    WORKED WELL IN THE PAST

    Ohio State went to Hinesville, Georgia, Liberty County and landed five-star linebacker Raekwon McMillan back in 2014 and then made significant strides with five-star safety Richard LeCounte III before he picked the in-state Bulldogs last year. It should come as no surprise, then, that the Buckeyes have gone back to the well and offered a scholarship to three-star defensive tackle Tramel Walthour.

    The 6-foot-4, 277-pound Walthour is considered the No. 67 defensive tackle and No. 895 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, as he racked up 65 tackles, 14 tackles for a loss and three sacks for the Panthers last season. He currently holds 13 offers but is starting to see his recruitment take off with Auburn, Arkansas and Georgia also offering within the last week.

    The Bulldogs, of course, instantly became the favorite, but the Buckeyes are hoping their relationship with Liberty County's staff will be enough to get him to a camp this summer. His ranking is bound to skyrocket in the next few months, and being able to evaluate him in person and show him around campus could certainly make things interesting.

    2018 defensive tackle interested to learn more about the Buckeyes

    Earlier this week we talked about 2018 defensive tackle Tramel Walthour, a fast-rising 3-star prospect from Hinesville (Ga.). Ohio State offered Walthour sight unseen on Tuesday, days after he received an offer from his “dream school,” Georgia. The Buckeyes offer came the same day that Auburn and Arkansas also came through with scholarship opportunities for him.

    “I had a pretty good day,” Walthour told Land of 10 about that afternoon. “It means a lot to me knowing that the top schools in the nation want me to come play for their team. It’s really exciting and a real blessing.”

    Though former Ohio State linebacker Raekwon McMillan and current Georgia freshman Richard LeCounte III played ball at Liberty County, where Walthour plays, he says he’s not that familiar yet with the Buckeyes. He hopes to change that soon.

    “I don’t know that much about Ohio State,” he said. “I’m planning on getting to know them a little bit better.

    “It was really cool to be able to talk to Urban Meyer.To have him tell me himself that he likes me, that he feels I can play (at Ohio State). That was really cool. My coach and I are going up there this summer.”

    What is it about his game that has Meyer and Larry Johnson Sr. interested in the 6-foot-4, 275-pound tackle?

    “They told me that off of film, I’m a good run stopper and I have good feet,” Walthour said. “They think I can get after the quarterback on the pass rush, too. They also said they like my frame and size.”
