"I was down at Georgia one day and then I was at Tech the next day," Walls said. "Tech is just where my heart was. I felt like that's where I needed to be."

Tech was one of the first schools to begin recruiting Walls earlier this spring.

"They were my second offer," Walls said. "Tech was the only camp I went to last summer.

I've only been to one game at Bobby Dodd, but I went to the (road) games at Auburn and Duke last year. I got a few letters and stuff and then I didn't hear from them for a few months.
