Article quotes Walton as staying in the sec.
No surprise whatsoever.
Good luck to him. I would really rather there guys say nothing than to say they don't want to be plan b guys and then go be a plan f guy.
Linebacker/fullback will take final official visit to Auburn this weekend
We eliminated you first, kid.

Apparently he does not watch the NFL.

See ya, second fiddle.
Kids who have de-committed from Penn State do not have a great track record.
Your choice, Mr. Walton.
F the NCAA
F the BOT
Good luck to the kid playing in the part of the country where he always wanted to play.

I'm sure this was the last piece of info Sean needed to finish he S zone.
Some of you guys are brutal. He's a kid. Let it go.
Good luck to him.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
Singleton is off the board as well. Time to start banking some ships for much bigger fish down the road. This class is full of impact players that will have great careers beyond Hackenburg and Breneman. If playing in the almighty SEC trumps being fast tracked to NFL stardom and money, then best of wishes to Mr. Walton.
Damn, who would have thought this rock solid commit would bail.
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
Not a surprise at all.....good luck to him.
Some of you guys need to get off your high horse and stop acting like the SEC doesn't produce NFL talent.
Right - what does PSU know about producing linebacker NFL talent.
Exactly. If there are two positions that we can beat our chests about it's LB and DL. Both have top 5 coaching at those positions and both have pro bowlers in the NFL right now.
The kid wants to play in the SEC... that's fine. I just hope for his sake that he doesn't wait to long. Those SEC scholarships can dry up fast (sometimes even after you commit, lol).
He chose his words, he made his own bed.
It also produces a lot of kids with meaningful degrees.
Grow up. This is football and he is a seventeen year old kid. He didn't ask you to turn him into a celebrity to have his every word scrutinized.
I don't understand posts like this. The kid is getting a free ride to college because football and its players are so highly valued. Honestly, I see it that if he wants to play big time football..........he IS asking to have his every word scrutinized. It's a part of the world he's getting in to, ESPECIALLY in today's day and age of twitter.......and GASP internet recruiting message boards. If he doesn't like it, he can go get a job or pay for college on his own.
I get that it's probably annoying to him, but its a part of the life he's choosing. Just the way things are.
Yea, that makes sense. A kid from the south has a chance to get a free education (and perhaps is the only way he can get an education at all) so therefore he should expect grown men on the internet to criticize him when he decides he doesn't want to go play for the school those grown men are fans of?
That is the most absurd thing I've ever heard. You and your buddies in this thread are acting like, at best, butt-hurt teenage girls. Have some self-respect and try acting like a grown up.
It's like you don't understand the world we live in. There is a reason there are free educations available for good football players, because guys like me "and my buddies" will travel near and far to pack houses to watch them play.
In today's day and age, what they say is broadcast everywhere. No one made him do interviews, no one made him say that he didn't want to be second fiddle to anyone. But he did do the interviews, and he did say those things.
If we weren't crazy and pump 10k a year into this hobby, there would be no schollies available for a "kid from the south". There is good and bad with big time football. Good = free education. Bad = life scrutinized. Just the way things are.
