Brandon Wallace update

Brandon Wallace had been listing the North Carolina Tar Heels among his list of favorite schools in recent interviews -- but it appears that won't be happening any more. We reached the WF/SG at his home in South Carolina and got the scoop on his recruitment.

"It seems that they just aren't interested," Wallace said of the UNC program. "I had been listing them but they just aren't coming after me at all. So, I guess I'm not interested in them anymore. Not so much."

Even though UNC isn't pursuing the slender shooter, there are some solid programs who are. Among those, according to him, are UConn, Maryland, Clemson, South Carolina and Georgia Tech. He thinks that he has firm offers from Clemson and South Carolina.

Wallace just finished up a week-long basketball camp at the University of South Carolina in Columbia and he also took an unofficial tour of Georgia Tech on Friday as well.

"It was pretty good," Wallace noted of his visit to Georgia Tech. "They want me to come back for an official visit too."

He was not offered a scholarship, however, by Paul Hewitt.

The 6-foot-9, 190-pound rising senior is a perimeter oriented shooter/slasher that has a little bit of Tayshaun Prince and Mike Dunleavy in his game. He has an accurate perimeter jump shot with excellent range and has really improved his isolation moves off the dribble.

We have seen Wallace in action for two summers now and he has really started to mature with his all around offensive skills. Last year at this time he was pretty much one dimensional in terms of scoring. It was a jump shot or nothing. But while running with the South Carolina-based Topps Sports squad at the TOC -- Wallace showed onlookers that he has added more to his game. He looked much better handling the ball and created a lot of space to shoot his beautiful pull-up jumper and fadeaway. These skills, added to his aforementioned long range jumper made him nearly impossible to defend.

Wallace averaged 22 points, 13 boards and five blocks per game in his junior season at Aiken (S.C.) South Bluff.
