Signing Day Extra: Aaron Wallace

Name: Aaron Wallace
Position: Outside Linebacker
Rank: 40(S) / 66(R) / 106(E)
Positional Need: 3/10
Outlook: UCLA hauled in an outstanding linebacker class last season, but Wallace is a player that many inside the program are hyped up about.

Wallace committed to UCLA in late July over Texas A&M and Washington, though he was getting interest from Stanford, USC and Cal as well.

Wallace is a good player with a solid frame, but he needs a little more nasty in him, and he worked on that last decision.

UCLA has so much young linebacker talent though – between Jordan Zumwalt and redshirt freshmen Aramide Olaniyan and Eric Kendricks, who Clark Lea raves about – that Wallace should be able to develop over time.

Immediate Impact: 1/10 – Wallace will almost certainly redshirt.

Overall Impact: 6/10 – Wallace looks like he’s about 25 pound from being an absolute beast.

Notable Quotables:
“I just really like UCLA. It’s a good fit for me in terms of the education they offer and how close it is to home for my family to see me play. Playing time did play a factor, just a little bit in the decision, and I was told I’d have a good chance to play early depending on what (linebacker) Akeem Ayers (redshirt junior) does if he ends up deciding to go to the NFL. I also either want to study business or something in the medical field – or possibly even sports journalism.” – Wallace to Scout.com’s Allen Wallace in July

    Thanks for the vids, Jon. Aaron’s footwork and balance are good. He has speed for coverage. The question will be, “Does he hit hard and does he bring his man to a sudden stop?”

    There are a number of SD guys who think this guy is overrated. He looks good in combines and has the size, but when you watch him play, you dont leave very impressed.

    Like he wasn’t even on the field. Oh yeah! He missed his entire senior season with ankle surgery.
