5-star lineman Walker Little picks Stanford over Texas

Posted December 16th, 2016


Bellaire Episcopal 5-star offensive lineman Walker Little announced he will be attending Stanford next fall on Friday.

Little is rated the fourth-best offensive tackle in the nation by 247 Sports and the 18th-best recruit in the nation. A gigantic player, Little is 6-foot-8-inches tall and 305 pounds. He is the fourth-rated player in the state of Texas, per 247 Sports.

Texas and its new coaching staff visited with Little and his family on Dec. 7, but it wasn’t as if the program was behind on his recruiting. The previous coaching staff was also pursuing Little. The offensive lineman is just one of two highly-prized players from Bellaire Episcopal. The No. 3-rated player in the class, Marvin Wilson, is a 6-foot-4-inch, 329 pound defensive tackle and the No. 1 player in the state of Texas.
