Walker shutting it down

Jermel Walker has been hearing more especially from two schools in recent weeks but Oregon State fans shouldn't be too concerned.
The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., three-star wide receiver said Cal and Minnesota have expressed more interest recently but that he's sticking with his commitment and giving it no second thoughts.
"It's still going pretty good," Walker said. "Schools like Cal and Minnesota have contacted me. It's been going pretty good right now but my commitment is solid."
The 6-foot, 165-pound prospect has been committed to Oregon State since late July and after considering other trips earlier this season he has decided to close it down and stick with the Beavers.
His official visit to Corvallis in November was a big selling point and Walker said he's happy with his decision.
He likes the coaching staff, the family environment and the success Oregon State had this past season and is looking forward to being a part of the team.
"It's really like a family," Walker said.
"I love being around family-type people. I think I can be there for a few years and I would like to be around them. The football program is pretty good and they did great last season so the program is going uphill and I want to be a part of that."
Despite the new interest, Walker said he is not planning any other official visits and is ready to sign with Oregon State.
Houston, Minnesota, Nevada, Utah, Utah State and Washington State have also offered the three-star recruit.
