Wallace names his favorites & sets visits

Three star Kentucky TE prospect has a list of his top 4 schools and all of them will likely receive a visit. Come see what he has to say about each of his top four schools and what will factor into his final decision.

Three star TE prospect has Georgia Tech as the leader in his top four schools list that also has Wake Forest, Colorado, and Rutgers in the running. Come see what he has to say about each of his top four schools and what will factor into his final decision.

Tight end prospect Ryan Wallace has Georgia Tech as his favorite school out of his top four that also has Wake Forest, Colorado, and Rutgers. "It's a really good school," he said. "It's remotely close to home, I went to their campus and felt like I fit right in. I've talked with tight end coach Jeep Hunter and he's from Kentucky, knows the area well, and is a good guy."

He plans on going for his official visit to Georgia Tech on Jan. 11.

With Wake Forest, the Bowling Green high school tight end has a good relationship with his recruiter who's good friends with his dad.

The three star recruit has his official visit with Rutgers set up for Dec. 14. He did have some positive things to say about the Knights.

"Right now I haven't been able to go up to the school," Wallace said. "They started going after me a little late, but I want to go up there and see the school. Tight ends coach Joe Susan calls me every week and he seems very knowledgeable. He's a good guy and if I went there I feel like I would have fun."

The 6-foot-4 230 pounder said distance from home wouldn't be a big concern to him because he also likes Colorado, which is far away.

"I would like to go somewhere close, but I wouldn't be able to go home much anyway with football," he said. "I have the same mindset with Colorado as I do with Rutgers. It's a beautiful campus. They have a business like approach, they are like a family, and have a lot of young players."

When decision time comes, having opportunities after college will weigh heavily on his final choice. "I want to go to a place where I can get a great education," he said.

He also wants to go to a place where he feels comfortable with the players and the coaching staff. With regards to playing time he had this to say, "It's always a factor. Rutgers talked to me about their tight end situation and that I would be able to play immediately. Same thing with Georgia Tech. Colorado uses its tight end a lot, they run a lot of two tight end sets."

Wallace is ranked No. 28 by Scout. He reports a 3.7 core GPA and a 23 ACT.
