Three-star Florida defensive tackle has KU in top 10

The Jayhawks make the cut with a big-time defensive tackle from Bradenton, Florida.

The Jayhawks are already making waves with their impressive group of 2018 commits, and are looking to continue to build on that momentum.

Just a few days ago, they made the cut with IMG Academy (FL) defensive tackle Josh Walker, a three-star beast who is sitting at nearly 30 total offers.

That's both an impressive and diverse list of schools to be competing against for the services of Walker, a 6-foot, 290 pound defensive tackle.

The official Scout analysis on Walker's game:

"Walker plays hard. He is a fierce competitor with a non-stop motor. He gets in and out of his stance well. He plays out of the four-point stance and he fires off the ball low. He shoots his hands, he plays with good leverage, and he is good at shedding blocks. He identifies the ball and he attacks. He has good quickness, he can re-direct and he chases the football. He is not the tallest interior defensive lineman, but he uses that to his advantage. He can improve his moves off the ball and his ability to rush the passer. He is very strong against the run."
