As a Recruit
Jalon Walker prides himself as being a student-athlete first and foremost. Off the football field, Walker carries a 4.0 grade-point average and has been honored multiple times for his scholastic achievement. Along with success in football, Walker plays basketball and competes in track and field. He ran an 11.94-second 100-meter dash in spring of 2021 – at 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds. Walker plans on being an orthodontist when he’s done playing football. “That’s my plan,” Walker told DawgNation. “Knock as many teeth out as I can and live through that and tell a new story another day about putting one of those guy’s teeth back in for him. That’s the dream.” Walker job shadowed dentists and orthodontists in his community throughout high school.
