One of the stranger recruiting journeys one will ever see will come to an end Tuesday when four-star defensive back Avery Walls of McDonough announces his college choice.
The 5-11, 185-pound senior from Eagles Landing Christian Academy landed about 30 scholarship offers in the last year — most of them of the major-college variety — but he never got one from the two major colleges in this state.
But that’s just fine with Walls, who always favored the idea of going away to school anyway. And way away he will go as his three finalists are Cal, Michigan and Oregon. His announcement is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. at the school.
“I chose them because of academics,” said Walls, who transferred to Class A ECLA from Class AAAAA Union Grove before this past season. “Oregon has the No. 1 sports marketing program in the country.”
Not sure if that’s a hint but we’ll show up to find out.
