High school powerhouse Booker T. Washington sophomore sensation of a running back, Mark Walton, orally committed to the Hurricanes on September 29th marking the effectiveness of the “Golden rule” recruiting process apparent.
It’s obvious coach Al Golden is beyond the rebuilding stage and has now entered the reloading stage in terms of recruiting. Walton’s the second Miami commitment of the 2016 class joining Cocoa’s defensive back, Chauncey Gardner. To get a pinpoint thought of why Walton committed so early – He explained to Caneinsider that ”growing up I wanted to be a Hurricane. I knew it was where I wanted to go when I was first offered. I talk with my mom the other day about it and she said ‘let everybody know if that’s where you want to go.’ So I did.”
Walton is an instinctive running back equipped with a quickness and a swiftness that separates him from other running backs in his class. Making the oral intent from him all the more meaningful for Al Golden and company.
“Yesterday, I spoke with Coach Barrow, Coach Coley, and the coaching staff letting them know I made the decision to officially become a Hurricane.”
Walton joins already committed teammates Nigel Bethel (CB), Demetrius Jackson (DE) and Chad Thomas (DE) at Miami. His verbal solidifies the fact that Miami is making strides to obtain any and all talent in the area. The luxury of looking around their background and hand picking top notch football talent; is something the Hurricanes are clearly tapping into.
Walton choose Miami over Florida State and West Virginia.
