2016 RB Walton Set to be a Cane

2016 RB Walton Set to be a Cane

Tito Benach
2016 Booker T Washington (Fla.) Mark Walton is one of the few 2016 prospects who holds a Miami offer. Walton was participating in the Al Golden Football camp and enjoyed his time in Coral Gables.

“I was going out there and competing. Just getting coached by coach (Hurlie) Brown was a great part for me. I learned some new drills and workouts that I can take back to the program.”

Walton enjoyed how coach Brown stresses effort with the running backs and is very honest.

“The one thing coach Brown stressed at the camp was effort, he will keep it real with you, saying you gotta keep competing and keep putting in effort. He would say 'if you mess up just go to the back of the line and try again'.”

The 5’10 175 running back was offered by Miami back at a junior day. When asked where the Hurricanes stand, he gave an answer Miami fans would like to hear.

“On my list Miami stands right at the top because I know I’m going to want to stay home and play for the university of Miami because I want my parents to see me and I don’t want to go too far. So right now Miami is on top of my list for recruiting.”

Walton’s top list of schools consist of Miami, Alabama, Florida State, Georgia and Virginia.

The Booker T product was offered by head coach Al Golden and talked a little bit about getting the chance to speak to him.

“At the camp I really didn’t get to talk to coach Golden too much, but when he offered me I got to talk to him. I think he is a very good coach and I like what he is doing with the program and trying to bring it back.”

While Walton is still three years away from making a decision, he is looking to make an early decision and Miami looks like the landing spot.

“I’m thinking about letting everyone know next year after football season. I was thinking about committing this year, but my parents want me to hold off. So I’ll probably wait until next year, but Miami is were I’m gonna be at.”

Walton plays with other Booker T star Chad Thomas, who is also being recruited by Miami and spoke about where he thinks he will end up.

“Actually after the camp I was asking him and he asked me if I would go to Miami and I said yes and then I said ‘how about you’ and he said ‘I would go to Miami too because they get guys in the league because of D-line and he can help out with the pass rush. So I think he will end up at Miami.”

We have some ridiculous momentum going right now.
 
youngblood is a stud....phenom
 
Hope he backs up all the talk. Kid is a stud. Need to keep the local ballers home
 
Beat the Gators on Sept. 7th and all hell will break loose. Cook, Moten, Clark. Come on back down!

I'm not prone to hyperbole, but I agree that a victory could very well cause this to happen.

Nothing else needs said about that other commitment that happened this weekend but this staff just keeps showing their resilience. Just look at what we added to 2013 after signing day and have just carried that momentum until it reached a fever pitch this weekend. Just awesome.

Nice article. The kid seems real sincere and has a lot of family pride. I love that... I hope he goes for it at the U!
 
But but... this kid plays for Booker T and Ice Harris HATES UM and will never allow any of his players to come here!!!
 
We gotta get these '16 kids to share the :neonu: love with the 2014 guys
 
I never thought I see the day when us Canes fans would be so happy to get a bunch of 2 or no star recruits (I know one is a 4 and Mike is a 3 but the majority are unknowns). Don't get me wrong I love the momentum but I'm tired of all the 4 and 5 star recruits in our backyard (who grew up Miami fans) going somewhere else. It's sad that these Miami,Immokalee, Ft. Lauderdale 4 and 5 star kids don't realize that if they all stayed home and Played for Miami they would never lose a college game. Instead they spread all across the Nation and only a lucky few get to bring a National Title to someone elses home.

Yup. I want to get back to years like 08 when we landed all the 4 and 5 star kids in our backyard and it led to multiple championships.
