        Was supposed to talk to Rees and then BK 2 days later in the last week or so I I’d guess BK put the ball in his court then and sounds like he called staff yesterday

              Waiting on Crusader to tell us whether or not his 200m times are elite, especially since he's listed at 6-3.

                Got injured early in his junior season. Probably a contributing factor in his low ranking.

                  What were the times? I only saw freshman times on his Athletic.net profile and they were not indicative of his athletic ability.

                    No idea, I just figured Crus has them on a spreadsheet somewhere lol

                        Walker I think represents just different for the WR room. We have tended to have bigger WRs or smaller height wise but not build wise. WRs that are (I am sure someone can name someone) the thin rangy type have been uncommon. I like that they identified a hole and possible difference maker

                            Plays defense too and doesn't seem to mind mixing it up.
                            It is no coincidence that the growth of modern tyrants has in every case been heralded by the growth of prejudice.

                              That puts us at 9 commits from 9 different states. Crazy
                              60% of the time, it works every time.

                                  So, this is a guy that I like quite a bit but he'll need some time. His individual workout footage shows a long, bouncy, and quick athlete. But, one that will need some physical development. Could be a real gem in time. Plus I love going into LA to get football players.

                                      That's pretty impressive stuff to me. Good bounce and loose hips. Like stated above he has a skillset that could translate well to DB.

                                          Ponchatoula is the hometown of another Domer, Irwin Davis. Thanks wikipedia

                                            Here's the write ups I found:

                                            Didn't realize Walker's HS coach also coached Terry Joseph. Hope that works out with Wagner-Freeman/Mickens too.

                                                He’s been a target for a while actually. Offered back in Nov and has had pretty normal mentions since Jan. Lost in the shuffle here at IE but I think they’ve always liked him

                                                Terry Joseph actually deserves a minor assist here for starting us off with Walker

                                                  In this coaching staff I trust. Nice to see ND get into Louisiana. I hope ND can land Morris.

                                                    He got offered in early November. He was on the radar through Twitter last summer.

                                                              If he is twitchy enough to get recruited at cornerback, but has the skills of a wide receiver, what is not to like about this pick up? You need kids like him in your WR room. I like the pick up. I will love to see his senior film even more and see how much more advances in his game he's made.

These are the type of calculated risks you want the team to take, but I think there’s a legit concern that we’re heading for a class with multiple projects at WR.

These are the type of calculated risks you want the team to take, but I think there’s a legit concern that we’re heading for a class with multiple projects at WR.
                                                                              I think it just depends on how one defines projects. Projects because their rankings/ratings are lower than their peers? Or because of their tangible traits and skillsets? For example, I don't know what is a project about Bradshaw. He's got great speed and is bigger than say, Tyler Morris. If Tyler wasn't out of IL and tied to Boom, I'd take Bradshaw over him everyday.

                                                                              Mike Frank had a good breakdown of the WR board. In general, I think this is just a deep WR class and some of it hasn't been fettered out yet due to Covid. Throw ratings/rankings aside and a lot of these guys are very similar.

                                                                              With all that said, I do believe Walker is because he just has that much physical development in front of him. But so does Tobias Meriweather. And, Tyler Morris is 175 so he likely does as well.

                                                                                          He stopped doing track at ND and his pro day 40 was a very fast (but not elite football speed) 4.44.

I'm guessing those people haven't watched his tape. He seems incredibly fast for being 6'4". His game reminds me a little bit of Martavis Bryant. I love the pickup and welcome aboard!
