Following an offer from Miami earlier this month, recruiting has picked up for Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic offensive tackle Andrew Wallace. The 6-foot-6, 258-pounder now claims four offers from the ACC, Big Ten and MAC.
"North Carolina State offered me on Tuesday and I talked to coach Bridge," he said. "They have always been my favorite school and now with new coach Tom O'Brien I think they're going to be pretty good this year. I think they are on their way towards the championship. I also picked up offers from Illinois and Buffalo."
While the Wolfpack are a longtime favorite, Wallace claims there are no leaders.
"I'd say they are all open, I don't have a top school," he said. "I just want a winning football team that can go for a championship. Besides that, I just want somewhere I can get on the field."
So far four schools have offered, but another appears to be close.
"Maryland came back and said they are going to, but I haven't heard from them lately. We'll see what happens."
As for this summer, Wallace plans stop by a few camps.
"I'm going to NC State's in the first week of June," he said. "I'm going to Tennessee's senior day, I believe Wake Forest and North Carolina. That's it from what I know so far."
With a handful of offers already in, is Wallace considering an early decision?
"Not really," he said. "I'm going to wait until at least close to the beginning of the season or maybe into it to see what's all out there. I want to at least go on some official visits."
