Tristen Wallace Leaves Ohio State Recruiting Class, Commits to Oregon

Tristen Wallace is now an Oregon Duck commitment.

Three years ago, Ohio State flipped DeSoto, Texas athlete Dontre Wilson from Oregon to the Buckeyes late in the 2013 recruiting cycle. Tonight, the Ducks returned the favor and have received a commitment from Tristen Wallace, a four-star athlete in the 2016 class who committed to Urban Meyer in March.


Committed to to Oregon. God is good. Go Ducks !

Wallace's place in the Buckeyes' recruiting class has been the subject of much debate lately, stemming from a decision he made two weeks ago when he let the Buckeyes know he was interested in playing a position other than quarterback.

Ohio State, who saw Wallace's potential at quarterback, let Wallace know that they'd not be interested in him at a different spot and both sides began exploring secondary options. The 6-foot-3, 228-pounder was rumored to be visiting both UCLA and Oregon this weekend and, as you can see above, he's now a future Duck.
