AMITE CITY, La. — Elijah Walker’s offers are slowly beginning to accumulate, and more seem to be imminent in the next few months.
Numerous SEC teams have been in touch with the dual-threat quarterback out of Amite (La.) High School about attending a camp this summer.
Alabama and Auburn are among the schools that have shown interest in the 6-foot-3, 198-pounder signal-caller. In-state LSU has caught Walker’s attention, too.
“I love the offense,” Walker said of LSU. “I think I can fit in pretty good because I can throw and run.”
Walker holds offers from schools such as Memphis, Colorado State, South Alabama and Texas State, but plans on traveling to the SEC for camps this summer.
Walker’s high school coach, Zephaniah Powell, believes schools from Power 5 conferences will begin to extend the quarterback offers once they can watch him play in person.
A trek to Baton Rouge, La., is certainly on Walker’s to-do list.
“I want to hit every camp,” Walker said.
LSU began to court Walker soon after he wrapped up his junior season, and it doesn’t hurt that the quarterback is teammates with five-star wide receiver Devonta Smith.
The Tigers have a natural edge over some of their SEC counterparts, and an offer certainly could alter things in Walker’s recruitment.
“It’s my home team,” Walker said. “I’ve wanted to play for them forever.”
