Sperry (Okla.) offensive lineman Chris Wallace has not received quite the publicity of other players in his home state but the 6-foot-4, 310-pound prospect is hoping that changes soon.
Recently the Tulsa-area standout earned his first offer from a Conference USA program after taking an unofficial visit to that school.
"I was offered by Tulsa," Wallace said. "It was a few weeks ago; I don't know the exact day. They invited me over there and then, after they showed me around the facilities, they offered me. Their facilities and campus are very nice. The school is very nice too.

"I talked to a couple of coaches. I talked to Denver Johnson and Bill Blankenship. I was actually surprised a bit at the offer to be honest. It was nice for sure."
In addition to the Golden Hurricane, Wallace is receiving interest from some other programs as well.
"I don't know for sure (if any other schools are close to offering)," he said, "but Kansas is really interested in me. I don't really know about Oklahoma right now. I've been up to Kansas too. It went great. They had a junior day/spring day kind of thing."
Wallace does not have any more camps or unofficial visits lined up for the summer but he will be making trips once the season starts.
"I want to take my official visits," he said. "I plan to visit Kansas, Tulsa to get to know them better and Oklahoma. Those are three off the top of my head."
Wallace says he has a few favorites at the moment as well.
"The three I mentioned - Tulsa, Kansas and Oklahoma - those three schools are stand out to me right now," he said.
