Buckeyes offer current South Carolina pledge
When Urban Meyer ran things for the Ohio State Buckeyes football program, his coaching staff didn’t have a problem going after talented high school prospects who were verbally committed to play elsewhere. From the looks of things, Ryan Day and the new look Bucks won’t either.
Always trying to locate the best of the best to bring into the fold, Day and company decided to throw their hat in the ring for current South Carolina pledge Issiah Walker Jr. late last week.
“The offer came out of nowhere,” the 6-foot-4, 284-pound Miami Norland High School (FL) junior stated to Land-Grant Holy Land.
“The offensive line coach (Greg Studrawa) said he loved my film and he would love to get up there,” Walker went on to add on how his offer from the Big Ten power went down on Thursday afternoon.
While Walker, who has been committed to South Carolina for nearly a year, has been verbally off the board, his chance to line up in the Scarlet and Gray is leaving him a lot to think over before he finally puts pen to paper and officially signs his National Letter of Intent with the college of his choice next year.
“It definitely impacts it a little bit,” said Walker. “(When I think of Ohio State football) I think of the coaching and how many players they put in the combine.”
One of the top lineman recruits in the junior class, Walker currently comes in as the 15th offensive tackle and 172nd overall prospect in the class of 2020, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

- St. John Bosco (CA) class of 2020 three-star outside linebacker Kourt Williams told SB Nation Recruiting that Ohio State, Oregon, USC, and UCLA are “showing love” his way.
- SB Nation Recruiting also caught up with fellow St. John Bosco (CA) standout and 2021 four-star wide out Beaux Collins during the All-America Game camp held in Los Angeles on Sunday. With nearly 20 scholarship offers currently on the table, the 6-foot-4, 195-pound sophomore stated—like his high school teammate Kourt Williams—that “Ohio State is showing the most love” in his recruitment at the moment.
