Bo Wallace's EMCC Highlights
East Mississippi Community College quarterback Bo Wallace, a Junior College All-American (sound familiar?), committed to Ole Miss today per OMSpirit's Ben Garrett. Wallace, a 6'5" 215 pound prospect, threw for 4,400+ yards and 50+ touchdowns on the season as he led EMCC to a Junior College national championship.
Coming out of Pulaski, Tennessee, Wallace originally signed with Arkansas State where he was coached by then-OC Hugh Freeze. He sat behind Sun Belt offensive player of the year Ryan Alpin at quarterback, though, which prompted his transfer to junior college. After this past season's junior college successes, Wallace was recruited by Mississippi State, Baylor, Nebraska, and Texas along with our Ole Miss.
If you listened to this week's Red Cup Radio, you heard a discussion about where we project Bo Wallace in next fall's depth chart. Simply, we think he's a shoe-in to start for the Rebels due to his size, experience, and familiarity with Hugh Freeze's offensive scheme.
