Two Officials Set Up, Three To Go For Wallace

Heavily recruited defensive back prospect A.J. Wallace's name is showing up everywhere and no team's fan base is more familiar with him than Nebraska's. Recently, Wallace visited with one of the newest Cornhuskers and talked with us about some of his travels along with naming his current favorites.

A.J. Wallace's name is one that needs no introduction in Lincoln and certainly doesn't require one across the bevy of Internet haunts that the red clad loons dwell in.  He's wanted badly by the fans and coaching staff alike.  He currently holds an obscene 49 offers from the likes of Nebraska, Oklahoma, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, LSU, Miami (FL) and Ohio State.  The kid's a player, that much is true, and the narrowing down of his decision has begun.

Wallace took the time to venture out and manage a few unofficial visits lately.  "I went to Ohio State and I went to Michigan's camp.  Those were pretty good.  At the Michigan camp, I learned a lot of things that will help during the season and OSU was pretty cool all around plus I got to meet Ted Ginn," he said.

Taking what he learned from the Wolverines camp, Wallace plans to become a better pure athlete at his position.  "I'll probably work on my cornerback stuff so that'll help me for college.  Breaking out of the backfield a little quicker, getting to the ball faster, you know," he said.

The official visits for Wallace are being lined up and two are already in place.  He visits the Nebraska Cornhuskers for what is shaping up to be nothing but a monumental weekend against the Oklahoma Sooners and will visit the Ohio State Buckeyes as they match up in a fantastic non-conference bout with the Texas Longhorns.  Other candidates for official visits include: LSU, Florida, Florida State, Michigan and Oklahoma.

Wallace reports that both schools to which he has unofficials planned along with those being considered for visits are his current favorites. 

Recently, Wallace met up with a current Cornhusker freshman-to-be in former teammate David Harvey.  A.J. said that David's impressions of his collegiate home were favorable.  "It's been pretty good.  He was saying it was a totally different lifestyle out there, like it's a slower pace," he said.  Wallace has been sure to keep up with his communication as well.  "I called them (Nebraska) the other day and I got to talk to most of the staff," he said.
