A.J. Wallace: Wrong Vibe

Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Allen Wallace spoke with cornerback A.J. Wallace of McDonough High School in Pomfret, Md., and one big-time school has been dropped from contention.

Pomfret (Md.) cornerback/running back A.J. Wallace (6-1, 195, 4.4) said Michigan is now out of the picture and will not be a consideration for an official visit.

"Michigan is out of it for me," said Wallace, from McDonough High School. "I just don't have a really good level of comfort there that I do with the other schools I'm considering. It's a good program, but I just don't get the right vibe with them. I've had a really hard time trying to visualize myself playing there, so they're out of it for me."

There's always the possibility Michigan simply backed-off.

"I'm going to narrow down my last three visits between Florida, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma and Miami. All of them have offered me," he said.

"Right now, those schools along with Nebraska (10/28 official trip) and Ohio State (9/9 official trip) are my top schools. I think that Ohio State, Nebraska, Florida State, Florida and Miami are all recruiting me the hardest. I get a lot of text messages from the coaches at those programs. The text messages they send me just want to see how I'm doing and they also tell me what's going on with the team and the program.

"I've been doing a lot of background checks on all of these schools with my parents. We've been looking at education, location and the program itself. I'm not just concentrating on the football aspects of all of this," said Wallace.

McDonough High School takes on Choptican in their season opener on September 9.
