Denton (TX) Guyer defensive back Jordan Wallace collected his first scholarship offer about a month ago when Iowa State pulled the trigger and extended him a scholarship. He reciprocated that interest with an unofficial visit to Ames, where he camped in front of the Cyclone staff.
The trip went perfectly and has ended with Wallace's commitment to Iowa State.
"I chose to commit today because it felt right there," Wallace told Scout. "Iowa State felt like home to me. It's a big weight off my shoulders. I know that I've made it to the level of football that I've always dreamed of playing. I'm grateful to Iowa State for giving me the opportunity and I look forward to contributing for them."
The Iowa State boss was just as pumped up as Wallace.
"I gave the news to Coach Rhoads today," Wallace explained. "He said one of his assistants told him I was about to call. He was sitting around and waiting to hear from me. He was pretty nervous about what it could be. He was pretty pumped up and we shared some laughs."
The visit gave Wallace a better appreciation of the program and he came away with strong impressions of the campus, overall.
"It was a blast," he shared about his time in Ames. "I liked the campus and their dorms were very big. The athletic facility was pretty awesome, too. It blew me away. Their basketball program is top-notch too and I like how the two sports come together and work well with one another. I really liked the secondary coach (Coach Linguist), as well."
"I saw and got to speak with a lot of their coaching staff," Wallace added. "They said they really liked what I did during the camp. The town was awesome to see, too. It's a great family environment there."
Wallace pointed out that his commitment is a strong one.
"Iowa State is the only school I plan on visiting," he stated. "I'm locked in. I haven't made any plans to return to Iowa State but I'm anxious in setting up another trip there."
