DeMarcus Walker '110 percent' with Tide

9/15/2012

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- ESPN 150 defensive end DeMarcus Walker and his Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood teammates suffered a tough 13-7 loss Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian on Friday night. The 6-foot-4, 274-pound athlete totaled four tackles for loss and a sack in the defeat.

Walker, who committed to Alabama on ESPNU's Recruiting Nation on Aug. 24, said he continues to hear from other schools despite his pledge to the Crimson Tide.

"Matter of fact, [Florida] coach [Will] Muschcamp called me (Friday),”Walker said. “He was asking me if I can come down for a visit. He asked me how I was doing and just checking up on me. He started talking to me about his family and things like that. I might come for the LSU game or the Kentucky game."

As for other visits, Walker says he is only sure of one other visit he knows he will take.

"I'm just trying to focus on my senior season,” the No. 24 overall prospect said. “I know I'm going back to my school Alabama. I'll be there for the Ole Miss game.

"Coach Mike Pelton from Auburn called me the other day. It's all up to my coach but we might go visit Auburn too at some point."

Walker had a chance to watch Alabama's dominating 41-14 victory over Michigan during the opening week of college football.

"I was jumping up and down," Walker said. "Roll Tide all the way."

Even though Walker is considering taking visits, he made it very clear where he stands with his commitment to Alabama.

"I'm 110 percent committed to Alabama," he said. "I just don't like getting stuck in the house so I might go take some visits. I don't know, I feel like right now, nobody can beat Alabama. They are recruiting me real hard and with everything I want to do in my life, they got it for me."
