Looking to commit after the spring

It's been almost three weeks since the Mustangs received their first commitment in the 2011 recruiting class, and SMU fans are itching for another. Could Carter Wall be the next commitment? Come inside for the details! You don't want to miss this!

It's been almost three weeks since the Mustangs received their first commitment in the 2011 recruiting class, and SMU fans are itching for another.

But, if they thought Travis high school offensive tackle Carter Wall was going to be the second, they might need to wait just a little longer.

"I'm thinking about committing after spring football. I feel like there might be some schools wanting to wait to offer me until then, so we'll see," said Wall to PonyStampede.com on Monday night. "I don't want to commit, and then have some other awesome school knock on my door the next day. So we are just going to take our time."

The 6'5, 270 pound junior has seen his recruiting spike over the last month, due to him getting his tape out in front of coaches. Besides for SMU and Houston, who have offered, Baylor is now entering the picture.

"I think they might be getting close to offering soon, but I'm not sure,"said Wall.

One thing that is for sure, Wall enjoyed his recent trip to the Hilltop in Dallas.

"It was an awesome school. That place was crazy. The campus is amazing and they are a program on the rise. I would love to be part of the rebirth there. It would be really cool to be part of something like that," said the junior. "My mom wants me to go there. She is all about education and she loved the campus. Also, the way SMU practices, they don't go in pads everyday. She really liked that. She said she wanted me to have longevity. So she is pushing for them."

Wall's recruiting coach is Jeff Reinebold. While the receivers coach might be the one that found the offensive lineman, it's SMU offensive line coach Adriam Klemm trying to help reel him in. Wall's visit was the first time the two talked face-to-face.

"I liked him. He obviously knows what he is talking about o-line wise. He won three Super Bowls. We both see football the same I think," stated the Travis product. "They talked about how Coach Jones coached the Falcons and how everybody else was a coach or player in the NFL. Obviously, that would be a goal of mine to get to the NFL, so that would be cool."

Besides for SMU, Baylor, and Houston, Texas A&M, Missouri, Michigan, and Arkansas are recruiting the lineman.
