4-star LB has interest in UM

Anthony Wallace has become one of the nation's most heavily recruited linebacker prospects and the Dallas (Skyline) standout has an offer from Miami. Read on to see what he's saying about the Canes, the recruiting process, and more.

Anthony Wallace helped his team reach the state semi-finals last season while making 90 tackles and a number of other big plays. At 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, Wallace has become a national recruit.

"Lately I've just been working out and we just started spring practice," Wallace said. "I am ready for the spring game and that's been our focus."

Wallace has scholarship offers from all over college football from Texas to Oklahoma to USC to Florida to LSU to Miami. He says things are wide open still.

"I don't know them," he said when asked for a current group of favorites. "I am still wide open. I didn't even have a favorite team growing up or anything. I just like football and now I'm enjoying the recruiting process."

One of the schools who offered Wallace very early is Miami. He talked about his interest in the Canes.

"I'm considering them," he said. "I like the tradition they have down there. I've seen their system and I liked it, think I could fit in."

Wallace has taken in Junior Days at Texas and Oklahoma and plans on taking in a camp at USC this summer.

"Texas has awesome facilities and Coach Muschamp is one of the best," he said. "Oklahoma isn't as deep at linebacker. I liked them both. As for the summer, the only thing I am going to that I know of now is a camp at USC sometime in June."

The standout linebacker prospect may be a long ways from a decision but he does know what he'll be looking for.

"I'm looking for a school with a good family atmosphere and a place where I can get a lot of playing time," he said.

Inside the classroom Wallace claims a 3.5 GPA and hasn't reported a test score yet.
