Quay Walker now has a specific early February date in mind for his Georgia official visit.

Nation’s No. 3 LB, Quay Walker, emphatically confirms his UGA visit

Quay Walker is going to give Georgia his last official visit.

The nation’s No. 3 outside linebacker answered that question emphatically Monday afternoon.

“Shood yeah,” Walker told DawgNation in a message on Monday. “UGA is going to be my last official.”

“Shood” reflects a positive impression in Walker’s mind. That visit is expected to take place around Feb. 2, in advance of National Signing Day on Feb. 7.

There was some confusion last week regarding Walker’s visit plan. According to various reports, he likely was headed to both Alabama and Georgia over the weekend.

Walker ended up at Alabama, and SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner shared his breakdown of that visit here. Walker is an Alabama commit.

He had told DawgNation after the Under Armour All-America Game that it wasn’t certain that he would take an official visit to Alabama.

That obviously changed with Walker, who is a true three-down linebacker.

The Tide must re-solidify their relationships and recruiting connections to Walker. Both Derrick Ansley (former defensive backs coach) and Jeremy Pruitt (former defensive coordinator) have moved on professionally from the Alabama staff.

Ansley is now in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders. Pruitt is the new coach at Tennessee. The Volunteers hosted Walker last week and are now major players in the chase for him.

Walker is from Crisp County High School in Cordele, Ga., an area that hasn’t sent many Bulldogs to Athens through the years.

Quay Walker gets another rankings redo 

Walker received a final 5-star rating from 247Sports last week. 247Sports lists him as both the nation’s No. 3 OLB for 2018 and the No. 31 prospect overall.

Rivals also re-rated Walker in its final 2018 rankings release on Monday. He showed up as the nation’s No. 7 LB and as the No. 38 overall prospect on that scale.

His current position at No. 55 overall on the 247Sports composite should receive a rankings bump once the new Rivals ranking is factored into that algorithm. For now, he remains a 4-star prospect on the 247Sports composite.

The 6-foot-4, 225-pound prospect shared his latest thoughts on UGA in an in-depth interview with DawgNation earlier this month.  

New Georgia OLBs coach Dan Lanning made Walker his first stop on the road recruiting with the Bulldogs when the dead period was lifted earlier this month.
