Wide receiver/cornerback Kevan Walker (6-0, 180, 4.4) from Arcadia, Calif., committed to Minnesota earlier in the month of April, but that hasn't stopped other schools showing interest in him or has that stopped colleges from offering. The talented two-way standout received his second offer on Friday Evening.
"Coach Eric Scott offered me on Friday Night," Walker said. "I'm honored that a great school like UCLA like my skills enough to offer me to go there and play.
"I'm still committed to Minnesota and I like them a lot," Walker said. "I like Minnesota's academics and the whole coaching staff. I also like the spread offense that Minnesota is going to run and how I fit in with them.
"The UCLA offer definitely gives me something to think about," Walker said. "I'll take a more in-depth look at UCLA and how they compare with Minnesota.
"I'm going to take recruiting one day at a time. I have two good offers and if other schools come along and I'll look at them individually and will chose the school where I fit in best."
It was said that Walker was one of the best wide receiver prospects at a combine over the weekend and that could help his stock even more."
"I thought I did well in the one-on-ones," Walker said about his combine performance. "I caught some passes."
Minnesota and UCLA aren't the only schools that have taken a liking to Walker. Purdue, Wake Forest, Arizona State, Washington, LSU and Nebraska are also showing recruiting interest in Walker.
Walker earned first-team all-league as a cornerback and second-team cornerback as a wide receiver as a junior. He was also selected first-team all-area as a wide receiver and second-team all-state as a wide receiver.
As a receiver, Walker had 42 receptions for 650 yards and five touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, Walker played both corner and safety racking up 48 tackles and two picks.
Walker has outstanding bloodlines. His father is UCLA defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker. The elder Walker is letting his son make the decision.
