Wallace Still Open

Blake Wallace, a talented small forward from Southern California, is hearing from several schools. However, he tells us that not signing in the fall is a possibility...

Blake Wallace, 6-7 SR SF Anaheim (Calif.) Servite, told us last night that he's hearing from Virginia, Pepperdine, Gonzaga, Hawaii and Utah State.

Wallace has yet to set up any official visits, but he has an in-home with Utah State scheduled for today.

By his own admission, Wallace didn't have a great summer, but he says that he is motivated to demonstrate to people that he's a better player than he showed in July.

"I didn't really fit in with the team I was on," said Wallace. "I didn't play well, but I kind of have a chip on my shoulder now – I want to show people how I can play. I'm looking forward to my senior season."

We asked Wallace if he might consider waiting until the spring.

"That's definitely possible," said Wallace. "I'm really focused more on the season coming up now and I might not sign until the spring. This experience in the summer kind of made me think more about finding a team where the style of play will fit me."

Wallace said he's given a little more thought to the location of his future school.

"I'm kind of leaning to staying in the west now," said Wallace.
