Walker chose the Wildcats over a scholarship offer from Western Kentucky and a walk-on offers at Penn State and Vanderbilt.
He is the second walk-on commitment UK has gotten in the past week.
Carson Whitehead, a linebacker for the Harlan County Black Bears, has accepted a preferred walk-on spot to join UK next year.
The 6’2″, 200 lb. backer was a four-year starter for the Bears and led the team in tackles in 2013 with 139 stops. He also rushed for 1,277 yards on 167 carries with 15 touchdowns.
