Cougs land verbal from Texas safety
Worthen did eventually reach Walker. "I committed to Washington State," Walker said. "I verballed Thursday night."
Walker was not available for full comments, but did give his reasons for committing via text message.
"I'm ready to help turn the program and the culture around at WSU," said Walker. "I love what coach Leach was able to do out here in Texas and I just want to be a part of something good. I also like the family environment."
As a junior this past season, Trevor Walker racked up 89 tackles, 17 pass break-ups and five interceptions. He was named first-team 5A All-District.
His prep coach at Mansfield Timberview High in Arlington is Mark Walker, a one-time Oklahoma State tight end who was teammates with Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas.
Once we land an interview with the young man, likely Saturday morning, we'll bring you his comments immediately.
Walker is the first verbal commit for the Cougars in the 2013 recruiting cycle, and is one of the earliest in Cougar history.
