A.J. Walker Talks of Decision

ScoutSouth.com caught up with Huntsville, (Ala.) wide receiver A.J. Walker this afternoon while he was visiting the University of Alabama. Walker speaks of his decision to walk-on at the University.

"I'm at Alabama right now on an unofficial visit," A.J. Walker stated. "I came down here to hang out with some of my friends this weekend, and I called and told the coaches I would be there. They invited me to come by and talk with them. I spoke with them, and I toured the facilities. They were telling me that they were glad to have me and hoped I would be another Rashad Johnson."

"This isn't my first time in Tuscaloosa. I've been down here a bunch of times."

"I had offers from BYU, UNA and MTSU (Middle Tennessee). I considered UNA because my brother is up there, but I knew it wasn't for me. I was getting some interest from other schools, but I stopped answering my phone in mid-December because I knew I was going to Alabama."

ScoutSouth.com also asked Walker about his expectations going into his college career.

"I just want to find a place to play," Walker answered. "The coaches are talking about trying me at wide receiver. I want to play wide receiver, but I will play on special teams or wherever I can get an opportunity."

Asked when will he arrive permanently on the Tuscaloosa campus and Walker replied, "We talked about getting in early for spring and summer. If I can't do that I will enroll the first day of school in the fall."
