The Yellow Jackets are continuing their success on the recruiting front particularly in the Peach State landing Dawsonville (Ga.) Dawson County defensive tackle Logan Walls. The 6-foot-2, 272-pounder chose Georgia Tech over offers from rival Georgia as well as Clemson, Kentucky, Arkansas, Auburn, Louisville and more.
"In the end it came down to Georgia Tech and Georgia and I felt like Georgia Tech was where my heart was at," he said. "I talked to coach Smith, Kelly and Gailey on Tuesday to give them the good news. They were all very happy and coach Smith even told me that he can finally get a good nights sleep."
The three-star prospect picked the Yellow Jackets for a few reasons.
"First and foremost I have a really good relationship with the coaches," he said. "I feel like I'll be able to work with coach Smith and the rest of the staff really well. I also felt very comfortable with all of them. I felt like they were always telling me the truth.
"On top of that, I really like the players there. I got along really well with Michael Johnson and he told me good things about the school. Finally, I like the school a lot and the opportunity to be right in Atlanta. It's nice to be around a variety of cultures."
Walls is glad to have his decision behind him.
"I wanted to get it out of the way before the season and it feels good and relieving to have it done," he said. "Now I can really focus on helping my team and working on my hands and feet some more."
Last season the No. 22 player in the Peach State registered 87 tackles, 17 for loss, seven sacks and five deflections.
