BSD’s recruiting staff sat down for a roundtable on each prospect Penn State signed in the 2021 class. Coming in at No. 9 was three-star wide receiver Harrison Wallace.
What makes you excited about Harrison Wallace?
“Wallace brings with him a great combination of athleticism and fluidness. Wallace is a former basketball prospect who *really* pops athletically on the court, and that began to translate over to the football field during his senior season. He’s a bit raw as a prospect — most of his routes are pretty rudimentary — but I really like the makeup and qualities of Wallace. He actually kind of reminds me of KeAndre Lambert-Smith. He’s not quite as technically sound and doesn’t have the short-area quickness, but profiles as having a bit more down the field upside and a more projectable frame.” --Patrick
What worries you about Harrison Wallace?
“Wallace was excellent in high school but it came against so-so competition. This is always concerning. He’s also newly focused on football, as he was a basketball prospect for quite some time, so the polish isn’t quite there yet. Otherwise, there are not many red flags about Wallace. He has good size (6-1, 180 pounds) and is a plus athlete with terrific explosiveness, go check out his basketball highlights. Wallace should be a good one for Taylor Stubblefield and the Nittany Lions.” --Marty
Do you think Harrison Wallace will be redshirted next season? Around what point of his career do you think he pushes for meaningful playing time?
“Wallace will likely redshirt assuming Jahan Dotson returns to Penn State (editor’s note: Dotson is in fact returning). But the chance for playing time is there, especially if guys like Malick Meiga and Jaden Dottin aren’t progressing.” --Clay
What do you think is the most realistic outcome for Harrison Wallace: depth provider, starter, multi-year starter, all-conference, or all-american?
Marty: Multi-year starter
Patrick: Multi-year starter
