Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood four-star defensive end Demarcus Walker was supposed to take an out-of-state visit last weekend, but instead found himself visiting an in-state school once again.
"I was supposed to go to Auburn but I wouldn't have had a ride back so I ended up at Florida instead," Walker said.
The Rivals250 defensive end has taken numerous visits to Florida over the past year. This one wasn't much different, but he shed some light on his conversations with the coaching staff at Florida.

"I already know pretty much everything about Florida," Walker said. "Coach (Will) Muschamp was just telling me not to worry about the depth chart. They have (Sharrif) Floyd working at defensive end currently, and he is an inside guy. They are bringing in (Jonathan) Bullard and a couple other guys, but they need defensive ends. He told me that if I came there, that I would have a chance to compete for a job early on and help them.
"I felt a lot of love from the coaches when I was there," Walker added.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound defensive lineman is set to return to Gainesville again this weekend for their spring game.
"I am going to Florida this weekend for the spring game," Walker said. "I will go to either Alabama or Auburn next weekend more than likely."
With 28 offers to his name, Walker is getting close to making his list a more manageable one to work with.
"I am going to narrow it down sometime soon to probably seven or eight schools," Walker said. "I don't have a leader right now."
While Walker doesn't claim a leader, he knows of a few schools likely to make the cut for his services when he whittles his list down.
"I think Clemson, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Florida, and Florida State will make it," Walker said.
As for a decision, Walker said it likely won't come in the immediate future.
"I am graduating early so it will be sometime in the fall," Walker said. "I might do it on my birthday (Sept. 30th)."
As a junior, Walker registered 24 tackles for loss and 14 sacks.
