Marquis Wallace Visit Recap

Marquis Wallace was well familiar with everything at West Virginia before he took his official visit this past weekend, but he still learned a few new things about the WVU campus.

"I got to see a lot more of the campus, and I got the chance to talk to some people in my major," said Marquis Wallace, who was one of five committed players to take their official visits this weekend. "I'm going to major in business management, and I learned more about the classes I'll be taking and the basics of what I'll be doing in them. I've seen and learned a lot about the school on my visits there before, but this was something new."

Wallace, who is one of the linchpins of West Virginia's offensive line recruiting class, was one of five visitors last weekend that have already committed to WVU, and he said that everyone he met still seemed solidly in WVU's camp.

"We got to talk and meet with each other during the weekend, and everyone got along really well," the well-spoken lineman said. "We didn't all get together all at once, but we got to meet each other and talk, and we had a good time on the visit."

Wallace's host was defensive end Will Clarke, and the Pittsburgh area native proved to be a good guide.

"Will showed me around, and told me about everything they do, both on the field and in class," Wallace explained. "He told me about their normal week, and what happens, and he was good to talk with. He gave me a good picture of what it's like there."

Wallace also discussed meeting some of his potential future teammates.

"I talked with Troy Gloster, the linebacker, and he is solid," the massive blocker said. "I met Adrian Coxson, the wide receiver from Washington, and he looked like he was having a good visit too. This was the first time I got to meet Jeremy Johnson, and I got to know him some. He was good to talk to."


  • With all of the recruiting changes over the past few days, Wallace noted that he and teammate Trey Johnson were still solid to West Virginia, and not considering any other schools or taking ay other visits.

  • Wallace said he is making good progress toward qualifying, and with a good spring semester he should be on track to do so.
