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.
â€œThey may offer soon,â€ Walker said.
Although itâ€™s still early in the process, five schools are standing out for the rising junior.
â€œIâ€™m really feeling Florida, Kentucky, Ohio State, Kansas and Florida State,â€ 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?Â Right?!?!?!
