Redlands East Valley defensive back Gary Walker recently committed to the University of Idaho according to REV coach Kurt Bruich. Walker, who was an all-CIF and all-County selection after transferring from Rialto High School last offseason, visited Idaho this past weekend and apparently loved every bit of his trip.
“After seeing Gary early this week, I had an idea of where he was going,” Bruich said. “I know that he had a great time up there.
“He’s a great pickup for Idaho. He’s a special player. He plays fast and when you need an impact play, he’ll come up with it for you.”
Walker chose the Vandals over teams such as Arizona State and Fresno State. He had been to both campuses, but chose Idaho’s instead. He is the third Wildcat to make that choice in recent years, joining kicker Trey Farquhar (2008) and linebacker Andre Ferguson (2007).
“We have a nice pipeline going there,” Bruich said. “Gary knows those guys, which will definitely help him out.”
