Kirby Smart has a special linebacker on the way in four-star Jalon Walker‍.

The 4-star outside linebacker from Salisbury (NC) is coming off a sensational spring football season earlier this year when he was named North Carolina Gatorade State Player of the Year.

The 6-foot-2 220-pounder has picked up right where he left off from last season and has been terrorizing ball carries all fall.

The 4th-ranked linebacker prospect in the county, Walker has elite instincts for the position to go along with a great frame and natural athleticism. He can carry the rock and make plays on offense as a running back, but he’s coming to Athens to make tackles. Lots of them.

A versatile defender, Walker has good speed for someone at 220-pounds, so while he may start out on the outside, he has the ability to play inside if they one day needed him too. He's an excellent tackler with great form. He strikes, drive the ball carrier backwards, and leaves a bruise when he does it.

Walker was a top target for Kirby Smart’s staff from the very beginning and they were able to land his commitment over Clemson on March 28th. Walker is the 3rd current Bulldog linebacker commitment along with four-star ILB C.J. Washington‍ and four-star OLB Darris Smith‍.

The North Carolina native is also Georgia’s 3rd-highest ranked commitment at this time, ranked as the No.43 overall prospect in the country for the 2022 class.
