Wallace is on the verge of more offers

Defensive end Dalonte Wallace out of Greenbelt (Md.) Eleanor Roosevelt holds offers from four schools. More colleges appear to be on the verge of offering the 6-foot-0, 220-pounder once they see more of him this season.
"Things are at a bit of a standstill," he said. "A lot of colleges are interested in seeing my first couple of games this season. A few schools like Wake Forest, Illinois, Boston College, Syracuse and North Carolina.
"Basically they all say the same thing. They want to see me stand up and play in space. They know I can pass rush, but they need to know I can standup at the next level. If I produce and do what I'm supposed to it should be a done deal."
If those programs offered Wallace, how much would that change his recruitment?
"It definitely would change things for me," he said. "I'd have a lot more options. I'm not taking anything from the schools that have offered, but it would open things up."
The two-star prospect currently holds offers from Akron, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan and JMU.
At this time, Wallace claims there are no leaders for his services.
"I'm not at a point to narrow down my list. Once I see what happens then I'll take my officials."
Practice has just begun for Eleanor Roosevelt.
"We had our first practice yesterday and we're ready to bring back our dominance," he stated. "I would say I've improved a lot. I'm a smarter football player coming into this season because I'm working hard. I'm also bigger, stronger and faster.
Wallace opens the season on September 8th.
