Penn State recruit Jonathan Walton now eyeing other options

Penn State began recruiting Alabama linebacker Jonathan Walton before last season even began. 

Then they offered him a scholarship. 

Then the undervalued recruit (two stars out of five) gave a verbal commitment to the Nittany Lions. 

And now he has backed away. 

As PalmettoSports.com is reporting, the high school senior has de-committed from the Lions as SEC interest closer to home begins to heat up. 

Walton (5-foot-11, 220 pounds) recently returned from a visit from Tennessee with a scholarship offer. South Carolina and now Auburn are also pressing. 

Which could well mean the linebacker prospect, who also is a fullback option, will stay in the South. 

The only other linebackers in this small recruiting class are New Jersey’s Brandon Bell and Harrisburg’s Zayd Issah. 

Some recruiting analysts have commented about Walton’s significant improvement from his junior through his senior football seasons. 
