Former Arizona signee Lee Walker took an official visit to Colorado this past weekend. After a very solid visit, the mid term enrollee decided Boulder was the place for the talented wide receiver. Go "Inside" to see what Walker had to say about the Buffs and the CU Coaching Staff.

One former Pac 12 signee didn’t give up on his hopes of qualifying academically and getting the opportunity to play in one of the best conferences in the country.

San Diego wide receiver Lee Walker graduated from Madison Senior HS in 2012, he signed on national signing day with Arizona.

Instead of going to junior college like the Wildcats wanted him to, he stayed home in California and worked on making his test score.

Walker achieved that test score this fall and has now committed to the Colorado Buffaloes after taking an official visit to Boulder this weekend. spoke to Walker about his decision to be a Buff.

“My visit was fun,” Walker said. “They showed us the entire campus, the college town and everything about the program.”

Another thing that Walker learned about the University of Colorado is its academic support program for their athletes.

“The academic support department is incredible,” Walker said. “I really feel that I can be successful in the classroom with all of the support that I will be getting. I haven’t felt that way before.”

Walker was suppose to enroll this past fall at Arizona, but after failing to achieve his test score he stayed at home and worked on getting a qualifying test score. Now that he has that score he will enroll at Colorado in January.

“This is the best thing that could happen to me,” Walker said. “I didn’t want to go to junior college. Now I have the opportunity to play in the Pac 12 and play for some great coaches.”

Walker was recruited by Buffs Wide Receiver Coach Troy Walters, he apparently is impressed with Walters and CU Head Football Coach Mike MacIntyre.

“Coach Mac is a very interesting Head Football Coach,” Walker said. “I say that because I have played for a lot of different coaches and he is very unique in the way he actually cares more about his players as individuals. He cares about his players like they are his family, that was impressive to me. He is a more complete coach because he cares about everything. Coach Walters is a great coach, he played wide receiver and was one of the best at it.”

Walker, a 5-foot-11, 178-pound athlete who runs a 4.4 forty, is happy to be a Buff.

“A lot of the guys on the trip committed,” Walker said. “There is a lot of excitement in this program and I’m glad I’m going to be a part of it.”
