Ohio State's 2018 class appears likely to add another commitment from a quarterback. This one will be a preferred walk-on.

The Buckeyes have offered a preferred walk-on spot to an in-state quarterback out of Cleveland. He's thrilled with the offer.

Daniel Alexander, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound quarterback out of Cleveland St. Ignatius, announced the news on Twitter today.

"Extremely blessed to say I have received a PWO from The Ohio State University!!" he wrote.

Eleven Warriors spoke to Alexander about his offer. He's pretty excited.

"It honestly was surreal," Alexander told Eleven Warriors. "After I got off the phone with Coach Hodges, I took a deep breath and laughed. I’ve dreamed of playing big time football like this my whole life and now I have an opportunity to fulfill that dream. It really is tough to put it into words how special it feels."

Alexander totaled more than 1,500 all-purpose yards and 21 touchdowns after taking over as the starter a little into his final high school season.
