Highlights and Evaluation: UCLA OT Target Walker Little

Feb. 18 -- Scout provides junior highlights and a recent evaluation of 2017 top 100 offensive tackle prospect Walker Little, who UCLA offered last week...

The above video features junior season highlights of 2017 four-star offensive tackle Walker Little from Episcopal High School in the Houston area.

Little is the top-ranked offensive tackle in the state of Texas' 2017 class. That puts him at No. 9 nationally among offensive tackles, as well as No. 65 overall in the 2017 Scout 300.

At 6-foot-7 and 300-plus pounds, Little has a prototype tackle frame with enough space on it to add even more bulk. He's garnered a slew of major offers from across the country, including AlabamaBaylorMississippiStanfordTexas A&MTexasArkansasAuburnOklahomaTCUTennessee, and UCLA, among many others.

Little possesses elite size for the tackle position, but also displays the lateral mobility and quickness that is rare for a player of such mass, thus making him the highly-coveted prospect that he is.

Below is Scout's updated analysis of Little:

Little is an elite offensive tackle prospect who will have extensive high school starting experience once he reaches the Power Five conference level. Great size. Possesses height and length to add even more weight in college. Prototype offensive tackle build. Aggressive run-blocker who finishes his blocks. Plays through whistle. Impressive balance and foot quickness. Usually shows good knee-bend, but at times huge frame can compromise leverage/pad level. Must be ready to acclimate to a significant jump in competition going from private school football in Texas (a state ruled by public schools) to Power Five college level. Possesses very high ceiling as pass protector. Little is one of the nation's top offensive tackle prospects for the 2017 recruiting cycle. -Gabe Brooks

  • Strengths: Size, body control and balance, drive-blocking skills
  • Areas to improve: Technique

Little is 1 of 2 prospects for Episcopal High School to be ranked as the top prospect at his position in the Lone Star State. The other is Marvin Wilson, who is Scout's No. 1 defensive tackle in the country.
