Personal Life

Kenneth Walker III’s road from Tennessee high schooler to Heisman Trophy candidate is not a traditional path. He was an All-State back for Arlington (Tenn.) High as a senior but earned only three FBS offers: Arkansas State, Kent State and Wake Forest. He was the No. 1874 overall recruit in the 2019 On3 Consensus. Walker finished second on the team in rushing as a freshman and was a starter as a sophomore for Wake Forest. He transferred from Wake Forest to Michigan State after the 2020 season and arrived in East Lansing in the spring of 2021. He left Wake Forest because he found the offensive system to not be a good fit. He is the son of Kenneth Walker Jr. and Shaunteshia Brown. He is majoring in communications at Michigan State.
