Newton’s Caiden Walker Offered By McNeese State
Newton 2019 offensive lineman Caiden Walker received his fifth Division I scholarship offer on Thursday.
The Eagles' standout lineman reported via Twitter that McNeese State has offered.
Walker (6-3, 285) holds additional FBS offers from Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe, Tulane, and UTEP.
Newton has five players with FBS offers. In addition to Walker, 2019 RB Darwin Barlow, 2019 ATH Tamauzia Brown, 2019 QB/ATH Josh Foster, and 2020 DE James Sylvester currently have FBS opportunities.
Last season, Walker anchored an offensive line that helped Newton finish 15-0 and as the Class 3A Division II state champions.
McNeese State is an FCS school that competes in the Southland Conference. The Cowboys are coached by Lance Guidry and were 9-2 overall and 7-2 in league play a season ago.
Walker, like all juniors, can sign with any team that offers him beginning in December.
