Exploring Kenneth Walker III’s age

Some have been curious to know Kenneth Walker III’s age as his ESPN profile does not list how old he is.

Kenneth celebrates his birthday on 20 October. This makes him a Libra. He is not to be confused with the wide receiver Kenneth Walker III, who plays for the Blue Bombers.

According to his Hudl profile, Kenneth’s Junior year in high school was from 2017 to 2018. His Senior year was 2018 to 2019. In December 2018, Kenneth committed to Wake Forest. He was there for two seasons before transferring to MSU earlier this year.

Juniors in high school are, on average, 16 or 17 years old. If Kenneth Walker III turned 17 in October 2017, that means he could have been born in 2000. This would make Kenneth Walker III currently 21 years old.

Kenneth was a freshman at college in October 2019, which would confirm this age.
