On the Hoof: Wallace has the prototypical middle linebacker body. He also has a very powerful-looking base, which is where he gets his strength. His body structure is similar to Florida linebacker Jon Bostic.
Needs Improvement: He is very upright at the point of attack, and must improve his ability to turn his hips. Wallace needs to work on his flexibility.
Most Impressive: Very powerful linebacker that can knock smaller backs to the ground when they try to get out of the backfield. He also is not afraid of contact, which is a trait that is almost impossible to teach.
Conclusion: Should be able to play at around 235 pounds with the size and strength to handle the scuffling that goes on between the tackles. Wallace will also excel on coverage teams. He should end up being a solid two-year starter at the next level.
