Plans can change – and rather quickly, when it comes to recruiting – but as of now, Tech point guard C.J. Walker intends to wait until sometime beyond the July evaluation period to make a college decision.
The 6-foot Walker took an unofficial visit to Illinois over the weekend. That trip followed an unofficial visit to Xavier the previous weekend. In between, he helped the IndyStar Indiana Junior All-Stars to a split of two exhibition games against the Indiana All-Stars.
Walker, who averaged 23.8 points, 3.7 assists and 3.5 rebounds as a junior, is considering Butler, Florida State, Illinois, Missouri, Pitt, Wichita State and Xavier.
“I’m probably going to cut it down again after July,” he said. “I’m going to go strong (in July) and see what happens.”
The former Purdue recruit is ranked No. 149 in the class by Rivals. He has his first two official visits scheduled this month – at Florida State from June 18-21 and at Butler from June 26-28. He said it’s likely at this point that he’ll make more official visits after July.
Walker said Nebraska has made recent contact but he’s more likely to focus in on the seven schools on his current list.
“I really want to focus on my seven,” he said. “Those are the seven I’ve been comfortable with.”
*Warren Central rising senior guard Djimon Henson is on an unofficial visit to Northern Kentucky today. Henson, who was a Junior All-Star, visited Western Illinois last week and has an unofficial visit to IUPUI scheduled for this Thursday.
