Apparently it's working.

According to the newest Red Wolf commitment Jyron Walters, it was that warm welcoming feeling that made him decide to head north to Jonesboro Arkansas.

AStateNation.com broke the commitment of the New Orleans signal caller and visited with him one on one about his decision.

"They made me feel at home," Walters said. "I got that warm family feeling, the entire coaching staff made me feel very comfortable around them."

Walters, from McDonogh 35 High School, attended camp at Arkansas State this summer and admitted Sunday that he was very close to pulling the trigger the day after the camp.

"I really liked it there a lot," Walters said. "I thought about committing the day after I left their camp. I really love the stadium, but I decided to wait and visit with my parents, my coach and make a solid decision."

That's exactly what Walters did Sunday afternoon.

"I called Coach Freeze and Coach Heard to tell them I was committing," Walters said. "They were very, very happy, they were estatic. They asked me if I was ready to be a Red Wolf and I told them I was."

Walters finished his junior season at McDonogh 35 Senior HS with over 1,900 yards and 14 touchdowns. He is 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete with good speed.

Walters make commitment No. 9 for Freeze and his coaching staff. Quarterback coach Grant Heard is in charge of Walter's recruitment.
