Oklahoma State wide receiver commitment Tylan Wallace got home in the wee hours of Monday morning. He was tired and a little sore but pretty happy with his experience at Nike's The Opening.
Wallace made a circus catch that made the rounds on YouTube during the Elite 11 competition, but he hurt his shoulder and that compromised him some during the other days in the event. He told us he still ran an impressive 4.2 in the 5-10-5 shuttle during testing.
Wallace was the only Oklahoma State commitment in The Opening but he represented well coming off the injury list on Sunday to make two important catches in the second half of the 7-on-7 finals as his Fly Rush team was trying to come back from a huge deficit against eventual winner Vapor Speed.
Wallace described those catches and showed his enjoyment with the overall experience that included bringing home a lot of new workout gear courtesy of the folks at Nike. He said he is glad to be back and working the rest of the summer toward his senior season at Fort Worth South Hills High School and playing with his twin brother and South Hills quarterback and Oklahoma State commitment Tracin Wallace.
