Ohio RB Will Camp At Duke

Want a sleeper to track? Cleveland Rhodes junior Lakeith Walls may be your guy. The silky smooth track star has his first offer, and his ability to play multiple positions should bring about even more.

Rhodes High School in Cleveland may not be one of the immediately noticeable programs in the city, but there is a nice collection of athletes there lead by running back and linebacker Lakeith Walls.

The 6'4 Wells moved in from Toledo and immediately became one of the team's standouts. This week, he earned his first scholarship offer.

"I went to the Akron camp in the summer and they were interested," he explained. "Yesterday, I went on a visit and they offered me. It felt good. I didn't know what to say. I mean, I guess it was kind of a shock since I just moved to Cleveland, and I wasn't playing football my freshman year."

The Zips are glad he picked it back up and so are the host of teams still recruiting Walls. With his frame and ability to project to multiple positions, he is an intriguing prospect who remains on the board for several big time programs.

"I've heard from Wisconsin, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Duke, Northwestern, West Virginia and Miami (Ohio), Toledo, Michigan, Indiana, and Kent State."

Walls says he is being recruited by these schools as a running back, outside linebacker and safety. Currently in track, he is planning on taking more visits soon.

"I visited Akron and Kent State. I'm going to go up to North Carolina in the summer time to visit Duke and Kentucky. They sent me mail recently and want me to come for their Blue Lights camp this summer."
