Walton recaps official visit to USC

January 20, 2013 

LB Jonathan Walton of Mobile, AL made his official visit to USC over the weekend and found everything to his liking.

"I enjoyed it," Walton said. "It was a new experience. I liked very bit of it. The fans got to me real well. I had people knowing who I was just walking around."

Walton spent a lot of time talking with defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward and linebackers coach Kirk Botkin.

"They're going to be put me at outside linebacker," he said.

Walton has not made a final decision, however.

"I'm still thinking things over," he said. "I'm going to Auburn next week and will announce a few days after that visit."

Tennessee is the only other school he's still considering.

"I'm going to stay in the SEC," he said."

Tennessee will visit Walton Monday, and Ward and Botkin will be in on Wednesday. Steve Spurrier plans to visit him after he returns from Auburn.

Walton said there is no leader.
