    ODD MAN OUT?

    Waldorf, Maryland, North Point four-star offensive tackle Rasheed Walker also narrowed things down on Wednesday night, including Ohio State in his Top 6 alongside Maryland, North Carolina, Penn State, Rutgers and Virginia Tech.

    The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Walker is considered the 17th-best offensive tackle and No. 201 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He visited campus for the first time in late March.

    Wih Tennessee four-star offensive tackle Max Wray already in the the fold, Walker's possible commitment will hinge upon Fairfield five-star Jackson Carman. Ohio State is the presumed leader despite Carman's interest in Clemson, and if he chooses to stay home, it's hard to see a spot for Walker in the class.

    I'd love to have a third It in this class to go along with Wright and Carmen and this one is a legit possibility.

    THERE'S A GLIMMER OF HOPE

    In late April, Waldorf, Maryland, North Point four-star offensive tackle Rasheed Walker narrowed down his list of nearly 30 scholarship offers to Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers and Virginia Tech. And though the Nittany Lions remain the overwhelming favorite to land his pledge, he remains fairly interested in the Buckeyes, as well.

    “We talk a lot. Like every day or every other day,” Walker told Eleven Warriors, noting offensive line coach Greg Studrawa and defensive line coach Larry Johnson are his main recruiters. "They're one of the first schools to recruit me early on. I just have a real good relationship with them. I've been able to get down there a couple of times and I really like what I saw.”

    The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Walker has been to campus several times, most recently in late March.

    "I just get good vibes every time I go down there,” Walker said. “I haven't gotten to go down there as many times as I would really want to because of how far it is from my house — about eight, nine hours. But the times I've been down there, I've enjoyed myself and had a real, real good time.”

    Ohio State already holds a commitment from Tennessee four-star Max Wray and remains the favorite to land Fairfield five-star Jackson Carman, so it's uncertain how Walker may fit into the Buckeyes' plans. He hopes to make it back to campus for Friday Night Lights to spend time with coaches and get a better understanding of that before he makes a decision.

    Walker has no timetable for that, however.

    “It could be soon, it could be in a long time,” he said.

    Rasheed Walker a name to watch?

    Maryland’s Rasheed Walker is a player who may be worth watching a bit more closely for Ohio State fans.

    The Waldorf (Md.) North Point High offensive tackle is the country’s 11th-ranked player at his position for 2018. And though his 247Sports.com crystal ball is entirely slanted toward Penn State, there was substantial scuttlebutt in Oregon that the Buckeyes are slowly but surely moving into a good position to land him. He is a player Ohio State likes and has been staying in contact with.

    Walker will be at Penn State on July 15 for the Lasch Bash and the question after that is will he return to Ohio State for Friday Night Lights on July 21 before he goes to Virginia Tech the next day? He has been to campus in Columbus a handful of times already and if the school was a bit closer to his home, he would have been back more than that.

    There is no announcement date planned, but after talking to folks in Oregon and checking in with sources close to the Buckeyes, Walker is worth monitoring moving forward.

    Rasheed Walker flashing Buckeyes gloves

    While one of the Buckeyes’ top offensive line targets is using Ohio State as safety net, another — Maryland’s Rasheed Walker — is giving some hints that he may be more into them than people believe.

    Walker, the country’s No. 11-ranked offensive tackle, donned some Buckeyes apparel on Thursday night as his North Point (Waldorf, Md.) team took on Calvert.

    Walker is a player I’ve included in my “class projections” for Ohio State in both August and September, and I’m sticking with that for now, though his glove choice has little to do with that. Penn State is the biggest threat, and there’s plenty of time for the Nittany Lions to make him a priority. He’s been there more than anyone else.

    The Buckeyes will host Walker on Oct. 28.
