Rebels line up official visit with tight end

Ryan Wallace (TE, Bowling Green, KY) - Scout.com's #26 nationally rated tight end was down to four schools, but that list has been trimmed down to three, for now.

"Right now I am down to Ole Miss, Kentucky, and Stanford," stated Ryan Wallace. "But I have been in contact with a few new schools over the last couple of days. I have been in contact with Rutgers, Boston College, and Colorado is about to offer. Colorado is a good academic school. I would like to check them out."

Could a visit with Colorado be in the works?

"They were suppose to show their head coach my tape to get an approval for an offer, but I am going to go on an official visit up there for the Florida State game on September 29th. I set up an official visit to Ole Miss on September 22nd when they play Florida, and I am going to Stanford on October 12th when they play TCU."

Wallace said he wanted to make a decision before his season started, but that has now been pushed back.

"I thought I was going to be able to do it before the season started, but visiting all of these schools over the summer got me even more confused. I think I will be able to make my decision before the playoffs start, at least I hope I can (laugh)."

Bowling Green High school has been practicing for a couple of weeks, and Wallace can already notice a difference.

"My blocking has gotten a whole lot better, a whole lot better."

And one more thing sticks out for Ryan.

"It just seems that my knowledge of the game is a big factor. I feel like I know a lot more about the game of football than everybody I play against. It is almost like I am another coach on the field."

It is no coincendence that Ryan comes from a coaching family

"Yea, being around the game for like 15 years and having my dad as the head coach has made me a whole lot more knowledgeable about the game. He teaches me so much stuff. He has been a teacher for me."

Does Ryan hope to one day be a coach too?

"Yes, I a plan on getting a GA job when I get my degree, but I am ready to finish out my playing career first."
