Walter Plays Tight End at Iowa Camp

West Branch prep Caleb Walter is hoping to receive scholarship offers from the Big Two in the state of Iowa, or anywhere else for that matter. Walter was at the University of Iowa's skill camp on Saturday and he talks about his recruitment, mountain travel and playing a new position in this post-camp update.

Caleb Walter has always been a quarterback, and rarely does he have to throw a block. On Saturday, all of that changed.

"The coaches at the Iowa camp had me play tight end for the first time. I have a new respect for blocking now." the 2005 Class 1A all-state athlete proclaims. "I think I picked it up fairly well, but it is certainly harder than it looks."

Walter was running the in routes, out routes, y routes, and post routes rather than throwing to a would be receiver. "It is really fun to see it from the other side of things."

After the Iowa camp, he and his family headed for Laramie, Wyoming - the home of the University of Wyoming - for a one-day camp on Sunday afternoon. It's a nine hour drive, but there is more than one thing to look forward to at the end of the ride.

"This will be the first time I have ever seen mountains, so that will be pretty neat." Walter stated. "Also, it will be nice to see the campus and talk to the coaches there."

Wyoming is the only standing Division 1-A offer that Walter currently holds. He continues to hear from Iowa and Iowa State regularly, as well as Northern Iowa, Illinois State, and Purdue. "I just hope that I get an offer from the right school. I will commit if that happens. That being said, I am very happy with the offer from Wyoming, and I think that would be a great place to play as well."

Walter will be attending the University of Iowa week long camp on June 12th and 13th, and will then catch two days at Iowa State's camp on the 14th and 15th.

You can be sure that both schools will be keeping an eye on Walter.
