The San Diego State Aztecs picked up a huge verbal commitment in three-star wide receiver Roberto Wallace (6-4, 203, 4.6) from Oceanside, Calif. Landing Wallace gives you an indication of the positive direction the San Diego State program is going.
“Yes Roberto committed to San Diego State,” Richard Enright a family friend said. “I just got off the phone with John Carroll (Oceanside head coach) and he confirmed it for me.”
Wallace is a great pick-up for the Aztecs. He chose San Diego State over offers from Michigan State, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona, ASU, Washington State and Utah.
“Roberto has so much ability, he’s a natural,” Enright said said. “He has God-given talent and I always say you can’t out coach God.”
Enright should know. He is a retired coach who coached on the NFL, collegiate and the high school level.”
“Roberto is such a dominating athlete,” Enright said. “He even plays corner real well and I think he could play safety or corner for the Aztecs if wide receiver doesn’t work out.”
“When Roberto gets riled up,” Enright said. “He really hits.”
Wallace hasn’t been playing football long so his best days on the gridiron are ahead of him.
Originally from Panama, Wallace has traveled a lot because his Dad is in the US military.
One of the reasons San Diego State was able to land Wallace over such formidable competition was the fact that he wanted to stay close to home because of all the traveling around he did when he was younger.
The Aztecs get a player who brings a lot of athletic ability to the table. He can play several positions for SDSU.
Wallace has a great frame and could get even bigger. The Aztecs get a much disciplined player who will see his best days on the football field ahead of him.
“The sky is the limit for Roberto,” Enright said. “There is no telling how good he’s going to be.”
Great get for Tom Craft and the Aztecs.
