Rebels in the lead for star linebacker?

Marlon Walls (LB, Olive Branch, MS) -'s #14 nationally rated strong side linebacker had plans to visit Tennessee's campus for the first time this past weekend.

How did his visit go?

"I could not make it to Tennessee last weekend," added Marlon Walls. "We started school this week so I had to push the visit back. I will probably go to one of their big games in the Fall."

Does this mean that Walls' decision has been put on hold?

"Yea, I can not make it until I go up there (to Tennessee) to see what it is like. I have already been to Ole Miss a bunch, and I went down to Florida recently, so I need to compare all of the schools first."

Has Marlon been in contact with any of the staffs to inform them that he is pushing his decision back?

"I spoke to Coach Freeze (from Ole Miss) the other day. He told me to take my time and make the best decision for me. He (Freeze) is a really cool guy. He was the first coach to start recruiting me, and they were the first school to offer me. I have a lot of love for them."

Does Walls have a leader?

"I am leaning towards Ole Miss and Florida. If I had to make a choice right now, those two would be it, but it would not be right to make a decision without visiting their (Tennessee) campus first."

Has Marlon been in contact with Tennessee about missing the visit?

"I spoke to Coach Trooper last week some time. He told me to make sure I caught one of their games first before making my mind up."

Which college is coming after Walls the hardest?

"I would have to say Ole Miss because they make sure to keep in constant contact with me."

The former Wooddale (TN) product has recently transferred to Olive Branch (MS).

"Our head coach left from Wooddale and my mother got a new job. That is why I left. Everything is going real good down here though. They are all about winning, so it's all good."
