Walter is the son of former longtime Bengals offensive lineman Joe Walter.
Jake Walter was one of three signees that Xavier announced Nov. 20, 2017.
"Jake Walter is a local product at one of the top high school programs in the state of Kentucky, Covington Catholic,” then-Xavier coach Chris Mack said in November. “Jake brings great size, toughness and a skill level for his position that makes his teammates better. The improvement that he's made over the last four years is remarkable and I'm anxious to watch that same development at Xavier.”
Xavier opens the 2018-19 season Nov. 6 against Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) at Cintas Center.
