Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic is home to two potential Division I prospects in 2008. One is linebacker Jared Seate and the other is 6-foot-5, 250-pound offensive tackle Andrew Wallace.
"Andrew is already starting to get interest from several ACC schools like Duke and North Carolina State," Olympic head coach Maurice Flowers said. "Right now he's just starting to get exposure since he's just a junior, but he'll be a good lineman in the state next year."
Flowers believes there's a lot of potential to be had in his all-conference offensive tackle.
"He has all the strengths you look for," he said. "He knows how to get out on screens, drive block, pull, you name it he can do it and his best blocking comes in the fourth quarter.
"He's in outstanding condition and has a great work ethic just like Jared. They are best friends and workout buddies. As far as his weight, I anticipate his frame to put on at least 20 to 25 pounds and keep the same speed he's at. He's got a very tall, broad frame and his father is 6-foot-6, 300-pounds. He'll keep growing."
At this time, Wallace has no favorites.
However, does the close bond between Seate and Wallace mean they'd like to play together in college?
"It's something they'll discuss I'm sure, but I know they'll do what's best for each of them academically and athletically."
