When Walls heads to Evansville to begin the next step in his baseball career, he will be taking the same path his coach took at his age. Reed played for USI from 1996-2000. Reed said he thinks Walls’ tools will translate very well to the collegiate level.
“I think it’s a great fit for him,” Reed said. “There is no doubt in my mind that Brayden Walls can step right in and contribute at USI. The kid is gifted, he has a chance to play this game for a while ¬ there’s no doubt about that.”
As Reed has gushed many times this season, Walls can do anything on a baseball field that he wants, and Walls, himself, knows there is a tough road ahead with many adjustments, but he¹s ready for the challenge.
“I don’t really know what to expect, I’m just going to work my tail off and hopefully good things will happen,” Walls said
