Introducing The New Cowboys: Tracin Wallace

Tracin Wallace is an outstanding athlete who will be given plenty of time to recover after two ACL injuries sidelined him the past two seasons.

Tracin Wallace
6-0, 175
Fort Worth (South Hills), Texas

Briefly: The question will be where will he end up playing? But the fact is there will be no rush. The two ACL tears are a problem, but he will be given all the time he needs to get back and be ready. During that time the coaching staff and Wallace should be able to figure out where he fits best, offense at receiver or a hybrid player, even package quarterback or defense in the secondary.

Other Offers: Florida International, Houston, North Texas, SMU, Tulsa, Vanderbilt.

High School: The Dallas Morning News has him as both a Top Area 100 prospect and a Texas Top 100 (No. 93) prospect. He was also named Texas High School Coaches Association honorable mention Academic All-State. Scout has him as a three-star prospect and the 83rd-best athlete prospect in the country and 14th in the Midlands and Texas. In the two games he played his senior season he completed 19 of 29 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. He rushed for 239 yards and three touchdowns on just 18 carries. His sophomore season, he was named the Offensive MVP and 1st-Team All-District 7-5A along with being honorable mention Associated Press Sports Editors Class 5A All-State as he completed 123-of-180 passing for 2,123 yards and 30 touchdowns with just three interceptions.
