Another commit has signed with Wake Forest football, this time in the form of 3* running back Kenneth Walker out of Arlington, TN. Walker is 5'9" and 191 pounds, and is the 154th ranked running back in the class.
He originally committed to Kent State on October 8th, 2018, but decommitted on November 26th after Wake Forest offered him a scholarship. A week later he committed to Wake and he is now signed officially!
He combined for 1,616 yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior in rushing and receiving before tacking on another 1,596 and 23 touchdowns as a senior. Overall he finished his high school career with 3,408 rushing yards on 6.9 YPC, and 61 total touchdowns. All stats courtesy of MaxPreps.
Walker may be a lower profile recruit than many of the others, but what we do know is that Coach Clawson and our staff tend to do a very good job evaluating talent. I trust what the staff sees in him and there have been a handful of really good players to commit to Wake late in the process (Jessie Bates sticks out immediately) .
Welcome to the family, Kenneth. Go Deacs.
