Stalls talks about his decision

Kent State got some big news earlier this week when Tampa (Fla.) Plant defensive back Keenan Stalls pulled the trigger on a commitment to the Flashes. The 6-foot, 175-pound cornerback fills a big need for Darrell Hazell and company as a major emphasis has been put on bringing in quality prospects in the secondary. The commitment came on the heels of an official visit by Stalls to Kent State and we caught up with him to talk about his decision.

"Yep (I committed)," said Stalls. "The visit went pretty well. I got a chance to look into the school more and get some questions answered. I talked with a lot of the players and after I had a talk with the cornerbacks coach (Jon Heacock) and coach Hazell, I was pretty much sold."

For Stalls, after getting a chance to get a feel for the campus and speak with the staff and players, he said it just felt like the right fit.

"(Coach Hazell) along with a few of the other coaches said that I should fit very well into the program and I think so as well," he said.

Not only does Stalls fill a big positional need for Kent State, but it also shows some results of the work that the Kent State coaching staff has been putting into recruiting the state of Florida. Stalls is the second Floridian to join Kent State's 2012 recruiting class, joining three-star wide receiver James Brooks.
