On June 17, McKinney safety Adrian Shepherd committed to Washington State. A month later, another star McKinney defender committed, this time it was defensive end Jonathan Jones committing to Missouri.
Yesterday, another McKinney three-star player committed. Wide receiver, Omari Walker announced via his twitter that he was commuting to Arkansas State.
“I love coach Cefalo, (WR’s coach) humble beginnings it sounded very much so like my story. They’re letting me run track and play football and I’m 40 minutes away from my brother,” Walker said.
Walker had other offers from Illinois State and SMU but ultimately chose Arkansas State.
Walker is an absolute burner on the football field and track. He’s been timed running a 10.5 100-meter dash and a 4.48 40-yard dash back at the beginning of January of 2019. He was also a Junior Olympic All-American.
“Lots of prayers and working hard, never give up,” Walker said on what leads to his success.
Walker transfers to Mckinney for his senior season, a Mckinney squad who made it to the area round of the 6A D2 playoffs last season. Walker though didn’t hold back from his and his teams ultimate goal in 2020.
“A state championship,” he said.
The 5’9 175-pound wide receiver is a three-star wideout via the 247Sports Composite. He’s viewed as the 221st ranked wide receiver in the 2021 class and the 236th overall player in the state of Texas.
He is the 10th hard commit for Arkansas State’s 2021 class and the third Texan. He joins quarterback Wyatt Begeal (Steele) and offensive tackle Jackson Andrews (Samuel Clemens.)
“I love every single one of them (fans) and if they come to fall in love with God they will see a big difference in their life,” Walker said.
