Newton’s Caiden Walker Receives First Offer
While many East Texas recruits from 2018 signed their letters of intent on Wednesday, Caiden Walker had a marquee day of his own.
Walker, a 2019 tackle from Newton, received his first scholarship offer on National Signing Day, he posted on Twitter. Louisiana Monroe was the team to offer.
Walker was a starting tackle for Newton, which won the Class 3A Division II state championship in 2017. He was a key member of an offense that posted 460.3 yards and 52.2 points per game. He stands 6-foot-4 and is 276 pounds, according the the Eagles' roster on MaxPreps.
Louisiana Monroe competes in the Sun Belt Conference of the NCAA's Division I FBS subdivision. The Warhawks finished the 2017-18 season 4-8.
Walker, like all juniors, can first sign with any team that offers him beginning in December 2018.
