Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson cornerback John Walker is claiming his first scholarship offer. Who pulled the trigger on the 6-foot-0, 175-pounder?
"I've got one offer from Northwestern," he said. "They are supposed to be calling me, they talked to my coach.
"It's a good school. I'm just happy to get an offer and I'll take anything right now to go to college for free."

Though Walker doesn't know a lot about Northwestern, a few other schools are moving in as well.
"Vanderbilt is supposed to calling this week, North Carolina, Syracuse, Duke, Princeton, Marshall, Stanford and Colorado are interested," he said. "I'm a big fan of Miami, Florida, Oregon, Virginia Tech, my goal is to play in the SEC."
Walker just transferred from Carroll High School in Maryland to H.D. Woodson in D.C.
"I did great last year, I made a lot of plays, but I didn't play a lot until the middle of the season," he said. "I started low on the depth chart and worked my way up.
"I was at Carroll playing quarterback, but then I moved to safety and was at the bottom of the depth chart. I made a lot of special teams plays too."
With very little film to go on, Walker broke down his game.
"For one, most colleges from what I've heard are looking for student athletes in the classroom," he said. "I make sure I get all my work done. I've made the honor roll every year in high school. I even make sure my teammates aren't slacking. I'm also a locker room player, I get everyone motivated."
