The Boiling Springs Bulldogs aren't having a spectacular season on the hardwood thus far but there's a huge ray of sunshine for the program in 2012 PG Jordan Wallace. The Bulldogs record stands at 7-9 currently but it's their 5'10 160 pound point guard who is creating a stir with his promising play. SCPrepNation.com caught up with Wallace to talk hoops and recruiting as he's the next player to be featured in our "UP NEXT" series.
Jordan Wallace may only be 5'10 160 pounds but it's his court savvy that has opened eyes early on for Boiling Springs. Considering that the sophomore is currently averaging 16 points and 5 assists per game things continue to progress for the 2012 standout. We asked Wallace just what aspects of his game are his bread and butter at this juncture in his career and he responded, "Driving to the basket, shooting the pullup jumper, finishing at the rim, and my man on man defense are probably my biggest strengths right now."
While most sophomores struggle with consistency Wallace continues to pile up steady numbers for his squad. Asked about one of his most memorable performances this year Wallace mentioned a matchup with a normally tough AAA squad.
"My best game was against Clinton. I had 20 points and 10 assists. I think I played really good in the clutch but we ended up losing by one."
Playing on the AAAA level though the 2012 prospect sees some of the very best the area has to offer on a nightly basis. He shared with us some of his toughest opponents so far this season.
His eyes are still on the prize though as Wallace is hoping to help Boiling Springs make it to the playoffs this season.
While it's still extremely early in the recruiting process one area program has already started showing heavy interest in the budding Boiling Springs star.
"I've heard from USC Upstate so far. I've visited them and I liked it a lot."
Jordan says he'll be paying close attention to location, atmosphere, and coaching staffs while looking at potential colleges.
