Wallace One To Watch

Artem Wallace isn't well known yet, but the 2005 power forward figures to draw plenty of attention in the next year...

Artem Wallace, 6-8 JR PF Toledo (Wash.) High, was the best prospect recently at the West Coast All-Star camp and probably should have been playing at one of the shoe camps. At 230 pounds, he's got very good feet and the ability to score inside and out.

We spoke with Wallace and asked if he had an early list of schools. "I don't really have any thoughts on schools right now," said Wallace. " I don't care about location -- I'm just looking for someplace with good academics and basketball."

Wallace went on to say, "I'd like to play at the highest level, but I don't want to sit -- I want to go where I can play.

Look for Wallace to take his time with the decision. "I'll probably take five visits," said Wallace. "I want to make sure I pick the right college."

Wallace told us that he had a 3.8 GPA this past semester and has a 3.4 overall.
