"I would go there," said Wallace in response to if he had any interest in Colorado. "They are in-state and a good program. I haven't seen the campus yet, but I'd like to."

Aaron was an honorable mention all-conference selection as a junior but he looks to have many more honors attached to his name after his senior season. His coach certainly thinks he is ready to take his game to the next level.

"He has a huge upside," says Overland Head Coach Tony Manfredi. "I think he is one of those kids who is ready for a bust-out year. He is athletic for his size and he has the frame to put on plenty of weight."

Aaron plays both offense and defense, but says he prefers the defensive end spot and expects to be recruited there.

Wallace has received early interest from Kansas, Arizona State, Wyoming, Colorado State, Oregon, Air Force Academy, and Army. His early top choices include ASU, Kansas, CSU, Oklahoma State, Miami, UNLV, and USC.

When asked to describe his strengths on the field Aaron responded, "I have good experience and good strength."

He has not made any summer camp plans yet.

Wallace carries a 3.2 core GPA and will take his ACT on April 3rd. He is undecided on a major.
