Wallace headed to Boulder?

After Ryan Wallace decided to decommit from Louisville in January, he informed Rivals.com that he leaning towards signing with either Colorado or Wake Forest.

Which program did the 6-foot-4, 220-pound tight end from Bowling Green (Ken.) High choose?

"I am going to sign with Colorado," Wallace explained. "I think Colorado is definitely the place for me. After I took my first visit out there in September, I found myself comparing all the other schools I visited to Colorado. And when I looked at everything, I really felt like Colorado is the place I need to be."

"It was really stressful towards the end when I committed to Louisville and I decided to decommit because that is an in-state school and I have been a Louisville fan my whole life. But being a fan of a team and wanting to go to a college somewhere are two different things.

"Colorado has a great coaching staff and a bright future. It is a program that I think is going to have a lot of success going forward. And it is a good school academically, as well."

Tight ends coach Kent Riddle was responsible for his recruitment from the Buffaloes' staff.

"I went on my visit to Colorado when they played Florida State and I got to see a lot of how they use their tight ends," Wallace said. "I talk to Ryan Deehan all the time, we're pretty good friends, and I think both of us will fit in well there."

Wallace helped Bowling Green High to a 13-2 record last fall. He hauled in 48 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns.

He finished his four-year high school career with 72 catches for 1,016 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Wallace's high school teammate and friend D.L. Moore has been verbally committed to South Carolina since mid-December. But the three-star wide receiver is still looking at Colorado.

"Right now he doesn't know where he is going to go," Wallace said of Moore. "He is either going to South Carolina or Colorado. He is just really confused right now."
