Few players in the DMV have a hotter recruitment right now than Kobie Walker. The safety out of Olney (Md.) Our Lady of Good Counsel has recently added from Rutgers, Syracuse and Arizona. Walker has more than ten offers now and has become pretty close with a few schools.
"I like Kentucky a lot," said the 6-foot-4, 198-pound Walker. "I went to go see their spring game. When I got there I liked the whole atmosphere and the coaches. The fans and everyone seemed so welcoming.
"A coach from Oklahoma State told my coach that I had an offer from them," he said. "I've talked with some coaches but I don't know too much about them either. It's way out there but I do know they have a great football program. It's definitely a viable option.

"Boston College wants me to come visit," Walker said. "I talk with Coach Albert a lot because he is my recruiting coordinator. I talk to Kentucky and Boston College pretty much every day. I've talked with Syracuse and a lot of their coaching staff. Those are the three I've been talking to the most.
"Syracuse came to my school and offered me then," he said. "I haven't had much contact with them. When you first think about Syracuse you think it's a basketball school but I also know that they have a good football team but I don't know much about them."
Curiously absent from Walker's offer sheet is his hometown school.
"I have no idea when Maryland will offer," said Walker. "Honestly, I thought that they would've already offered. Right now I get a lot of mail from them and have seen Coach Locksley a few times but they haven't offered me yet."
From the sound of things, Walker is planning on having a busy summer.
"I will be doing camps at Notre Dame and Maryland," he said. "Those are probably the only two I'm going to do. I don't have any visits scheduled yet but I'll probably do some. I don't have a scheduled time to decide where I'm going. If I feel like I really want to go to a certain school, then that's what I'll decide. I don't have a time in mind to do that."
Last season, Walker helped Our Lady of Good Counsel to an 11-1 record.
