Nothing really new to update but he does mention where he'll be camping...

Top 5 in order mentioned: Minnesota, Ohio State, Penn State, USC, & LSU. He mentions that he does not have a favorite though.

He will be attending the PSU Nike Camp on May 15th. He has already visited Minnesota for a junior day.

He will be camping at Ohio State, USC, & Minnesota this summer.

He is very impressed that we were the first to offer him which propelled us into his Top 5.

a few interesting tidbits...

*he commented that he has discussed with his dad (former PSU player) that PSU might not be the same fit for Walker as it was for his dad

* the fact tOSU was first to offer means something to Walker-maybe this helps us overcome the hometown team (Minny) and his dad's team (PSU)

hopefully his visit to tOSU goes well
