Brian Wallace, a 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive tackle from St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers is nearing the finish line of his recruitment.
“The recruiting process for me, at first it was great and then it was real hectic, everybody wanted my attention and I narrowed it down to two schools: Alabama and Arkansas.”
“They both impress me as far as the facilities, educationwise and just the football team in general.”
He says that between the two schools he does not currently have a leader.
“Not really,” Wallace answered. “(It will be) last minute. Everyone will know on Saturday. They both really got what I want, so I don’t really know.”
What was it about the SEC that grabbed his attention?
“From what I have seen over the years it is really competitive and you have to have a lot of heart to play.”
It sounds like he has had a good look at Arkansas, a school that his CBC teammate Armon Watts is committed to.
"(The) environment, me being able to connect with the players, the coaches, really everything," Wallace answered about his personal connection with the Hogs.
Wallace also has a good connection with Alabama, who has been recruiting him for awhile now as well.
"Me and the coaches hit it off real well," Wallace said of the Tide.
He will announce his final intentions on Saturday during the broadcast of the game.
