Wallace back from Colorado

2012 point guard Tyrone Wallace officially visited Colorado this weekend. He talks to Scout.com about the trip.

Tyrone Wallace took the next step in his recruitment this weekend as the 6-foot-4, 175-pound Bakersfield (Calif.) point guard officially visited Colorado.

It was Wallace's third visit following trips to Fresno State and California, and the 2012 prospect said he enjoyed himself.

"It was good," Wallace said. "The campus was nice the facilities were nice too, and overall the visit was good. It was overall a nice place."

Watching Colorado in action, Wallace got a better feel for where he would fit into CU's program.

"They're playing up-tempo and I liked what they do in practice," he said. "I would come in and play off the ball and on the ball. If Spencer (Dinwiddie) gets the ball, he would take it up the court on a rebound and I get the ball, I would take it."

Wallace says one of the main aspects of both the Cal and CU visits that he was happy with was getting to know the head coaches better.

"At Cal I got the chance to talk to coach (Mike) Montgomery and get a better feel for him," said Wallace. "While I was at Colorado I got to know coach (Tad) Boyle a lot more too."

As he gets closer to a decision, is Wallace ready to name a leader?

"Everything is kind of tight right now," he said. "I haven't been to Oregon yet but so far the Colorado and Cal visits were pretty good."
