What do you with a 6-4, 220 Class C halfback who ran for over 1,300 yards as a junior? How bout try him at tight end. That’s what Harbor Springs senior David Walker did Sunday at Central Michigan’s camp where he showed the tools of a possible Lake Michigan Top 10 player in 2014.
Walker, the son of Harbor coach Rob Walker, ran a 4.6 40 in Mt. Pleasant. Then he caught everything at tight end. He’s a downfield threat who can get yac. They put him on the other side of the ball — Walker’s also a defensive end for the Rams — and he proved really hard to block. Walker has good flow as a running back and it shows rushing the passer too.
Walker’s the kind of lanky but muscular athlete who can typically pack on the pounds without losing steps. If that happens, given his football background as a coach’s son and strong academic profile, the boy from Little Traverse Bay could be another small-town recruiting coup for the MAC.
