"Arizona would not be a bad place to go because I am pretty sure I could get early playing time there. I could at least be on the field by my sophomore year. Eary playing time is one of the main things I am looking for in a school."

Wallace is hearing from the UA staff and is also hearing from other Pac schools.

"Oregon State and Washington are after me the hardest. 'SC really likes me too. Washington State and ASU are also contacting me. I am interested in all of them. I think Oregon State is close to offering. They have just said that they want to see more film, like some other schools have also said."

If the Beavers did offer it would be Wallace's first.

Bates says that on the field he makes plays happen and can change the situation of a game.

He carries a 2.8 GPA and takes his SAT this Saturday. Wallace would like to major in Communications or Physical Education.

His team takes on San Fernando tonight.
