SCHOOL: Upson-Lee High School

CITY, STATE: Thomaston, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, holds offer from UGA

# OFFERS: 12

NEWS & NOTES: Travon Walker is a talented junior Peach State D-lineman for Upson-Lee. He holds a scholarship offer from Georgia and is considered a heavy lean to the Bulldogs at the moment. Walker has visited Athens and UGA several times. He attended the Kirby Smart Football this past summer on June 2nd and then visited again in August. Walker also visited Georgia on Sept. 23rd for the Mississippi State game.

Until Walker adds more bulk to his frame, he will likely start out as an SDE at the next level, but if he can add on 30 to 40 lbs, he’ll be a terror on the inside, in the middle of the d-line.
