The 2024 Rice Football recruiting class keeps getting better. The Owls have landed a commitment from Brown WR Graham Walker.
National Signing Day is right around the corner and the 2024 Rice Football recruiting class just keeps getting better. Not long after landing a commitment from the highest-rated high school recruit in program history, the Owls have nabbed a potential impact player from the Transfer Portal, picking up a commitment from Brown wide receiver Graham Walker.
Walker joins the Owls following a standout career at Brown in which he posted 127 catches, 1,496 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns in three seasons. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound playmaker gives Rice a big-bodied option to pair with redshirt sophomore Rawson MacNeill, adding some size to a position group that weighs more toward speed than height.
The addition of Walker also adds experience to a young core of pass catchers as standout Luke McCaffrey heads to the NFL. Seeing the production of McCaffrey and the current NFL success of former Rice receiver Austin Trammell was something Walker took notice of when it came to making his decision.
“Seeing the track record of guys going to the NFL and the guys that the coaching staff has developed just provides more and more reason to join such a great program,” he told The Roost.
There’s a ton to like when it comes to Walker’s tape. Beyond his size, he runs crisp routes and wins when the ball is in the air. He’s not afraid to play through contact and has a nose for the endzone. In addition to the on-field talent, he shared the distinction of being the half-brother of Kansas City Chief quarterback and NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes.
