Oklahoma State lands QB/WR twin duo in major coup

By

A pair of twin brothers among the more celebrated recruits in the state of Texas have headed beyond state boarders in search of an impact, with Oklahoma State landing one of its biggest recruiting coups as a process.

On Monday night, South Hills wide receiver Tylan Wallace, a four-star prospect and one of the top 20 wide receiver prospects and top 20 overall prospects in Texas, committed to Oklahoma State. In the process, he also broke news of the commitment of his twin brother, Tracin Wallace, a three-star quarterback.

The Wallace brothers are the most notable commitments of Oklahoma State’s current six-member Class of 2017. Tylan Wallace will be expected to contribute for the Cowboys from Day 1, while Tracin could compete for playing time after his first season. Oklahoma was long seen as a prohibitive favorite to add Wallace to the Sooners’ traditional strength at the wide out position. That was before Oklahoma State made a push for both brothers, landing the duo in one fell swoop.

While Tylan Wallace continued to build recruiting momentum throughout his junior season, Tracin Wallace missed his junior campaign with a torn ACL, but is expected to return ever stronger for his final high school season.

That’s certainly the hope for Oklahoma State, which will hope to hit the jackpot with both of the Wallace twins, leaving other power conference schools to wonder what could have been.
