Walker to sign with Kent State
Arlington High School standout senior running back Kenneth Walker III announced on Oct. 8 that he plans to accept a scholarship offer from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. “I want to thank the Lord for this opportunity,” he tweeted last week. “Without him this would not be possible. I also want to thank my parents and my coaches and everyone who has supported me throughout this process. This process has been a great experience and I’ve enjoyed all of it.” Walker was also considering Western Kentucky, Arkansas State University, Mercer and Middle Tennessee, to name a few. Walker has rushed for 16 touchdowns this season and 41 since his sophomore year. So far this year he has led the 5-3 Tigers with 1,326 yards on 200 carries in just 8 games.
