Media heaps praise on Trevin Wallace following pledge to UK

“Trevin Wallace’s film is the most impressive UK signee tape that I’ve ever evaluated.”

UK Athletics

The Kentucky Wildcats received a major commitment on Wednesday from four-star linebacker Trevin Wallace.

Wallace is a consensus four-star recruit and is ranked No. 35 overall nationally by 247 Sports and is No. 140 nationally via 247 Sports Composite.

The Georgia native picked the Cats but also had offers from the Auburn Tigers, Georgia Bulldogs, Florida Gators, Tennessee Volunteers, Oklahoma Sooners, and LSU Tigers.

Wallace has been a player that can do it all as he has taken snaps on both sides of the ball. However, he is going to fill a much-needed spot on the Kentucky defense as the linebacker position has become a little thin heading into 2021 with Jamin Davis off to the NFL.

247’s Gabe Brooks evaluated Wallace and gave him a comparison to former LSU linebacker and current Baltimore Ravens rising star Patrick Queen.

KSR writer and former Kentucky quarterback Freddie Maggard said Wallace’s tape is the best he’s ever seen from a Kentucky football recruit.
