Wallace Returns From Final Official Visit

Bowling Green, Kentucky tight end Ryan Wallace made his fifth and final official visit this past weekend, visiting Wake Forest. Wallace, a 6'5, 230-pound prospect, took the trip to Winston-Salem with his parents and returned impressed with his experience.

In mid-December, Ryan Wallace committed to Louisville in what was then thought to be the end of his recruitment. Wallace has since opened up his recruitment and has let the recruiting process play out. "I'm not committed anywhere right now," Wallace said Monday night. "I felt like I jumped into my commitment real quick and it wasn't right for me."

With that, Wake Forest jumped back into the picture for Wallace along with his other finalists that join Wake and Louisville -- Colorado and Duke. Wallace, who visited Colorado and Louisville officially and has unofficially visited Duke, visited Wake Forest this past weekend. "Well, the first time I visited Wake Forest was the Florida State game and we got in a rush and just saw the game," he said. "This time I got to see the campus. It was a great visit. I enjoyed myself and felt really comfortable with everyone. It went really well."

Still, the Deacs are trailing for Wallace with a week left before he plans to make his decision. "Colorado is my top school right now and then Wake Forest, Louisville, and Duke," he said. "My parents were really impressed with the Wake Forest visit and I was too. UC is coming tomorrow and Duke. Coach Kragthorpe from Louisville is coming on Thursday."

Although Colorado is in front currently, Wallace notes that the Deacs are not out of the picture by any means. "Coloardo, they're the leader in my book but my parents are really high on getting to see me play," he said. "They would like to see me closer so they can come to my games and not have to fly out there. I'll sit down and talk with them and then factor them in and make my decision."

"I've got four great choices I'm picking from," said Wallace, "so either of the places, I'll be fine."
