Clemson accepts commitment from LB Colton Walls

Colton Walls, a 6'2 225lb MLB from Latin HS in Charlotte NC, son of former Carolina Panther Wesley Walls, has been offered and committed to Clemson today. He is Clemson's 16th commitment (and first LB) and had official offers from Memphis and Duke, with interest from UNC and Vandy. He was recruited by Dan Pearman with Kevin Steele, who coached for the Panthers while Wesley was in his heyday at TE.

From looking at his film though, I see nothing that would cause me to offer. It is just OK. He does not have great speed (4.7 40), but seems to read his keys properly. His size is good and he has good strength so he gets off blocks fine. Technique in pass drops is average and needs work. I will point out that LB film is tougher to gauge in a few minutes than is lineman film.

There is no one to my knowledge at this HS we are going for that is a bigger name either. 

Walls had 115 tackles and 7 sacks last season as they won the state championship.

We should take 3 or 4 LBs in this class, and 21-23 signees overall, and this one is in my opinion a waste of a scholarship. They could've done better here and this is as bad a take as Adam Humphries.
