Class of 2013 power forward Chris Walker says he’s not sure when he wants to make his decision of where’s he’s going to attend college. However, he does know where he would commit if he had to choose soon.
“If I had to commit right now, I would choose Kansas,” Walker said in a phone interview. “[Head] coach [Bill] Self is a really good coach and the support of the fans is good. It’s also a nice environment.”
Although Walker says publicly that no school is really sticking out to him, it’s clear a few are beginning to stand out from the crowd. One of them seems to be Florida.
Walker cites the Gators as the school that is both recruiting him the hardest and the program that has his favorite coaching staff. “I like Florida’s [coaching staff] the most,” Walker said. “They’ve been to the school the most and have been checking in the most.” However, he did say that he doesn’t care about location.
Baylor looks like another school that may be sticking out to Walker. Waco, Texas is the next place he wants to take an unofficial visit and although he doesn’t know the exact date of when he’s visiting, he does know that it’s going to be soon.
One of the things important to Walker in his decision process is the type of playing system that each team uses. “When I’m at the four I don’t just want to be inside,” he said. “I want to be used both inside and out, as a combo forward.”
Another factor that’s come into play in his recruitment recently has been the contact that Kentucky assistant coach Orlando Antigua made with him last Friday. Walker voiced his frustration over Twitter regarding the Wildcats seemingly low-interest level in the top five junior but it isn’t too late for Kentucky to do damage control.
As for a timetable for a cut in his list or a commitment, Walker says he doesn’t know when he’s going to make a decision. “I don’t have a timetable yet, I don’t have any times or dates.”
