Notable stats, performance in college
Walker showed decent efficiency during his two seasons starting for Wake Forest but the overall numbers didn’t stand out. He left the program with 1,205 scrimmage yards and 17 touchdowns, figures he would blow out of the water during his 2021 campaign.
Inarguably, Walker’s finest moment came during Michigan State’s upset of archrival Michigan. The star running back turned 23 carries into 197 yards and five touchdowns, just enough to help the Spartans get the edge over the favored Wolverines.
