Four-Star OT Rasheed Walker Commits To Penn State On National Signing Day

Waldorf, Md., offensive tackle Rasheed Walker became the fourth lineman pledge in Penn State’s 2018 recruiting class on National Signing Day.

The four-star North Point High standout is considered the nation’s third-ranked tackle prospect this cycle and the third-best recruit in Maryland, according to 247Sports. He joins four-stars Nana Asiedu and Fredrick Scruggs and three-star Bryce Effner as the next crop of offensive linemen to pick Penn State as their future school. Position coach Matt Limegrover was his primary recruiter of record.

Walker last visited campus for an official visit in December with the recruits who signed at the cycle’s first Early Signing Day. Most recently, he received a visit from James Franklin on Feb. 1. He picked the Nittany Lions over 26 other offers from the likes of Ohio State, Michigan, Virginia Tech, and his home-state Terrapins. Penn State had been a favorite for the most of Walker’s recruitment, but the Buckeyes made a late push for him.

Last summer, he participated in Nike’s The Opening alongside signees Ricky Slade and Justin Shorter.

Walker, who stands 6-foot-5, 280 pounds, boosts Penn State’s 2018 recruiting class to 24 members — good for No. 4 in all of college football. You can check out his Hudl highlight reel right here.
