Get to know Greenwich (Conn.) Brunswick School three-star offensive tackle Miles Walker, who signed his national letter of intent with Ohio State on Wednesday.
Height, Weight: 6-6, 285.
247 Composite Rankings: He’s rated as the 485th overall prospect, 34th-best offensive tackle and the No. 4 recruit out of Connecticut.
Commitment Date: Walker committed to Ohio State on July 8.
Other Offers: Boston College, Buffalo, Connecticut, Duke, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Temple, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, West Virginia.
How he did in high school: Walker’s Brunswick squad finished with a 9-1 record this season and a 33-21 win over Choate Rosemary Hall School in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council Mike Silipo Bowl. He manned up left tackle for the Bruins, helping block for a rushing offense that totaled 1,718 rushing yards and 22 rushing touchdowns on the season.
He was named NEPSAC Lineman of the Year and earned first-team Class-A All-NEPSAC honors in his senior season.
Why he committed to Ohio State: Walker’s recruitment was a rapid one, with his first offer coming from UMass last September before Power Five offers starting rolling in over the winter and spring. Ohio State eventually offered Walker on May 27, and he was on campus for an official visit on June 10, where his choice for a college became clear.
“When I first got there, the whole vibe felt right,” Walker told 247Sports. “I wasn’t expecting Columbus to be how it was, and this was where I wanted to be. And getting to know some of the players and just seeing how they interact, it was really good to see that in real time. It made me feel like I was at home.”
Where he fits in for 2023: Ohio State could be looking for some additional depth at offensive tackle next season with Paris Johnson Jr. and Dawand Jones off to the NFL, but Walker is still likely a year away from being able to contribute to Ohio State’s two-deep.
