Logan Walls has become the 10th player to commit to Georgia Tech for the Class of 2007. It's been a huge recruiting week for the Yellow Jackets. Earlier in the week the Jackets added highly-touted prospects Willie White and Roddy Jones. And now with the addition to Walls, there is some top talent added to the defensive line.

"I was going to wait to announce at 5 but I'll say it, I'm going to Tech," said Walls when GoJackets.com called him up on Sunday afternoon.

Logan's heart was with the Jackets and he'll be joining up with some other good friends of his.

"Tech is just where my heart was, I guess whenever I went there," said Walls. "I was really close to the coaches and a bunch of the players and a bunch of my friends signed with them or have committed to Tech already."

A lot of the names Walls talked about are well known names to Yellow Jacket fans.

"I'm pretty close to Kyle [Jackson]," said Walls. "I've talked to Willie [White] a few times and then Roddy [Jones]. I'm talking to Nick [Claytor] a little bit too, trying to talk him into it but I'm not sure about him. And [Jonathan] Dwyer."

Walls, who will play defensive tackle for Tech, felt supported by others when he worked out at Tech.

"I really like the atmosphere down there," said Walls. "When I did the camp down there the guys all came out and watched me do the workouts and stuff. So I really liked that… supported."

There has been talk about Logan possibly taking a mission trip at some time before or during his time in college. Though he hasn't decided whether or not he'll do that, he has to full support of Coach Chan Gailey if he does decide to go in that direction.

"Coach [Chan] Gailey told me he totally supports that, so if I choose to go, he said he'd support me in it," said Walls. Logan said he'd decide on that, "Just whenever I feel like the time is right."

Walls said it wasn't difficult dealing with the coaches of Tech and Georgia when trying to pick between the two bitter rivals.

"It wasn't hard talking to them it was just hard choosing between them," said Walls.

In a football rich state like Georgia, many people feel free to offer their advice to Walls.

"Yeah, both sides have been working me pretty good," said Walls.

Logan said that the fans have been on him more than other recruits.

"It's kind of like more people talk to me now," said Walls. "I don't really get approached a lot in public. So that doesn't happen, which is pretty good. There are some guys on my team who are like; ‘Go to Tech' and others are like ‘Go to Georgia'. I felt comfortable at Georgia but, I don't know, it's just… my brother is going to be at Tech plus I was real comfortable with Tech and the coaches."

Besides Coach Gailey, Logan has gotten to know a couple of other Tech coaches well.

"I talked to Coach [Giff] Smith and Coach [Charles] Kelly all the time. I have a really good relationship with them," said Walls.
