Terrell Walden Commits to UM

Walden has been strongly favoring the Hurricanes all year and yesterday, he decided to make his commitment known to the public. We have the entire interview.

I caught up with UM's most recent commitment on his cell phone after school today.

"Just like I have been telling you all year, I'm going to UM," Walden said. "I committed to them over Florida, North Carolina, and Michigan State."

At 5-foot-11 and 155 pounds, Walden led the county with nine interceptions this season.

"What separates Terrell is his quickness and great instincts. He's just a great all around football player," Miami Edison coach Corey Bell said.

Walden will soon become the third player from Edison over the last five years to sign with the Hurricanes, joining William Joseph and Carlos Joseph.

"It just felt like the best thing I could do," Walden said. "I grew up around them. I love Miami. I'm glad I'm now finally getting the chance."

Walden makes it very clear what he plans to accomplish.

"I'm going to make plays, and make a lot of them," he said. "I'm a playmaker and everyone will soon realize that. I have really only played about 15 games in my career as a cornerback and I got 12 interceptions. I'll try to gain some weight so I can help the defense out right away."

Walden will officially visit UM on Jan 25. Until then, he'll be waiting for the test results to come back. He's sitting at a 14 on the ACT, and he needs a 17 to become qualified.

"I'm very excited," he said. "I'm going to Miami so I can help them win a national championship. I'm hoping we can get a bunch of them."

Personally, this comes as no surprise. Walden has been telling me since October that he plans on signing with UM. It's a dream come true for the talented cornerback, who I think is one of the top 5 overall player in Florida this year. He has Duane Starks written all over him.
