Sanford targets four-star wide out

Four-star receiver Tylan Wallace has been adding new offers at a rapid pace. Notre Dame and Oregon are among the latest to join the mix as Wallace spends more time focused on track.

Tylan Wallace doesn’t get too carried away with talking about his recruitment, even if it’s beginning to move at warp speed.

Scholarship offers continue to arrive at a rapid pace. Notre Dame, Oregon and Missouri are among those to pop up over the last couple weeks. Arizona State, Houston, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt and Virginia are among the others previously extended.

“It’s going pretty good,” Wallace said.

And that’s about all Wallace, ranked No. 116 overall in the latest Scout300, has to say about it.

At least in terms of the big picture.

Notre Dame is an offer that caught his attention through offensive coordinator Mike Sanford, who recruits the area. He and Wallace talked on the phone, which led to adding the Irish to the group of suitors.

Sanford has worked the Dallas/Forth Worth metroplex since arriving in South Bend.

“I called the coach and he said that he liked my film,” Wallace said. “He thinks I would fit in really well at Notre Dame and he offered me. I don’t really know a lot about them.”

During their conversation, Sanford gave Wallace a few things to know right away.

“He was saying how good of a place it is,” Wallace said, “and that the campus is beautiful.”

Oregon is another offer that intrigues Wallace.

“It felt pretty good,” he said. “I mean, that’s an offer that doesn’t just get handed out.”

Wallace might eventually see those programs for himself. But right now the 5-foot-11, 170-pound prospect is putting off potential trips. He’s currently working with the South Hills track team while in the football offseason.

Visits are something that will have to come either last minute or a little later.

“I don’t have any planned,” Wallace said.
