2025 Georgia LB Mantrez Walker Making Unofficial Visit to Penn State in January

The focus in college football right now may be on the transfer portal officially opening up today, but college recruiting is often a marathon, not a race.

Penn State’s coaching staff, as such, is still recruiting the classes of 2024 and 2025, and a 2025 Georgia linebacker will be making a visit to State College in January.

Mantrez Walker, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound linebacker from Buford High in Buford, Georgia, will be making an unofficial visit to Penn State on January 14.

The 2025 recruiting class is still some ways away, with no commitments in the class yet, but the first 2025 recruits are beginning to commit across the country.

Penn State offered Walker on Nov. 30, joining a list of schools that includes Arkansas, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, LSU, Ohio, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCF and Virginia Tech.

In Walker’s Twitter post showcasing the offer, which came from director of player personnel Kenny Sanders and recruiting coordinator Alan Zemaitis, he called Penn State one of his dream schools.

Walker helped Buford to an 11-1 season, making it to the second round of the Georgia Class-7A state playoffs.

Neither 247Sports nor Rivals have ranked Walker yet, but it is likely that he will be one of the top-ranked recruits in the class of 2025. An early unofficial visit to Penn State is a good sign of a blooming relationship.
