Narrowing His Focus?

Fort Bend Travis offensive lineman Carter Wall has double-digit offers from schools around the country, including SMU. Where do the Mustangs stand with the 6-foot-5, 265-pounder? Wall says that things should become clearer as the summer continues.

Fort Bend Travis offensive lineman Carter Wall has plenty of suitors. The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder has double-digit offers from schools spanning the entire country. After mentioning previously that Missouri was his leader, Wall discussed his recruitment further over the weekend.

"I'm going to see Missouri's campus soon," said Wall. "I'll know a lot after that visit. Once I check things out, it will put things into perspective, one way or another. It is hard to pass up the competition that you face - playing for one of the top Big 12 schools.

"SMU is a pretty sweet gig. I really like SMU. The campus is gorgeous and they have the coolest, most laid-back coaches. I really like Coach (Adrian) Klemm. The only drawback about SMU, if anything, is that they want me to play in a two-point stance. I'll just have to get over that though, because most schools want you to play some in that stance."

Wall's high school team at Fort Bend Travis likes to pound the football on the ground most of the time.

"We're a team that focuses on the running game and so I play in a three-point stance in high school. It's mano-a-mano against the defensive linemen.

"We're looking decent for this year. We're looking good speed-wise. Last year, we started off great, winning our first three games, then we ended up 5-5. It was frustrating. I don't really know how to describe it."

The Tigers will be challenged immediately this season, as matchups against Klein Collins and Spring Westfield loom in the first and third week.

"Klein Collins has a quarterback and an offensive tackle (Texas commit Garrett Greenlea) who are really good," said Wall. "Westfield has two defensive linemen that are studs, including Desmond Jackson (Texas commit)."
