The Boston College Eagles got two commitments in one day on Monday as tight end Ryan Purvis and another top target both pledged.
"I committed to BC," said 6-foot-2, 239-pound linebacker Tom Walls from West Deptford, N.J. "I had liked BC for a long time now, but I didn't want to make a decision based on the emotions from my official visit. I decided to wait a little while, play my season, and then come back to it.
"I talked it over with my parents last night and decided it was time. BC has everything I want in a school -- great academics, nice people and a chance to play early."
Walls will be a middle linebacker for the Eagles. He has more than 100 tackles so far this season in leading his team to an 8-0 record. On offense, he has 1,070 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns.
"I'm happy it's over," said Walls, who chose BC over offers from Iowa, Maryland and more than a dozen others. "This is what I wanted and I have a great opportunity at BC."
