Revisiting Wallace’s College Career

Wallace played at Kentucky from 2021 to 2023 and saw action as early as his freshman season.

He was named to the All-SEC Freshman Team in 2021 as he saw action in 12 games with one start at Mississippi State. He recorded 32 total tackles with four tackles for loss, two sacks, a forced fumble, a pass breakup, and a quarterback hurry. Wallace was named SEC Freshman of the Week after charting a career-high 12 tackles, including two for a loss, in his first collegiate start at outside linebacker at Mississippi State.

Wallace saw action in 12 games as a second-year player in 2022 with six starts, facing Youngstown State, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Louisville, and Iowa. He missed the team’s opening game due to injury.

His sophomore year saw some statistical improvement, Wallace totaled 54 tackles (fifth-most on the team), 5.5 tackles for loss (third-most on the team), 2.5 sacks, two interceptions (team-high-tying), and a QB hit. He got his first career interception against South Carolina.

His junior season saw Wallace start in all 12 games played, only missing action in a game versus Missouri with an injury. He was ranked 13th in the SEC in tackles per game (6.67), named SEC Defensive Player of the Week, and led the UK defense in total tackles with a career-high-tying 12 in the season opener versus Ball State.

Wallace’s Potential in the NFL

Pro Football Network draft analyst Ian Cummings believes Wallace is one of the top prospects at his position, especially for teams needing a dynamic WILL linebacker with immediate coverage and blitz utility.

“Wallace’s energy as a two-phase player underpins his game, and his relentless motor permeates to his teammates on every down,” Cummings wrote. “You always want your linebackers to be the heart and soul of a defense, but Wallace takes it a step further — setting the tone with his confidence and willingness to impose physicality.

“For teams needing a dynamic WILL linebacker with immediate coverage and blitz utility, he’s worthy of early-to-mid Day 2 consideration.”
