Though it was touched on a bit on our piece Tuesday morning, Kareem Walker once again reaffirmed his commitment to Ohio State in an interview with Cleveland.com yesterday. This is about the third time in the past month that Walker has attempted to clear the air with his recruitment and state that the Buckeyes remain on top and in the best position to land him. Since his visit to Ann Arbor, Walker has been very positive towards the Buckeyes and is definitely saying the right things.
This is a classic "watch what they do, not what they say" scenario and only time will tell if Walker is being genuine. If things stay on course, Ohio State is looking at potentially the best running back haul in 2016 as we don't expect recent commit Antonio Williams to waiver at all on his commit. Ohio State has two really good ones on board and they're hopeful it'll remain that way over the next few months.

Corley to visit OSU
Donnie Corley made it apparent on Tuesday that he will for sure be taking an official visit to Ohio State at some point this fall. Corley, a wide receiver product from the state of Michigan, has favored the two in-state teams most of his recruitment, but has always had an interest in OSU. Corley is a four-star prospect and the number 19 rated wide receiver in his class, according to 247Sports.
Already having visited Michigan State and Tennessee officially, it looks like the Wolverines and the Buckeyes will have the last shot. At this point, with Ohio State already having Austin Mack in the class and things looking good with Binjimen Victor, it's not set in stone that Corley would be a take if he wanted in the class. The coaching staff may go all in on Victor with the limited spots left for 2016. However, like everyone knows, things can change quickly in the world of recruiting and writing off Corley right now would be stupid. He's a future Big Ten starter and we'll see where things stand between him and the coaching staff after his visit to Columbus takes place.
