Pflugerville, Texas quarterback Todd Walker is one of the state's top prospects for 2005 and several schools have already stepped forward with offers.
“Todd is a very good athlete for us,” Pflugerville coach George Hermann said. “He’s our quarterback, but some people think he’ll be a defensive back in college. I just know he’s good enough to play college football.”
As a quarterback in 2003, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Walker threw for 789 yards and rushed for 832. He scored a combined 17 touchdowns.
“I think he wants to be a quarterback,” Hermann said. “That would be his first choice. We’re going to let him show his talents there, but he’s a good enough athlete to play elsewhere if that’s what he decides to do. I think he’ll be one of the better quarterbacks around the state this next year.”
Walker already has scholarship offers from Baylor, Texas A&M, Purdue and Houston.
“Those four aren’t alone as far as schools looking at him,” the coach said. “He’s getting interest already from Texas, Texas Tech and Alabama.
