Newton, Texas, is becoming a popular recruiting destination for college coaches.

The Eagles have five players with FBS scholarship offers ready to suit up for them next season. Caiden Walker, a 2019 offensive tackle, is the latest to report an offer. Walker posted via Twitter on Wednesday evening that UTEP had offered him.

Last season, Walker anchored an offensive line that helped Newton finish 15-0 and as the Class 3A Division II state champions.

UTEP competes in the Conference USA. The Miners finished 0-12 this past season.

Walker, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any team that offers him beginning in December.
