According to former Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic head coach Maurice Flowers, his talented offensive tackle Andrew Wallace picked up his first offer. The 6-foot-5, 267-pounder picked it up from an ACC power.
"Coach Michael Barrow came in to school last week and offered him a full scholarship," Flowers said. "They had to make sure to see what he's like on tape and after that he said Andrew has the kind of size they want in Miami."
Did Wallace say much about the offer?
"He's ecstatic," he said. "He knows the history and it's great to have a first offer from such a storied program. I know he's excited, but ready to keep working hard.
"From here, I'd really anticipate a lot more offers coming in. He did well down in Athens and his tape is just starting to circulate."
Flowers discussed what makes Wallace stick out on the line.
"He's a dominant player with great feet," he said. "He's what you want in an offensive tackle. He's tall at 6-foot-5 with long arms and has great strength. He can really move and that is probably his best attribute as we pulled him out for counters and screens."
This summer the North Carolina lineman plans to attend camps at North Carolina, NC State and Miami.
Meanwhile, 6-foot-1, 225-pound linebacker Jared Seate continues to garner interest.
"He hasn't gotten his first offer, but Buffalo is getting close," he said. "I know the ACC schools are real hot on Jared along with some MAC like Ball State and Buffalo.
"He did a great job in Athens and is looking forward to a terrific senior year."
On the field, Seate has plenty of ability.
"He's everything you want in a linebacker," he said. "He models himself after Dan Morgan and does a good job. He carries his game like that; he's all over the field and plays with a lot of emotion. That's probably one of his best strengths. He's also a great athlete."
