Walker is bound for the Big Sky

One of the more talented tight ends in the California JUCO ranks this past season was American River's Brad Walker (6-3, 245). He put up big numbers as a sophomore and one D-1AA school will be the beneficiary of his skills in the 2008 football season.

"I'm really happy," an excited Walker told JCFootball.com recently. "I committed to Idaho State back after my official visit there on December 7th and it was just a great feeling to know my school will be paid for and I can continue playing the game I love to play."

Walker has excellent speed for a man his dimensions -- posting a 4.8 forty time -- and he put up big numbers for American River this past season posting 25 catches for 345 yards and six touchdowns.

"I'm at my best catching the ball, but I'm an all-around tight end," Walker said. "I block really well and that's the way our coaches used me this year.

"Idaho State's coaches use their tight ends in motion and ask them to block on the move or to get into their pass-routes quickly and that's really what I do best."

Walker will spend the New Year holiday with his family and then head to Pocatello, Idaho to begin his career with the Bengals on January 4th with three years to play two when he steps on campus.
