Notre Dame needs help on the interior of their defense and is they could add a player like Anthony Wallace (6-foot-2, 235-pounds) to the 2011 recruiting class, that would certainly be a step in the right direction. Wallace has an offer from the Irish, and he'd like to take a trip to Notre Dame this summer.
"I really haven't talk to anybody, but I believe they've talked to one of our coaches," Wallace said. "They offered me. I got the letter in the mail. I've been planning on taking a visit down there. It's not concrete, but that's what me and my family have decided to do. We want to get on the road and I told them that I wanted to go see Notre Dame.
"I want to go see Notre Dame, Tennessee, USC, Miami, there are a lot more places I want to see. It's a learning experience for my parents too. We're learning as we go along, which is why we're trying to take as many visits as we can. We don't want to settle on one place without getting a look at some other places that might be a better fit for me. That's why we want to get on the road and go see some places."
Top prospects from Texas usually don't escape the grasp of Mack Brown, but Wallace says that he's going to keep an open mind throughout the recruiting process.
"I don't have any favorites right now, and I'm trying to keep things open," he explained. "Every school has had something different to offer, so it depends on what you're looking for. Personally I've liked a lot of the things that I've seen at different places.
"I've already been to Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and TCU. I've been to the schools that are closer. This summer I'm going to try to get around to just about everywhere, so I can see what's out there before I make up my mind.
"After I go out and see a lot of places, I'll be able to narrow everything down," he said. "I wanted to make a decision before my season is over, but if I'm not ready, then I won't, but I‘m going to try to make it before the season is over."
