The 6-foot-4, 309-pound Walker is an unranked prospect, according to the industry-generated 247 Composite.
Walker is now the 10th total commitment in the 2024 class for Colorado. He also becomes the second offensive lineman to pledge to the Buffaloes in this cycle, joining Nevada (Mo.) High offensive lineman Talan Chandler, who committed back in February. Colorado currently holds the No. 66-ranked class nationally.
The Buffs are searching for immediate offensive line help, as they have struggled to protect their quarterback all season.
“Offensively, we’ve got to improve. You see that. Quarterback is taking a beating,” Deion Sanders said after Saturday’s game. “We’ve got to do a better job protecting him (and) running the football.” Colorado is hoping that adding a JUCO offensive lineman will give them someone who can step in immediately, and provide assistance to the line.
