Three-star defensive end Tyrunn Walker of Jones County Community College has the size and speed package that makes coaches drool.  At 6-foot-5, 270 pounds, Walker is almost impossible to block at times with his 4.84 speed. 

 

This year, Walker recorded 60 tackles and eight sacks for JCJC (6-4), which concluded its season this weekend.  In high school (Westgate HS in New Iberia, Louisiana), Walker was a rare breed of athlete, making 5A first-team all-state in both basketball and football.  In 2007, Walker's senior year at Westgate, he racked up an impressive 17 sacks as his team reached the semifinals for the first time in history.

 

Now that Walker's JUCO career has ended (on the field - he'll graduate in Business Administration next month), he's looking at a few four-year schools.

 

"My favorites are Southern Miss, Tulsa, Houston, Memphis, and Mississippi State," said Walker.  "I have been offered by all of them except for Mississippi State.  Their (Miss. St.) coach has been calling me though."

 

Walker, who also has an offer from Northwestern State, said he has not scheduled any visits yet, but he's going to make the rounds soon.

 

"I'm looking for a school where I can play right away," Walker said, "and I'm going to take a good look at each school's graduation rate." 

 

Walker, who is lightning fast for his size, draws comparisons to a young Javon Kearse.  While he has run a 4.84 in the 40-yard dash, Walker said his short-term goal is to get that time down to a 4.70.
