The University of Louisville football team sent out a scholarship offer on Thursday night to a hot name in the recruiting circles in the state of Texas.
DeSoto, Tx., dual-threat quarterback Tristen Wallace, who is committed to Texas Tech, reported the offer from the Cardinals.
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Wallace picked up his first offer - from Indiana - before he even played a varsity game. He also has offers from Baylor, Nebraska, TCU, Ohio State, UCLA and last week landed one from Texas.
Some schools are recruiting him as an athlete but many as a quarterback.
"Wallace is a difference maker as an athlete at the quarterback position," national analyst Greg Powers said last week in an article on Scout.com's national site. "He is an elite runner, who has pretty good speed despite the fact that he is very big from a physical and muscular standpoint. He still moves well and has that quick-twitch type of look to his game.
"As a thrower he has continued to make steady improvement and is a bit more polished each and every time we see him. He has definitely grown leaps and bounds from the first time he kind of burst on the QB radar at the Elite 11 camp one year ago. He has a very strong arm."
As a junior, Wallace threw for over 700 yards and rushed for over 700 yards. He finished with 15 total touchdowns.
