Updated: Coug verbal about to decommit?

COUGAR VERBAL commit Trevor Walker out of Arlington, Texas, participated at the Oklahoma team camp this weekend and is "likely" to decommit soon from Washington State, according to a published report. Walker did not return Cougfan.com calls or text messages on Sunday but sent out a series of tweets Monday morning saying "nothing has changed". However, the most pressing question went unanswered.

The Oklahoma site on ESPN on Sunday, citing a conversation with Walker's father, Chris, at the Sooners' camp, reported that Walker's father said his son is likely to soon decommit from Washington State.

Phone and text messages left by CF.C on Sunday for Walker went unreturned.

UPDATE 2: Cougfan.com exchanged a series of tweets with Walker's Twitter account this morning, ostensibly seeking clarity on his earlier comments on Twitter that the story citing ESPN's report was unprofessional or inaccurate. CF.C asked him the following: "Trevor, per your request to tweet you this rather than direct message: Our story quotes an ESPN blog that says they talked with your dad and your dad told them you're likely to decommit. So you're saying that is completely untrue? Or that your dad was inaccurately quoted and that you're firmly committed to WSU?"
Walker would not address the questions but instead tweeted "My dad has his wishes, he only wants to be at every game. He has been at every game since I was 5. As far as my status since "4/19" NOTHING HAS CHANGED. That will be my only comment. Okay Im thru with the attention now.."
CF.C then asked inquired if his dad was accurately quoted and represented by the Oklahoma site on ESPN. As of 10:45 AM PT, CF.C had not received a response.

UPDATE 1: Walker made a series of tweets on Monday morning: "Working your butt off & trying to be the best brings unexpected tension, unexpected comments, & unexpected pressure from others...Nothing has changed....Im just a high school athlete & I'm already getting all this pressure from the media. I just wanna the best that I can be...That's the most unprofessional, irresponsible journalism in the country. Now imma probly get 20 more offers...OU dont even want me, I just went out there with a teammate & went put some work in. They already have their targetted guys....I really wish the people for http://scout.com was a little more professional & at least knew a little more about me. I've been a Safety..my whole high school carrer...The same company who thinks im a corner, thinks im decommitting. Look at my film, I'm a Safety."

CF.C reached out to Walker this morning for clarity and asked if he was still firmly committed to WSU and/or if the quote from his father by the ESPN Oklahoma site was erroneous. If we get a response we'll let you know.


Walker (6-1, 185, 4.53) is a safety out of Mansfield-Timberview High, and was Mike Leach's first verbal pledge for the 2013 class.

IT'S BEEN ABOUT six weeks since Walker verballed to Leach and Washington State.

"I'm the first commitment for them. I'm ready to come in at Washington State. I want to bring in more talent and help change the program and win football games," Walker said back in late April.

As a junior, Walker posted 89 tackles (34 solo) with 17 pass break-ups and five interceptions.

He is classified by Scout.com as a cornerback but WSU offered and recruited him at safety. Scout ranks him three stars and No. 49 in the country as a corner.

Junior season video reels of Walker are available here.
