InsideTheSpartans, Question: Blake, two of your former teammates at Serra are now at San Jose State… How big of a role did that play in your recruitment?
Blake Walls, Answer: “They had a big impact on my decision,” Walls said. “Every time they went out there they came back and told me how much they enjoyed it out there and how they really take care of you if you’re serious about being a Spartan. They really told me how much fun they had there and how cool the coaches are there.”
Q: How was your experience visiting SJSU?
A: “I enjoyed being with the coaches,” Walls said. “I met a couple other players and we walked around, got a tour of the school, and talked about the football team and where they are trying to go and how the school works. It’s not too close, it’s not too far from home. If I want to go and visit my family I can… The coaches and the players and the vibe I was getting, it seemed like they actually wanted me and not just saying what I want to hear.
Q: What does SJSU have planned for you on defense?
A: “They told me that I will be playing WILL once I get out there. Pretty much at inside linebacker position...I talked to Frank and he just told me about how he enrolled early and how he was adjusting to the program. He said it’s really hard and I’ve got to come in and really work hard if I want to get on the field early.”
