CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

McCallie cornerback C.J. Fritz and lineman Cam Walker committed to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on Sunday, following an official visit this weekend. The Mocs football program also got a commitment from Northeast (Tenn.) High School's Montrell Pardue.

The speedy 5-foot-10, 170-pound Fritz -- he won a Division II state title in the 100 meters last spring -- told UTC on Sunday night that he wanted to play for the Mocs.

"After the official visit, me and my parents talked it over and we thought the coaches were a great fit for me, as well as the academics and the school," said Fritz, who made the Tennessee Division II All-Region team this season. "It's in my backyard, so I'm still at home and I feel like the program is going in a good direction, too."

McCallie coach Ralph Potter said Fritz, who didn't play as a sophomore in order to focus on basketball and track, is only beginning to tap into his potential.
