“It was great, I had a nice time,” Walton said. “I actually met with the whole staff and I heard of the possibility of the offer through Coach (Keith) Gaither.”
The Ball State offer hits close to home for Walton. His father, Tim Sr., was an All-Mid-American Conference performer and 4 year starter at LB for Ball State. The elder Walton is also a member of the Cardinals’ athletic Hall of Fame.
“It’s really a blessing to be able to have a choice to play for my father’s Alma Mater,” Walton said. With all those offers already in hand it is just the tip of the iceberg for Walton.
“I’m also getting recruited by Illinois, Nebraska, Michigan, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Ohio State and the schools that have already offered me,” Walton said. :I’m scheduled to go to Kent State, Western Michigan and Bowling Green still this month.”
