Berry basketball player Chris Walls signs

Berry High boys basketball player Chris Walls has signed with Hickory's Caldwell Community College.

Walls, a 6-foot-4 forward/center averaged six points, five rebounds and one block for Berry, which reached its first N.C. Western regional this season.

"Chris came in this season and helped us with his scoring and rebounding," said Berry coach Michael Willis, the 2009-10 Observer boys coach of the year in Mecklenburg County. "That helped us win some clutch games this year. Chris is a long, athletic forward with tons of potential."
