A Deeper Look at Fort Worth Twins Who Committed To Oklahoma State

OSU does it's thing, grabbing a pretty decent set of kids.


If you can get one really good thing you should. If you can get two of the same thing, with one being a slight risk, then why not?

That might have been what Mike Gundy was thinking, as Oklahoma State has taken a quarterback/wide receiver duo out of Ft. Worth, Texas, from South Hills High School.

The receiver, Tylan Wallace, stands at six-feet tall and weighs in at 179, according to his ESPN bio. Tylan runs a 4.58 40-yard-dash and is a four-star(ESPN) with a .9411 rating (247). In 2015, he had over 1,400 yards receiving and 20 touchdowns. Here's his Hudl film:

Tracin Wallace is not rated on ESPN, which is partially due to injuring his ACL in the early goings of the 2015 season. Wallace was a four star at the time of the Scout report but has since dropped to three on that site and maintained a three star/ .8489 rating on 247. He's not as hyped or highly touted as his twin brother, but did have over 2,000 yards and reeled in 30 touchdowns while only giving up three interceptions in the 2014 season, all while maintaining over 1,300 rushing yards. Here's his Hudl:

Something interesting to look at is the two players offer sheets. Virginia, Oklahoma State and Houston are arguably the biggest offers Tracin has. Although Tylan has offers from the following:

  • Notre Dame
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • Arizona State
  • Kansas State
  • Virginia
  • Michigan
The list they have in common isn't too small. It includes OSU, Virginia, Houston, Middle Tennessee State, UNT, Tulsa, SMU and Vanderbilt. Looking at this list, you can make out Virginia, Houston and OSU as the favorites if the two wish to play with each other. Between those three, you'd have to think OSU is probably the best option for a quarterback/receiver duo to come to and possibly make a run toward the league together at their respective positions. This isn't the first time OSU has tried to expose relationships like this, if that is what they have done. It seemingly worked out with Marcus Smart and Phil Forte and seems to be in the works with Mason Rudolph's younger brother, Logan.

Either way, it certainly is interesting to see Oklahoma State get an early commitment from two seemingly very good players. Now, only if they can keep them from a bigger school doing the same.
