Interest Picking Up For Wallace

Tyrone Wallace, the top point guard on the West Coast for 2012, has a number of programs expressing interest in him...

Tyrone Wallace, 6-3 JR PG Bakersfield (Calif.) High, is the top point guard prospect in the west for 2012. A lefty with a terrific feel for the game, Wallace showed his considerable talent at the recent UCLA Advanced Skills Camp. Wallace has excellent vision and playmaking ability. He loves to take smaller guards off the dribble and use his size in the lane. He's also one of the more advanced players in his class in terms of his defensive ability. His length and quickness make him a very tough match up for opposing players.

I spoke with Wallace after the camp and asked him about the schools that have been recruiting him to date.

"UCLA, UNLV, Nevada, Arizona, Fresno State, USC, San Diego State and Colorado are some of them," said Wallace.

I asked Wallace which schools have offered a scholarship so far.

"UNLV, Nevada and Fresno State have offered," said Wallace. "I'm open right now, there isn't a leader."

Wallace talked a little about his experience at the camp.

"It was a really good camp," said Wallace. "They taught me a lot. Stuff like playing the pick and roll, other stuff I need to work on."

I asked Wallace what the primary factors will be when he chooses a school.

"If I can play right away," said Wallace. "I'd like to play early. The location isn't really a big deal, although my family would probably like me to stay close so they can watch me play.

Wallace doesn't see himself making an early decision.

"I'll probably wait until my senior year," said Wallace.

Wallace said he currently has a 3.1 GPA.
