Notre Dame’s lone wide receiver commitment, Amorion Walker, camped at Alabama this weekend with several teammates and while he was there, the Crimson Tide offered the Irish pledge. While an Alabama offer is indeed worrisome, right now it appears that Walker’s commitment to Notre Dame is still strong.
Alabama’s offer came after Walker ran a 4.4 40 during the camp. Reminder: Amorion Walker is also 6’3″.
When Notre Dame offered Walker, they were one of the first programs to offer the 3-star recruit who is looking more and more like he’s a much better prospect than his current rankings suggest.
Ironically, the same Notre Dame fans who complained when the Irish offered an under-recruited 3-star receiver, are now worried about the Alabama offer. Walker trained with Notre Dame wide receiver Lawrence Keys over the off-season though and still seems very locked in with Notre Dame.
The big news here for Notre Dame isn’t the Alabama offer though – at least not yet. The big news is that Notre Dame’s evaluation and early offer have been validated even more after seeing Alabama try to get in on Walker now as well.
At the moment, Walker is Notre Dame’s lowest-rated commitment by far at #825 overall in the 247Sports Composite rankings. That almost certainly will change though – especially if more schools try to get in on Walker. Notre Dame fans should expect more to do just that too. Walker now has offers from Notre Dame, Florida State, and Alabama.
