Wallace still eyeing trips

Nebraska has a couple of talented, interior lineman commits in the class of 2014 but it's clear that they are still in need of some offensive tackles. One of the names that Nebraska fans could find visiting Lincoln sometime this fall is Brian Wallace.

Brian Wallace from St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers College High School is having a solid senior campaign so far. The 6-foot-6 and 295-pound offensive tackle is rated the No. 16 offensive tackle in the nation according to Scout.com and is also regarded as a four-star prospect.

"Things are going good right now," Brian Wallace, Sr. said. "Brian had a very good game this past weekend. I am pretty proud when of how he and his team are performing. He is still playing right tackle on offense and he's also playing both ways for his team."

Wallace's father said that there hasn't been any official visits set yet, but that could change. There is a lot that comes into making the plans to take official visits and some of it is also luck when it comes to the existing schedule.

"We're definitely going to do it (take trips). It's about timing it out with everything. It's also a monetary thing too since it costs money for the parents to travel with our son on his official visits."

In one of the last interviews with Scout.com, Wallace indicated that Nebraska was a school that he was still considering. His father could only reiterate that thought and not much beyond that.

"Bottom line, I leave this up a lot to my son, but I have my thoughts about the schools to visit too. I know that he's definitely still interested in visiting Nebraska, but I can't speak to it much more beyond that for Brian."

Greg Powers, the Midland Football Recruiting Manager and also a National Analyst for Scout.com, gives high praise to Wallace as a player. "A big prospect who has a ton of potential and moves very well for his size. He is tall and long, but has good weight in the lower body and a strong, balanced base. Seems to be a prototype right tackle with potential to be a left tackle."
