Wall makes No. 16

A few days after telling PonyStampede.com that he would more than likely commit to SMU, William B. Travis product offensive lineman Carter Wall has pulled the trigger. Come inside for the details of No. 16 as SMU offensive line coach Adrian Klemm does it again.

PonyStampede.com has learned that Carter Wall has committed to SMU. Shortly after hearing from sources that he committed, ShowmeMizzou.com (Scout.com) confirmed through a text message.

The Mustangs, who will jump a few spots in the team rankings, are once again getting noticed by Scout.com for the level of recruits they are pulling.

After committing, Greg Powers, Midland's Regional Manager for Scout.com had this to say about Wall's commitment.

"Wall is yet another huge pick-up for the SMU staff (Adrian Klemm) and it really seems they are on a roll as of late. They were able to top Missouri for Wall's verbal and he is the type of player who could have had a successful career in any conference," said Powers. "Wall plays left tackle in high school and he could play definitely play tackle on the collegiate level. He is powerful at the point of attack and seems to be very good at getting his hands on defenders. Once he locks on he is strong enough to control and hold off the pass rushers or turn defenders to open up running lanes. He also does an excellent job of making blocks on the second level.

"He has quick feet and is smooth enough to get his hands on linebackers proving that he can run well and block in open space. He also brings a certain grittiness to the field, which shows he has a true passion and affinity for laying out defenders."

Earlier this week, he told PonyStampede.com that SMU was leading the way for multiple reasons.

"It's a combination of a lot of things for me, but I think it's four things that stick out in my mind about SMU. 1.) The quality of living there is amazing. If anyone has been there, they know what I'm talking about. It's just gorgeous. 2.) My relationship with the coaches is great. I think I have a better relationship with them than any other school. Coach Klemm is a great guy. 3.) The education is great. I should have said that first. I'm not going to get a better education out of all the offers I have. 4.) It will also provide me with a chance to make an immediate impact. Something that has interested me."
