4-star DE D'Andre Walker to Visit Michigan

D'Andre Walker

2015 Fairburn (Ga.) Langston Hughes four-star defensive end D'Andre Walker performed well on the first day of Sound Mind Sound Body and is ready to swing through for a few Midwest visits including Michigan.

HARPER WOODS, Mich. -- Making the trek all the way up from Georgia, 2015 Fairburn (Ga.) Langston Hughes four-star defensive end D’Andre Walker stood out amongst the pack during day one of Sound Mind Sound Body.

Standing 6-foot-3, 212-pounds, Walker drew plenty of attention from several different coaching staffs in attendance.

“Working out and stuff like that, it was just like a regular workout at school or at home when I work out with my uncle,” Walker said. “All the drills we did out here I’ve done before so the workout wasn’t anything.

But all the 1-on-1’s and the competition, it was great. It’s another great opportunity that we got to have.”

Appearing athletic enough to be a hybrid or even full time linebacker at the next level, Walker wants it to be clear he knows exactly where he’d like to play in college.

“Defensive end,” Walker said. “And I plan on going to school to play defensive end. If they want me to play outside linebacker I won’t be going there more than likely.”

On his skills Walker added, “Rushing the passer and speed off the ball and working on my hands now. That’ll be good during the season.”

Performing in front of coaches from Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State, Walker plans to see all three schools on his way back down south.

“I’m going to Michigan and Michigan State and yesterday I went to Cincinnati,” Walker said.

“It’ll be this weekend.”

Asked about his familiarity with the programs in Ann Arbor and East Lansing, Walker admitted he needs to find out quite a bit more.

“I couldn’t tell you nothing about them,” Walker said. “I just know that they offered so I’m trying to get out to see all those schools and see what they offer.”

Looking for specific traits out of his college choice, Walker already has a plan for his major.

“Educational purposes I want to go to school and major in journalism and broadcasting,” Walker said. “And then I want to of course play defensive end, don’t plan on being moved, and everything like that.”

While Walker isn’t actively seeking to leave the south, the four-star talent remains open to all suitors.

“My options are open,” Walker said. “If I can leave home then I’ll enjoy doing it.”
