Despite the recent commitment of Joe Burrow, the Ohio State Buckeyes and head coach Urban Meyer are still heavily in the market for a quarterback. One of the prospects that is on the team’s radar is 4-star prospect Travis Waller out of Servite High School in Anaheim, Ca.
Now once Burrow committed, there were some that thought the Buckeyes’ pursuit of another top 2015 quarterback would be hurt. Well, that’s not the case as Waller himself recently stated.
Recently Waller disclosed that he’s been talking to assistant coach Tom Herman every day, as well as Meyer on a regular basis, too.
“Our relationship is probably one of the best out there right now,” Waller told cleveland.com in a phone interview Thursday. “I talk to Coach Tom Herman every day and Urban Meyer once a week, so it’s pretty good.”
As far as Burrow committing to Columbus as well, that doesn’t phase 247 Sports’ fourth-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the country, as he’s ready to compete if necessary.
“Obviously I am not afraid of competition,” Waller said. “If I have to compete against (Burrow), I have to compete against him. There’s other quarterbacks on the roster that you’d have to compete against anyway, so it’s no big problem to me. They like the attitude of having compete, and that’s one of the main reasons they’re so successful in the Big Ten and why they are a nationally ranked team.”
Waller’s recruitment has really picked up as of late. In addition to the Buckeyes being after his services, the likes of Alabama, Tennessee and Notre Dame, who just offered him the other day, are hot on the pursuit as well.
