According to Tom Dienhart of the Sporting News, DeWayne Walker has accepted Washington's offer to become its new defensive coordinator.
Here's what Dienhart has to say about it:
"Not only does losing him to Washington hurt UCLA's defense, it also will be a blow to the Bruins' recruiting efforts. Walker was one of the school's best recruiters, and there could be fallout with regard to UCLA's strong 2008 class."
I think that Walker is making a huge mistake by going to a program in which he is only guaranteed a job for a year since Willingham's status will come into question. The big issue that will come up now that Walker is gone is the incoming recruits. It's well known that Walker is instrumental in the recruiting game. Can RN convince these kids to come to Westwood? You know he'll be trying as hard as he can the minute he's allowed to do so. Even though RN stated that Walker was his No.1 recruit, I don't think he'll find this to be a terrible loss.
So what do you guys think? Will the Bruins lose multiple recruits if this report is true and Walker is out? Are you disappointed that he is leaving? And if he is indeed gone, who will RN look at to become our new DC?
