BRIARWOOD CHRISTIAN HEAD COACH FRED YANCEY
"Walker is absolutely one of the finest defensive linemen that I've seen in all my years of coaching, and I've been at it for nearly 40 years.
"I think Coach Johnson and Vanderbilt are getting a tremendous prospect in Walker May. He simply had an unbelievable amount of plays for our football team this year.
"You're also talking about someone that is a Vanderbilt-type young man. Walker's just a terrific kid, a great leader in football, an excellent student with the books, and a good citizen off the field. He's a pretty special young man, one that Vanderbilt fans are really going to enjoy."
