Deuce Wallace talks Vanderbilt offer and more

It has been a slow process so far for Sevier Co. (TN) quarterback Deuce Wallace but within the past two months he has seen an increase of offers, including Vanderbilt.

The Commodores has been on Wallace’s radar for quite some time now and last week, Vanderbilt finally extended an official offer to the East Tennessee signal caller.

Vanderbilt has been viewed as a serious player for Wallace for a while now and now that he has an offer from them, they will remain a strong contender for the 3-star going forward.

“I have camped and visited Vanderbilt multiple times now and on my latest visit to see them, I received an official offer from them and it’s a very exciting to offer to have,” said Wallace.

On Febuary 26th, Wallace was in Nashville for an unofficial visit with Vanderbilt. That day was the first time Wallace had met Commodores offensive coordinator/quarterback’s coach Andy Ludwig.

Wallace had been in conversations with Ludwig for several weeks before his visit to Nashville. After leaving Vanderbilt last week, Wallace came away quite impressed with Coach Ludwig and he see’s a bright future in the Commodores offense with Ludwig running the show.

“Meeting Coach Ludwig in person on my visit was something I was looking forward to because I have heard nothing but great things about him and how he runs college offenses,” said Wallace. “He was very impressive talking football with me. He definitely knows what he is talking about and I like the style of offense he plans to run. I think bringing in Coach Ludwig was a great move for the Vanderbilt program. I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with Coach Ludwig and the rest of the staff.”

Look for Wallace to make it back to campus in April for the Commodores last Junior Day event of 2015.

“Right now on my schedule is to come back to Vanderbilt on April 18th and as of today, those are still my plans,” he said. “I have been to campus multiple times in the past and it’s always a new experience for me everytime I make it to Nashville. I really like the city a lot and Vanderbilt’s campus is really nice as well. I enjoy my visits to Vandy everytime I go.”

So far Wallace has picked up seven college offers.

Besides Vanderbilt, two other high academic schools standout to Wallace and these three teams could hold an upper hand in his recruitment.

“I really like Northwestern, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest a lot,” Wallace said. “I would say I have the best relationships with those three teams and their coaching staffs. I actually have been talking longer with

Wake Forest but that doesn’t mean they are the leader. I don’t really have a favorite quite yet but I plan to narrow things down pretty soon.”

If you look at expert predictions, Vanderbilt is viewed as the team to beat but in recruiting, things can always change.
