An under the radar forward with tremendous upside in the 2023 class who remains available is DJ Wallace. The 6’9” forward has continued to greatly improve his game throughout his high school career to be ready to make plenty of noise in his senior season that is now underway. 

In the young season Wallace is already showing some of that great upside averaging 18.3 points, 5 rebounds, 3.3 blocks per game to have them out to a perfect 4-0 record to date for Hoffman Estates High School (IL). Before his standout play at the high school level, he was doing it on the grassroots level for Greater Purpose Athletics. “My season with GPA went really well. It started off a little slow but as the season progressed and I got more used to the new role, position I was playing at, it went up from there,” Wallace said. 

“I have a well-rounded game,” Wallace said about his play on the court. “I can pretty much play every position and I can for sure guard every position, including the point guard position. I know that whatever a coach ask’s me to do, I’ll do it.”

With his size, length, and versatile game, Wallace has continued to draw interest from a wide range of college coaches. He has several athletic offers from division three programs but with his development has started to receive interest from several division two and NAIA programs. 

For his future school, Wallace is looking for, “A place I can call home and a team I can call my family. There means nothing more to me that a college I can feel safe at every night, feeling like home, or have teammates that I can call my brothers after getting to know them.” The recruitment of Wallace will be an interesting one to follow with his great upside as we move deeper into the season.
