Guyer’s Wallace commits to Iowa State

Guyer safety Jordan Wallace recently got his first FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) offer from Iowa State, and after a weekend visit to Ames, Iowa, with his family, Wallace decided to make it official, verbally at least.

It makes perfect sense. After all, Wallace is the second cousin of former All-World Cyclones QB Seneca Wallace, who as a Tech alum, I know all too well from his days of making his personal highlight reel against the Red Raiders.

Wallace is a rangy, lengthy safety who has all the makings of a big, ball-hawk playmaker in the back of the Cyclones’ secondary. Last season as a junior at Guyer, he was a big reason for the Wildcats’ improved secondary, and in turn, improved defense from previous seasons.

As a junior, Wallace had 86 tackles with 10 behind the line of scrimmage and 10 pass breakups.

He said playing in the Big 12 has long been a dream of his.

“It’s pretty awesome because my cousin Seneca went there,” Wallace said. “I get to follow in his footsteps. Big 12 football is what I want to play. I like that style. Growing up in Texas, that’s what you know.”
