Staying or going? Deion Walker
By Matt Fortuna
This week we are taking a look at each of Notre Dame's fourth-year scholarship players with eligibility remaining and examining whether he will likely return to the Irish next season. Here, we look at wide receiver Deion Walker.
Before Notre Dame: From Christchurch (Va.) High School, Walker entered Notre Dame as ESPNU's No. 18 receiver and its 103rd player overall.
At Notre Dame: The 6-foot-3, 206-pound Walker has played in seven games for the Irish the past three seasons, making one catch for 15 yards in 2009.
The verdict: Going. Walker came in as a highly touted recruit but was never able to crack the two-deep at receiver. Despite uncertainty around the unit next season, it is unlikely he would come back and leap over the younger players already ahead of him on the depth chart.
