Walker is the first defensive lineman to join ‘Zona’s 2018 recruiting class.
There were not many predictions for Walker at 247’s crystal ball, but the few that did come in had him heading to the Wildcats’ chief rival: Arizona State.
The Sun Devils are not alone in losing out in this one. Walker also holds offers from Indiana, Kansas, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and UCLA.
Arizona’s 10-man class is ranked No. 9 in the Pac-12, and No. 75 in the country.
