Offensive tackle Brian Wallace Jr. was one of the best at his position during the week of practice before the U.S. Army All American game on Saturday.

Arkansas beat out Alabama and about 20 other schools for highly recruited offensive lineman Brian Wallace Jr. of St. Louis Christian Brothers College High.

Wallace, 6-6, 304 pounds, 5.2 seconds in the 40-yard dash, made his announcement Saturday during a live national broadcast of the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio.

National recruiting analyst Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network rates Wallace as a 4-star prospect and said he believes Wallace is one of the top linemen in the country.

“He’s a big-time guy,” said Lemming, who is entering his 36th year of covering national recruiting. “I thought he was a national recruit as soon as I saw him. That’s why I rated him a 4-star recruit. Great feet, he has the length with the quick hands, and he plays aggressively.”
