A.J. Wallace Checks In

As one of the first names to pop up as a 2005-2006 target of Nebraska, A.J. Wallace was an individual that many were familiar with from an early point. Now that the recruiting process is starting to initialize what sort of contact has Nebraska made with A.J. and is his interest in the Cornhuskers still there?

A.J. Wallace is taking time in the off-season to improve himself not only as a football player, but as an athlete overall.  So what has he been up to during the off-season?  "Nothing much just in the weight room and running track.  I've been working on my legs more and I'm doing some upper body stuff," said Wallace.  A.J. runs both the 100 meter and 200 meter dash for Maurice J McDonough High School. 

Currently, A.J. claims offers from Nebraska, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Vanderbilt, NC State, Georgia, LSU and Penn State.  As far as visits go, right now the only one set in stone is a trip to Lincoln in the next couple of weeks.  "(Nothing is planned) besides the spring game.  I think I'm going to come out for an (official) visit, not sure at this moment, as far as camps go, I might end up going to a camp," said Wallace. 

Nebraska has been stepping up their contact with A.J. making sure he knows he's wanted.  "I've been getting letters from them, Coach Elmassian, Coach Blake and Coach Callahan," said Wallace.  He mentioned that Phil Elmassian has been the coach who has been contacting him the most, so what does he think of his contact from NU?  "Coach Elmassian is pretty cool, that's the guy I mostly talk to.  He's real up front, he doesn't shoot for anything, and he's the guy to talk to," said Wallace. 

As far as who he is considering, A.J. makes it clear that while he is definitely interested in the Cornhuskers, he wants to wait out the recruiting process, learn more about prospective universities and make the right decision in the end.  "I'm interested in Nebraska, I think they've got a good football team, I know it was a rebuilding year last year.  I'm considering Nebraska; I just have to look into every school," said Wallace.
