Over a dozen offers are in for North Point (Md.) four-star offensive tackle Rasheed Walker. But on Thursday night, Walker announced only six schools are still under consideration.
Walker, No. 209 in the Rivals250, announced via Twitter that he has a top six of Virginia tech, Ohio State, Penn State, North Carolina, Rutgers and Maryland. He’s been to all six schools at some point this spring for visits, but now he’s trying to decide what his next move will be.
“The main thing I’m looking for in a school is somewhere that feels like home,” Walker said. “It’s if I get a good feeling, somewhere I can play at and get to get on the field. I just know when I have that feeling, when I go to the right place.”
Walker last visited Virginia Tech two weeks ago, for one of the Hokies’ spring practices. The trip was his second to Blacksburg.
“I’ve also been talking to them, the offensive line coach, Coach (Vance) Vice for a minute,” Walker said. “The first time I got there was sometime early March or late February. I got there and I liked the campus. I got to talk to some players and I just got a real good feeling around there. I liked what I saw, also. When I went to practice, I saw how they practice how my high school does, so I can adjust easily. I saw how the coaches coach and it was just what I expected.”
Assistant coach Galen Scott has also been in touch. But for Walker, it’s Vice whom he’s especially become close with.
“I talk to them a lot,” Walker said. “Coach Vice is a real cool dude. I saw him the other day and he’s cool. He just seems like a real person. Coach Scott is cool and he’s funny. When we talk, it’s not always about football, we just talk.”
Most recently, Walker visited nearby Maryland for a spring practice last week. Three weeks ago, Walker visited Ohio State. He broke down each of his finalists, aside from Virginia Tech, below:
