The Texas Longhorns are very intrigued with Bo Wallace, a junior college quarterback.
According to a source within the Texas Program, Bo Wallace, the NJCAA Offensive Player of the Year, has not been offered a scholarship by the Longhorns yet. Wallace is a 6-foot-5, 215-pound East Mississippi Community College player. He is tentatively scheduled to make an official visit to Austin this weekend. He received an offer from Mississippi State this week and is currently visiting Indiana, then plans on visiting Baylor, then the University of Texas. Mack Brown has stated that he would like to have three quarterbacks this spring and four by the start of fall camp. Texas will bring in four-star recruit Connor Brewer this spring and dual-threat talent Jalen Overstreet in the summer.
Wallace graduated from EMCC in December with the intent of enrolling at a school and participating in spring practice. He set NJCAA single-season records for passing yards (4,606) and touchdown passes (53) this fall. Wallace began his career at Arkansas State, but the Pulaski, Tenn., native transferred in 2010 after sitting out his first season. He’ll be a redshirt sophomore this fall with three years of eligibility. Wallace capped his impressive debut year with MVP honors in East Mississippi’s 55-47 victory over Arizona Western College in the NJCAA championship game on Dec. 3. He threw for 486 yards and seven touchdowns on 31-of-44 passing in that finale.
Stephens, the EMCC coach stated, “He’s going to go someplace that gives him the best education and the best football. He’s got a real good demeanor. Never gets too high, never gets too low. His ability to read coverages and know where to go with the ball is really, really good, and he does a real good job of preparing himself for ballgames.”
