Latin's Walls, son of former Panther, commits to Clemson

Charlotte Latin linebacker Colton Walls has committed to Clemson, his father, Wesley, told the Observer.

Wesley Walls is a former Carolina Panthers tight end who played 14 seasons in the NFL.

Colton Walls, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior, had 116 tackles, seven sacks and one interception last season after moving from defensive end to middle linebacker. He helped Latin win its fourth state title in the past five seasons.

In the state final win over Charlotte Christian, Walls had a sack, an interception and a blocked punt.

“(Colton) has been around the game his entire life and you can tell,” Latin coach Larry McNulty said. “He plays with an intensity that you don’t see that much in high school players. He is already very strong and explosive, but I only think he is going to get better and better.”

This happened over a month ago. You and The Herald in Rock Hill are a joke of a newspaper.

Ok. Yeah, Jacob beat me to it, but I thought he committed a few weeks ago. Nonetheless, welcome to the Clemson family Mr. Walls and good luck.
