The Walker factor

Marlon Pollard is the second defensive back to de-commit from UCLA in the last week (Byron Moore de-committed and committed to USC). Asked if he was worried defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker might leave for a head coaching gig, Pollard said:
“That was definitely in my mind. He was the person I liked a lot at that school. Coach (Karl) Dorrell left. I just didn’t want to choose a college over one person I’d be working with. I respect him to the fullest. I have to make the right decision overall for my whole college. I’ve been in California my whole life. I don’t really like California, to tell you the truth. I’ve been wanting to get away from California. It’s not that I don’t like it, but it’s time for a change. I’ve lived here my whole life. I want to travel.”
