Interview with four-star outside linebacker Moses Walker
Updated: Apr 12
As a sophomore in high school, Moses Walker already has offers from 10+ power conference schools. Walker still has two years of high school football ahead of him which means his recruitment is wide open.
On 247sports, Walker is the number one ranked player in New York. He currently attends Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, New York and helped lead them to a Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) City Championship this past season.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound outside linebacker is a quick, aggressive, and strong player. He still has a lot of time to develop. By his senior year, he as the potential to jump in the rankings to top-25 in the nation.
