Wallace talks Texas visit

Quick Note: Demarco after Texas’ win over Rice



Wallace talks Texas visit

2016 four-star safety/running back Christian Wallace attended Texas’ game against Rice on Saturday.

Wallace, a 6-foot-3, 211-pound senior, said he enjoyed his time on the Forty Acres and he liked what he saw on the field.

“My experience at the game was good,” Wallace said. “They did better than they did last week.”

He also enjoyed his interaction with fans.

“The fans were really nice to me. I liked that,” Wallace said.

Although the Longhorn defense gave up 462 yards to the Owls, Wallace said he thought the defense played better than the offense.

“I think the defense is alright but the offense needs to pick it up a little bit,” Wallace said.

During his visit Saturday, he had an opportunity to talk to Head Coach Charlie Strong, Defensive Coordinator Vance Bedford and Defensive Backs Coach Chris Vaughn. He said he had productive conversations with the coaches.

“Our conversations went well,” he said. “We just talked about my season.”

He had good things to report to the coaches about his season. Wallace said his season has been going well so far. He said he has recorded six touchdowns this season.

Wallace said Texas is currently in his top three with Oregon State and Mississippi State.

He is the No. 4 safety in Texas, No. 11 in the country at his position and checks in at No. 188 in the Scout 300.

Quick Note: Demarco after Texas’ win over Rice

2016 three-star outside linebacker and Longhorn commit Demarco Boyd had one message to send after Texas’ 42-28 win over Rice.

All I have to say is it’s one game at a time,” Boyd said.

Boyd, who was at Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday, said he loved the atmosphere while he was at the game.

The 6-foot, 220-pound linebacker has been committed to Texas since Jan. 30th. Boyd is the No. 9 outside linebacker in Texas and No. 10 in Scout’s Midland region.

In a previous interview, Boyd said he hoped to see his brother Kris Boyd and the freshmen class shine during the season.

“I hope the freshman get in there and really improve, build up together and learn how to work together and have each other’s back,” he previously said. “[And] make coach proud.”


Today’s edition of Tweet’Em features tweets from Texas tight end coach Jeff Traylor, linebacker Malik Jefferson, 2016 Longhorn wide receiver commits Collin Johnson and Tren’Davian Dickson, 2017 tight end Major Tennison and 2018 quarterback Jared Mayden.
