40 time: 4.5
From: Aurora, Colorado
High School: Grandview
"This season was just kind of frustrating because I was really only healthy for two quarters the whole year," said Walters. "I got hurt midway through the first game. I had trouble with my right ankle all year and I pulled my hamstring twice."
There was a silver lining with all of these injuries for Ryan.
"I really think it helped me build character. I was able to sit back and throw the ball and become more of a pocket passer. As the season went on the line became better at pass blocking and it was easier to stand back there and toss it."
Grandview fisnished up 8-3 on the year and Ryan missed two games completely.
Ryan's next stop is to begin school in Boulder January 12th. His goals for the football team are to absorb as much as he can at first.
"I just want to learn as much as I can so I am going to go up there and get involved and be a part of the team. I will compete in time but at first I am just going to learn as much as I can from Joel(Klatt) and Shawn(Watson)."
Walters will visit CU officially for the Nebraska game and will do his part in helping to recruit prospects the Buffs are after. He has already gotten a start on a player CU will probably recruit heavily in a couple of years, his teammate, wide receiver Aubrey Quarles. Aubrey is the younger brother of current Buff Clyde Surrell.
"Aubrey is my best friend so I have talked to him about CU. He is the best wide receiver in the state I have seen. He is the kind of guy that can run around you or run you over. Most defenses we played would be all over stopping him but he would still make plays. I think he returned six kicks all year and took four of them for touchdowns."
Aubrey is listed at around 6-foot, 160 pounds.
Ryan will major in History or English Literature at CU.
