Caleb Walter Seeing Interest

While names like Colin Sandeman, Jordan Bernstine and Tyler Sash are well known across Iowa in the Class of 07', the theme of the overall class could be the small town star. One small town prospect whose star might be shining most brightly is West Branch, Iowa quarterback/athlete Caleb Walter.

"I've attended Junior Days at Iowa, Iowa State, and Wisconsin," said Walter, who stands at 6-foot-4, 200-pounds. "I've also received interest from Stanford, who would like for me to come out and visit sometime."

In 11 games last season, Walter completed 101 of 172 pass attempts for 1625 yards, 20 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He also ran for 534 yards on 94 rush attempts.

Even with that production, Walter has been projected at other positions.

"Iowa and Wisconsin are recruiting me as an athlete, and Iowa State has told me they will start me out at quarterback, but if that doesn't work I can play elsewhere," Walter stated.

Walter had good things to say about each school he has visited, thus far.

IOWA"I grew up a Hawkeye fan having lived in West Branch my entire life. I really like the coaches there, and Coach (Reese) Morgan told me if I have a good camp I have a pretty good chance of earning an offer. They like that I'm a hard-worker, and have a lot of versatility in that I can play a lot of different positions."

ISU"There was a perception that Cyclone fans weren't as passionate about their football, but after I visited there, I know they are excited about their team as any school. They have a young, energetic coaching staff. Their quarterback coach just wants to see me throw in camp before deciding whether to offer."

WISCONSIN"Wisconsin has a good coaching staff, too; I felt I could relate well with them. They seem to treat their players well. Coach (Bret) Bielema and I spoke on the phone, and he told me he thought I looked real athletic on film. He told me he thought I had the chance to be a scholarship athlete, and they just want to see me in camp," Walter concluded.

Walter will attend one day camps at Iowa, Iowa State, and Wisconsin with the possibility of attending an extra day at Iowa.

Walter will also attend the All-American Combine in Iowa City, Iowa on April 22nd.
