It is very rare for college coaches to get pure offensive centers out of high school. More often than not coaches move a recruited guard over and they become the man in the middle. So, if you can pick up a true center through recruiting only good things can happen.
One of the better center prospects in the state of Texas is Allen, Texas center J.D. Walton and he has many options.
“Things are going good right now,” said the 6-foot-2, 288-pound Walton. “I got calls tonight from Colorado State and Iowa State. They were trying to get me to set up official visits but I haven’t set any, yet.”
Recently, Walton was able to narrow things down a little bit to just three schools, but that did not last too long as his top three is now a top five.
“I really like Arizona State, Utah and SMU a lot,” he said. “Iowa State and Colorado State are both moving up there though. I am liking both of those schools a lot more. That would kind of be my top five, I guess.”
Walton doesn’t know when he will commit but he knows what he wants in a school.
“I just want to feel comfortable with the program, with the coaches and players,” he said. “I also want to be able to make a difference in the program. As far as when I will decide I don’t really know. I mean, I am always going back and forth between committing early and waiting and I just don’t know. My parents just want me to be happy and comfortable with my decision so taking my time is no big deal.”
Walton also clued us in to how his Allen team is doing so far.
“We are 2-0 so far,” he said. “We won 31-13 and then we won 49-6.”
