Recruiting Update - Darius Walker

Nice story on this talented young man from Buford GA. This guy has 54 scholarship offers in Div I-A. Holy cow! To give some perspective here, there are only 117 Div I-A programs in the country. Pretty much can write his own ticket.

What's really impressive is the smarts he has. A 4.0 GPA, a high level of maturity, and his head really seems in the right place. Maybe GT will find his heart with the unique combination of high-profile athletics and academics we have to offer. Can you imagine where this program could go with a talent like this in the backfield, Reggie Ball taking the snaps, Calvin Johnson at WR (another talented guy), along with the strength on both lines that Gailey is recruiting? Sky's the limit. We can dream.
