Wallace plays waiting game

Jonathan Wallace of Phenix City (Ala.) Central is not bothered by the fact that while other quarterbacks in the junior class have piled up the offers, he has landed only one.
"After sitting down and looking at it, this past year was my first year as a starter," Wallace said. "Some of the guys that have 20 offers have played longer than I have. I'm not mad, but it's something I use to motivate myself. I have to be able to show colleges I'm a good player and can play the position of quarterback."
Thus far, only Arkansas State has offered.
But Wallace, the quarterback MVP at last Sunday's Rivals.com/VTO Sports Alabama Elite 100 Camp, suspects more schools eventually will pull the trigger. Auburn is one program from which he said he is getting a good vibe.
"I'm going there [Wednesday] for one of their practices," Wallace said. "Then I'm going there again Saturday for their spring game. I want to say [they might offer]. I've been in contact with them a lot. It's right up the street from me. I'm thinking Auburn more than everybody else may offer me."
Wallace said he also is hearing from Clemson, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA and Vanderbilt. Several of those teams plan to attend one of his spring practices, he said.
As of Tuesday night, Wallace had no visits scheduled after this weekend.
According to the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder, Arkansas State has impressed him.
"I haven't been up there for a visit yet, but we have two guys from the previous year at my school that signed with them," Wallace said. "Arkansas State offered me the day after signing day. I've been talking to one of the coaches up there. We've been talking ever since then. They've been showing me a lot of love."
