Travon Walker is a 6-4 255-pound four-star defensive tackle. According to 247Sports, he’s the No. 3 defensive tackle in the country and the No. 5 prospect in the state of Georgia. He currently holds 12 offers from teams like Clemson, Alabama, South Carolina and Florida State. The Thomaston native is a must have for the Bulldogs, and could make an impact early on in Athens.

I spoke with  Walker and asked him about his recruitment and who is his top teams.

Q: So what do you think of Tray Scott?

A: “From what I have seen so far, he’s a great coach and he’s going to keep it 100.”
