TE Walton favors two

It's too early for Columbus (N.J.) North Burlington Regional tight end Boomer Walton to think about making a decision but the talented junior already has two schools at the top of his list.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound tight end is one of the Garden State's top prospects at his position in the Class of 2010, and as such he has attracted attention from a variety of Division I programs.

"I've been hearing more from some schools lately. UConn, Pitt, Iowa, Duke and Virginia have all contacted my school and asked for tape or transcripts," Walton said.

"Tony Wise from Pitt was at my school a few weeks ago and I've been getting a few more letters from Mark Staten from Michigan State recently."

Currently two schools top Walton's list, though neither has offered yet.

"The schools I'm most interested in are Duke and the University of Delaware," he continued. "Those are my top two.

"The other schools I'm very interested in are Maryland, UConn, Syracuse, Pitt and Virginia. I would like to take a look into some Florida schools like USF, UCF and Florida Atlantic as well."

Walton is also a key performer for his high school's basketball team as well, where he was named second team all-conference. He knows his future is on the gridiron, however.

"The recruiting process is about where I expected it to be. I plan on taking my SAT's in May and I hope to get some offers pouring in soon.

"I'm going to try to attend the Syracuse Junior Day on Sunday, but it's a four and a half hour drive and with seven other siblings in my house it might be difficult to make the trip. I'm going to try, though."
