Illinois RB/DB Has Five Offers
Walter Mendenhall, a 6-foot, 190-pound, running back/safety from Skokie (Ill.) Niles West is one of the "Top 30" prospects in the Land of Lincoln. "I have offers from Northern Illinois, Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue and Colorado." Mendenhall said. "I don't have a leader right now. I want to take my visits and see what happens during the season." Walter rushed for 1,193 yards as a junior and averaged 8.3 yards per carry. However, he projects as a safety at the next level. Walter's younger brother, Rashard Mendenhall, will be one of the top junior prospects in the nation in 2003. Rashard averaged over 11 yards per carry as a sophomore and runs a 10.5 100-meter dash. Walter and Rashard Mendenhall say they aren't a package deal but would like to attend the same college.
