Florida 2015 athlete Michael Walker became the thirteenth member of the new recruiting class on Wednesday, continuing a strong June for Boston College recruiting.
The news was first broken by Eagle Action:

Walker is the second Florida recruit in this class; offensive lineman Wyatt Knopfke was the other. Like his future teammate Knopfke, Michael Walker is from the same region of the Sunshine State. Walker hails from Naples, where he is about to enter his senior season as a safety at Naples High School.
Rivals calls him a safety, but 247, MaxPreps, and his own Hudl page call him a quarterback and wide receiver. This makes Michael Walker the second “athlete” in the last week to commit to the Eagles with a background at quarterback. Elijah Robinson, who entered the fray one week ago today, is quarterback for his team in northern New Jersey.
As far as actually playing quarterback, however, it would seem he only had sixteen pass attempts for the 2013 season.
In addition to Boston College, Walker’s other offers come from Arizona, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Florida International, and Holy Cross. 247 had reported that there was interest from other major-conference schools, but the Eagles and Arizona Wildcats were the only two to offer.
When it comes to his play on the field — well, Hudl members can see the videos. We will give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he performed well in junior year, well enough to get an offer from Boston College.
At present, Michael Walker’s team is known as the Golden Eagles, which is not to be confused with the plain-old Eagles, which is Boston College’s team name. It is a shame we have to mention this on occasion.
We welcome Michael to the Heights.
