    Walker is listing Marquette, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Wake Forest, Michigan, Oklahoma State, and N.C. State; tOSU has offered and they have been consistently at his games and talking to his coach. Georgia Tech is his leader at this point, he is unsure of his visits, but tOSU is a possibility.

    He is averaging around 19 ppg and his team is (18-1).

    From the Illinois site...as of right now Walker favors Georgia Tech, Illinois, and Marquette. He has offers from Marquette, Ohio St., Baylor and California. Illinois has told them they are really intersted in him.

    bn44820 - it looks like you can go ahead and add and offer to the title of this thread.

    Will is currently playing for the Illinois Wolves on the AAU tour. A very unselfish player who makes others around him better.

    Don't really understand why Marqutte is in the picture as they have Dominic James from Richmond IN. 9who the bucks wanted) on the way. Both these guys seem like point guards only.

    At the Spiece Tourney in Indiana this weekend, Walker was not flashy but solid and his game reminds people of Deron Williams. Walker states that Ohio State is recruiting him the hardest and NC State, Miami, Georgia Tech and Illinois are involved also.

    Walker says he has been offered by Ohio State, North Carolina State and Miami (FL). He likes Illinois but they have not offered and that bothers him. Walker briefly says that right now its hard to turn down Ohio State with the possible recruiting class and he has talked to Oden and Conley about him coming to OSU.​
    He feels OSU will be tough to beat if they get all of the recruits they are targeting. (This is the Illini board and they are talking about OSU!)

    I wonder how hard we are pursuing Walker given the likelihood that we sign Conley. Having another top 100 player in the 2006 class certainly can't hurt, but I also wonder if we are ever going to go after someone like Raymar Morgan with an offer.

    To me, one of the most interesting things about the article was when Walker said he talked to Conley and Oden "about me coming there (OSU)."

    wadc....my impression is from the article is that Walker thinks its a done deal that Oden and Conley are OSU bound.

    I have heard that Walker is a back-up plan in case Conley decides to go to Wake, no offense to Walker he is a great prospect also.

    From the NC State site...Will has an offer from NC State, to go with offers from Marquette, Ohio State (?), Baylor, California and Miami. He lists his top 3 as NC State, Miami, and OSU. He is a little upset that Illinois has not offered.

    Playing in the Louisville Legends Classic on Saturday, Walker had 15 points in a win over All-Ohio Red. He showed the ability to finish on the break and is always a pass first type of player.
