Ohio State hosted an awesome list of recruits for the USC game, a group that included several key underclassmen. Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville offensive lineman Aundrey Walker was in attendance after helping Glenville post 57 points in a win over Huber Heights Wayne on Friday night.
"The atmosphere at Ohio State was great," Walker said. "I couldn't believe it, the people, the crowd was really loud. Everything about it, the crowd was awesome."
Walker said his recruitment has yet to take off with Ohio State.

"I haven't heard too much from Ohio State yet, I do talk talk to Coach [Taver] Johnson, but I have not talked to them about an offer. We didn't get to meet Coach [Jim] Tressel at the game, but we did hang out with the other recruits and meet some of the players."
Ohio State has a solid pipeline in Glenville, but Walker was keeping a close eye on the opposition.
"To tell you the truth, I am a USC fan," Walker said. "I was kind of rooting for them. I like Reggie Bush, he was my favorite college player. I just like their team, I like Coach [Pete] Carroll. USC is a good great academic school. I am not sure I am good enough to get recruited by them."
Walker will have his chance to impress schools across the country. He is quickly making a name for himself as one of Ohio's best linemen in the class of 2011. He attended the U.S. Army National Underclassmen Combine last January, and hopes to workout in San Antonio again this winter.
"I would like to hear from Texas, Florida, USC, Ohio State, Alabama, and Georgia," Walker said.
Michigan State has offered Walker, which he said came in writing on September 4th.
"I was really happy about that, but I can't get a big head about that," Walker said. "I am just going to wait to see what other offers I am going to get and find the right school to go to."
Walker will have no issues convincing college coaches that he is big enough to handle college football. He stands at 6-foot-5 and 335 pounds.
"My strengths on the field? I am stronger and I am smarter than most players I go against. My technique is better than most players I go against. I just have that mentality to dog someone, I just want to be a good player."
