“We’re looking at where we will get the most playing time,” Wallace said. “I am also looking at what position I would be playing.”
Although he is a quarterback, Tracin Wallace can also play on the defensive side of the ball.
“If I can’t play quarterback, I can play defensive back, but I just want to be on the field,” he said.
Although it is early in his recruitment, Wallace has received offers from Tulsa and Vanderbilt. Wallace knows that he will need to continue to succeed in high school if he wants success at a strong academic university.
“I want to keep my GPA over 3.5,” he said. “On the field, I want to play my hardest and improve my numbers each season.”
Wallace had the opportunity to talk with coach Mathis, and he had a good first impression.
“Coach Mathis is a really cool guy. He’s funny and seems like a good guy to chill with.”
The rebuilding process on the Hilltop has just started, but Wallace believes the Mustangs have the right staff to turn things around quickly.
“I really like the excitement that comes with the new coaches,” he said. “They could be close to the top by the time I graduate high school.”
As his recruitment process picks up, Wallace wants to build a stronger relationship with the coaching staff, and he is impressed that the staff is staying local for recruiting.
“It says something about Texas football,” he said. “By staying local you get to know people and become a family.”
