Because of his athleticism, however, Scout.com is going with the position projection of cornerback/safety. That is where he will log minutes on the next level unless whatever team he winds up can't find a better running back than Wall.
We like him at cornerback more than safety because of his hips and ability to play the ball in the air, but we think he has the size and toughness to play safety also.
Without question, kid has a lot to offer as a cornerback, save track speed. Hence the possibility of him moving over to safety if he struggles to find his way into the college lineup as a starting cornerback, or third corner earning significant playing time by spelling both cornerbacks early and often.
Going one step further, the 5-11, 185-pound defensive back should vie for minutes as a nickle or dime back early in his D-I career. We look for Wall to play an important role during his sophomore season, provided he doesn't get onto the field as a redshirt or true freshman.
Wall, is a Texas Tech Red Raider commitment (who carries three stars) and is one of Scout.com's Top-Rated Texas defensive backs. He is expected to honor his pledge to attend Texas Tech. Of course, in recruiting you never know so anything can and often does happen. Make sure you stay tuned to Scout.com's Signing Day Coverage from here until February 1, 2006. We have you covered in the final stretch run. Check back with us early and often, and circle Feb. 1 on your calendars. That's the date the commitments/targets in the Class of 2006 make their intentions/commitments official.
