Coach Speak: What Ohio State Is Getting In Miles Walker

Ohio State got another “BOOM” on Friday morning as Brunswick (CT) 2023 offensive lineman Miles Walker committed to Ohio State over Texas A&M, Penn State, and others.

Other than having the information that Walker is a 6-foot-6, 275-pounder who is somewhat of a later bloomer, Buckeye Nation doesn’t know a ton about their newest pledge. Who better to shine light on what OSU is getting other than Brunswick head coach Wayne McGillicuddy?

Buckeye Scoop caught up with McGillicuddy to not only learn about Miles Walker on the field, but also what he’ll bring off the field and what kind of fit he is with the Ohio State program.

On His “On-Field” Strengths: “His work ethic. His love for the game and the weight room. He is a true student of the game and is always trying to get better.”

On His Ceiling As A Prospect: “Honestly, his ceiling is as high as he wants it to be. He has all of the measurables as well as the work ethic and determination. I am excited to see him continue to grow and develop.”

Off The Field: “He is a quiet kid that works his tail off. He’s a very close to the vest type of kid. He always says to me that actions speak louder than words. He loves the weight room and fueling his body the right way. He loves watching film and is always working on his game. All of this will help him at the next level.”

On Fit At Ohio State: “I think OSU will be a great fit for him for multiple reasons. The way they/Coach Frye develop offensive linemen will put him in a great position. After visiting campus in June, it left a lasting impression and he felt like it would be the right place academically, athletically, and socially.”
