Ohio State adds Illinois WR Nolan Baudo as a preferred walk-on

Although walk-ons don’t typically see the field much, the Ohio State football program has done a good job of finding some that do.

This past season wide receiver Xavier Johnson made some huge plays when games counted for the Buckeyes. His touchdowns against Notre Dame and Georgia were extremely important.

The Buckeyes might have found another player to fill that role. Illinois wide receiver Nolan Baudo announced he will join the team in the fall as a preferred walk-on. At 5 feet, 10 inches and 170 pounds, he has slot receiver written all over him.

Baudo comes from the same high school, Marist, as 2023 signee Carnell Tate before he transferred to IMG in Florida. Every year the program sends multiple players to Power Five schools. Their program is one of the best in the Chicagoland area.
