The nation's top cornerback Darrin Walls recently announced his top seven which included Pittsburgh, Michigan, Penn State, Florida, Notre Dame, USC and West Virginia. Who is the prospect looking to take official visits to from the list?
"I talked with coach Addazio at Florida recently about which day I'll come down for an official visit," he said. "I think I'm probably going to the Tennessee game for them. When I go to Florida, I'm going to be doing a lot more than at the other schools. I've got to check out the academics and take a tour, but mostly I'll be looking at the game experience and atmosphere.
"I'll probably visit Notre Dame and Michigan with two of the other visits because those are my top three schools right now. From the visits, I'll have more of an idea of what the school is like and how game days are."
Who is the 6-foot-0, 172-pounder with 4.4-second speed looking at for the last two visits?
"The last two spots are between USC, Penn State and West Virginia."
The No. 24 player in the country just started practice with Woodland Hills for his senior year.
"We practice Tuesday and Thursday and then lift Monday, Wednesday and Friday," he said. "It's been nice as long as it doesn't get much hotter. The only big change this year is that I'm going to be on offense more. I really like that because last year I thought I could do more on offense and this year I'll be able to because I'll be playing there. Overall, our team is looking really good. We've got nine or ten guys coming back on defense and a new quarterback, we just need more work with our wide receivers and quarterback and we'll be pretty good."
"The thing I'm looking to work on most is my man coverage. I'll see a lot of that no matter which school I go to and I want to prepare myself even more for it."
With Walls intent to take his officials early in the season, when is the five-star prospect planning to commit?
"I'm hoping my officials make my decision for me," he said. "If I feel most comfortable with a school then it'll probably be at the beginning or middle of the season. I want to get it out of the way pretty early."
The No. 2 player in Pennsylvania was named first team all-conference and first team all-Class AAAA as he accounted for 575 yards of offense and eight touchdowns. He added 67 tackles, six interceptions and 16 pass breakups.
Walls is also a solid student with an impressive 3.4 GPA and 1020 SAT.
