ESPN 150 prospect Brian Walker (Charlotte, N.C./Mallard Creek) has been committed to North Carolina since March, but several other programs have not stopped coming after the 5-foot-11, 180-pound cornerback. Walker made plans to check out one of those programs on Saturday.
“I was going to take an unofficial visit to Tennessee Saturday, but it did not work out,” Walker said.
Although he was not able to make the trip, the No. 112 prospect still plans to be on campus in Knoxville at least once.
“Tennessee and Ole Miss are pretty much guaranteed official visits either later on this season or after the season,” Walker said. “West Virginia is a possibility, but I am not sure.”
Although he is still evaluating his options, Walker said that because of the persistence from the North Carolina coaching staff, he is not planning to switch from the Tar Heels anytime soon.
“I stay in contact with North Carolina the most and that is probably why I am so solid to them now,” Walker said. “They message me on Facebook or talk to my dad just about every day. They have been trying to get me back down for a game. The contact that we have is pretty good and nothing has really changed as far as my relationship with them.”
