When the July evaluation period kicked off, one of the hot 2013 names for Kentucky fans was Chris Walker, a 6’10″ power forward rated by Rivals as the #3 overall player in his class. He famously slept through Calipari’s phone call when the recruiting period kicked off in June and said back around Christmas that the Cats were #1 on his list. Since then, John Calipari has been keeping tabs on him and his Florida Rams teammates, two of whom earned scholarship offers last month. Walker, however, hasn’t received a scholarship offer yet and is still singing the same tune. He thinks it’s coming soon and he’s still very interested in Kentucky – so interested, he plans on visiting.
Here is what he had to say to CBS’ Jeff Borzello of Blood:
One school noticeably absent from that list of offers is Kentucky. The Wildcats have offered juniors Kasey Hill and Malik Price-Martin, who also play in the Florida Rams AAU program.
“They may offer soon,” Walker said.
Although it’s still early in the process, five schools are standing out for the rising junior.
“I’m really feeling Florida, Kentucky, Ohio State, Kansas and Florida State,” he said.
With Adidas Nations over, he plans on taking trips to Kentucky, Ohio State, Florida, Kansas and Alabama.
Then, just a few minutes ago, Walker Tweeted out this:
An offer has to be coming, right? Right?!?!?!
