Walters Still Open

Two players that block for Trevon Walters made their college choices last week. This Bradenton Manatee running back star is still open with the process. Someone will get themselves a gem.

Trevon Walters is a very good three-star running back prospect from Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee High School. He will be their big play guy this fall after rushing for 1,119 yards and 20 [overall] touchdowns last season as a junior.

"I think the kid can play just about anywhere," said Chris Conboy, Manatee's quarterback coach and recruiting coordinator. "He came in at 193-pounds and was just 189 at our physical the other day. He has good speed and great hands and I don't understand why he doesn't have more offers. It could be because he moved here from Alabama and played on the JV his sophomore year. I think he's better than [former four-star Manatee standout] Mike Blakely."

Walters has scholarship offers from Missouri, USF, FIU, Toledo, and Tulane. He is a solid running back prospect that has the luxury of running behind an outstanding high school offensive line. That said, he has many favorable attributes. Walters is a tough runner inside the tackles. He's a north-south back that runs behind his pads. He has good balance, feet, and vision. He doesn't have overwhelming power, size, quickness or speed but he's big enough and at times he can run through tackles, out run everyone to endzone or make a nice open field move. What he does exceptional well is run with patience, waiting for his blocks to set up before he does his thing.

Walters can also catch the ball out of the backfield. In 2012 he had 29 receptions for 411 yards.
