Tylan and Tracin Wallace have nothing to prove to the Oklahoma State football coaching staff. The two standout athletes from Fort Worth South Hills High School are both verbally committed to the Cowboys.
I guess Tracin might have something to prove as he is coming off an ACL injury that cost him his junior season and he is now able to run around, jump some, throw the ball, and do football activity. The twin brothers, according to Tylan, got off the couch and drove to Stillwater last Sunday for the Cowboys Mini-Camp, which is usually reserved for juniors and seniors that want to show off and prove they should be recruited.
Tracin is a dual threat quarterback who already has over 6,000 yards of total offense and has accounted for 73 touchdowns through the air and on the ground even after missing all of his junior season last fall after tearing his ACL in his knee in a scrimmage vs. Dallas Seagoville. Tylan is a Class 5A All-State wide receiver who caught 59 passes last season for 1,439 yards and had 20 touchdowns.
So on Sunday, Tylan went with wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn and the receivers for his work and Tracin, who admitted he could be with the receivers when he gets to Oklahoma State, went with offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Yurcich and the quarterbacks. That is what he will play for the Scorpions this season.
Both players measured as expected at 6-1 and in the 180-pound range. Neither of the brothers tested on sprints, but Tylan ripped off a speedy 4.1 second 5-10-5 shuttle drill. They both worked hard and had fun.
