Taking a prospect-by-prospect look at Penn State’s 2019 recruiting class.

There may not have been a point in the recruitment of Caedan Wallace where there was a question of if he would pick Penn State or not. Early in his recruitment, Wallace became a Nittany Lion lean following multiple visits to campus. He then committed to the Nittany Lions as part of Blue-White Weekend last spring, never wavering in the months that followed.

Highlights

Scouting Report

Wallace is big, mean, and nasty, aka everything you want in an offensive lineman. He finishes his blocks and punishes defenders while doing so. He is also exceptionally athletic for someone his size (6-foot-5, 295 pounds), showing the footwork and balance to make him a terror when he gets to the second level.

Wallace has an explosive first step when firing out of his stance. He is violent and physical with his initial punch, and has good hand placement once engaged with the defender he is blocking. Like most offensive lineman, Wallace will need a bit of work in pass blocking, but even there, Wallace shows good balance and a solid kickstep.

Outlook

Although Wallace has the length to play right tackle, he is best suited to play on the interior of the offensive line at the collegiate level. Wallace has the tools to be a good tackle, yes, but these tools would make him a potentially elite guard for the Nittany Lions.

Barring something crazy happening, Wallace should redshirt in the fall. However, you should expect to see him use his four games to get his feet wet the way Rasheed Walker did this past season.
