Donald Trump is in position to win the endorsement of a former Heisman Trophy winner who said he knows it could be an unpopular move.
Herschel Walker, the former running back who played for the New Jersey Generals of the now-defunct USFL when Trump owned the team, said he likes what he has seen from Trump during the billionaire's polarizing presidential campaign.
"There's not a doubt in my mind right now he is my frontrunner," Walker told USA TODAY Sports. "I'm not going to say anything negative about him because it's not true."
Walker said he supports Trump's idea of building a wall between the U.S.-Mexico border, but does not agree with Trump's most controversial position: deporting the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.
