One other thing
that made Marlon feel special was this.
"I was the first person he went and saw for an inhome visit. That pretty much told me all that I needed to know. The only question I really had was how important I was going to be to him. I did not expect him to be that excited about me. He is just a real down to earth cat."
Anymore questions that the MS/Al All-Star selection have for Coach Nutt?
"I asked him how tough he was going to be, and he told me pretty tough. That is what I wanted to hear. We have the same goals and that is to get this thing turned around as soon as possible."
Does this visit solidify Walls' commitment to Ole Miss?
"Oh yea, I am keeping my commitment to Ole Miss. You know I have been a Rebel at heart for a long time now."
Marlon has been pretty active in talking to the rest of the Ole Miss recruits; will that continue?
"That's funny you asked that. Coach Nutt said a lot of the recruits were asking about me and asking if I was staying with my commitment. I did not know I was that important. I told him that I am going to round us up one of the best groups in the country."
Walls has had a few more colleges come by his school this week.
and Louisville came by this week. MSU came last week. Tennessee told me that Coach
Fulmer was coming to see me Monday. I set up an official visit with them on January
11th and Louisville on January 18th. I am still going to Ole Miss on January 25th.
I told Tennessee and Louisville that I was willing to talk to them but I know
this is my final decision."
Marlon finished the season with 128 tackles, 32 hurries, 10 sacks, and 7 forced fumbles.
