Oh, you thought the Get To Know Your Orange Man series was over? You thought WRONG.

Name: Davon Walls

Position: Defensive Tackle

Year: Junior

Height: 6'5"

Weight: 315

Hometown: Brooklyn, NY

High School/Junior College: Abraham Lincoln/Coahoma CC

North 2011 Stats: Honestly, I can't find out. I guess he did well, though.

2012 Projections:Very tough to say at the moment. Walls won't report to camp until Tuesday due to some academic issues, so he's going to be playing a lot of catch up. He's not even on the depth chart at the moment and he's going to have to work hard in order to make a dent. It usually takes JUCO transfers a year to get up to speed, so figure that this year will be a learning one for the transfer, with his impact being felt next season.

How'd He Get Here?: It remains unclear how he ended up here but given the fact that he's from Brooklyn, I'm sure Marrone or Anselmo made some calls.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: I didn't see any listings for him on Rivals or Scout so it looks like he was a late bloomer.

Money Quote: Nothing from Walls yet but here's his new D-line coach Tim Daoust on his wealth of incoming talent...

"It’s a good Christmas Day for me right here, having all these gifts. I have to figure out how to use them."

Links of Wonder:

What Does Marrone Think?: "Davon Walls will be reporting, we believe, on Tuesday. He has a test, academics obviously, outside of Syracuse University that he needs to complete before he becomes part of the team." So, he's expecting him, at least...

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Walls was a big basketball player at Lincoln High as well as in CC so you can bet he's pretty agile for a big guy.

Besides playing football, he's also a good public speaker...
