After picking up a scholarship from Miami nearly a month ago, Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic offensive tackle Andrew Wallace is on a roll. The 6-foot-6, 258-pounder is now up to eight scholarships including new ones from the ACC and SEC.
"I've got eight offers now from Virginia Tech, South Carolina, North Carolina, NC State, Buffalo, Illinois, Miami and Tennessee. The ones from Tennessee, UNC, South Carolina and Virginia Tech came in the past couple weeks.
"I'm also hearing that Vanderbilt is talking about offering soon too."
Meanwhile, plenty of colleges are staying in contact with Wallace in hopes of offering in the near future.
"Clemson is pretty interested and I'm going to their camp on the 14th," he said. "Wake Forest is interested too along with Marshall. They're all telling me to come to camp so they can see what I'm like before offering."
Besides Clemson, the Carolina tackle plans to head to Wake Forest this weekend for camp and then North Carolina State next weekend.
"I'm going to try to get to a few others, possibly Virginia Tech and Tennessee sometime too."
At this time, North Carolina is the team to beat for Wallace.
"I went to UNC's camp this past Saturday and really liked what was up there," he said. "I think coach Davis is going to turn things around and it's pretty exciting. As soon as I arrived, I talked to coach Davis in his office. The conversation with him went very well. He asked how things are going and everything. He seems like a good coach that has a lot of history under his belt and a lot of championships, I like him. I'd say they are on top now, but things could change once I visit other schools."
With at least an early favorite, is Wallace considering a decision anytime soon?
"I'm going to wait and see what all the programs have to offer," he said. "I want to take my official visits. At the earliest I'd like to decide by the end of the summer and with visits it may go into the season a bit."
Obviously still very much open to other schools, Wallace discussed what he wants in a college.
"Of course I want a good team, a championship team because I haven't really been apart of that," he said. "That is basically it. I'm still undecided on my education and location doesn't matter at all."
