"He's just been a regular, solid player,” defensive backs coach Bobby Jack Wright said. "He's not particularly flashy, but he's had a solid career and been a good player for us. And he's a great guy off the field. You'd like all of them to be that way.”
Walker has only three interceptions in his career, and none this year, but the one he made last season against the Broncos arguably could've been among the great plays in Sooner history had OU held on for the victory.
Walker hasn't forgotten that, either.
When he learned his favorite video game, NCAA Football 2008, had Boise State quarterback Jared Zabransky on the cover, Walker paid extra money to have former OU standout Adrian Peterson put on the cover of his ordered game instead.
"To lose like we did left a bad taste,” Walker said. "It was like a bad dream.
"But it's good to be back. It's exciting.”
