BC leads for Virginia ATH

Jordan Wallace made the trip from Virginia to Boston at the beginning of last weekend and he had a chance to experience life at BC with plenty of other juniors at the recruiting event hosted by the Eagles.

It was Wallace's first trip to Boston College and he came away with a good idea of what the Eagles are all about.

Wallace and the other juniors had an opportunity to tour the campus and meet with some of the academic personnel at the school.

"I talked to Coach Mike Siravo and I really liked it up there," the 6-foot-1, 180-pound athlete said this week.

"They pretty much told me to keep working hard and he said he'll be down at my school to evaluate me later."

What stuck out about BC?

"The campus is really nice, actually," he said. "The campus and the buildings were nice."

Academics are always a big selling point when Boston College is recruiting someone and that will play into the Eagles' favor with Wallace.

"I want to major in business," he said. "Academics are the biggest factor. I'm looking for a good four-year college because I want to get that degree."

Win Homer, Wallace's elder teammate, will be joining the Eagles in the fall and would like to see Wallace up there one day.

"He talks really highly of the school and thinks I should go up there. We talk a lot. We're pretty close," Wallace said.

So far schools have just recruited Wallace as an athlete, declining to give a specific position that they see him fitting in at.

Right now he plays running back and wide receiver for Christchurch.

Last fall Wallace made the short trip to Blacksburg to take in a Virginia Tech game. He plans on visiting Penn on February 18.

As for a favorite?

"It's probably BC," he concluded.
