Sorry if already posted, but 11 Warriors claiming that All-Ohio WR/DB Devlin McDaniel of Pleasant High accepts preferred walk-on offer. Anyone know much about Devlin?
Also link from Buckeye Planet:
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
Still not catching the ever-contagious WHINE-FLU!!!
We have many kids who came in as walk ons and went on to have very good careers. I recall Brian Stablein and Greg smith. Both walk ons and both started. Brian played 8 yrs in NFL. Don't sell these guys short by relegating them to scout team!!
Meyer is killing it with the walk-ons. Think about it, guys like Berger, Houston, and McDaniel are choosing to PAY to be a Buckeye versus having their education paid for at other schools. We are getting MAC-level or better players without having to give up a scholarship. Do not underestimate the value of having walk-ons of this caliber - could easily be the next Antonio Smith or Nate Ebner.
I have coached Dev for the past two years. I will be the first to tell you, he IS a GREAT athlete and an even better kid. Eastern Michigan offered after his breakout Junior season. BG, Louisville, Air Force and Wisconsin all expressed a ton of interest in the kid. Wisky also offered him a preferred Walk-On spot.
He has good straight line speed (ran 4.51 at OSU camp this summer) and his ball skills are off the charts. I know I may be a little biased, but I honestly believe that he could develop into a Taylor Rice kind of player for the buckeyes. We all know Rice played a huge part on special teams this year.
I always joked with him about Bradley Roby locking him down when he gets to OSU haha, but he is extremely confident in his abilities and will battle with the best of them!
I'm definitely proud of the kid and know that he will be a great addition to the Buckeyes!
