Jahlil Wallace: 2015 Guard Adjusts to Move; Talks Interests

From the Bronx, New York to Decatur, Georgia, 2015 prospect Jahlil Wallace was on the move this summer.

Wallace will attend Columbia H.S. (GA) this upcoming year, leaving Wings Academy (NY) with his sights on a new chapter down south.

“My summer was decent,” Wallace explained. “Even though I didn’t play much because I was in the process of moving to Georgia.”

The switch has kept Wallace on point though with his high school career, as he looks forward to playing his game and improving his overall skill set. “I’m looking forward to playing my normal game as being a facilitator and being able to take care of the ball and score when needed. My goal is to win a state championship,” Wallace said via text.

While transitioning, the class of 2015 representative continues to receive interest from a number of collegiate programs, ranging from both mid-major and high-major schools.

The 5-foot-9 guard listed Villanova, Cincinnati, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Manhattan, Radford, Albany, Cal-Poly, and Western Carolina, when asked.

Wallace’s former teammate at Wings Academy, Mohamed Touray, also took the time to speak with Rant Sports. For an update on Touray, click here. “Mohamed’s a good kid, we played with each other last year,” Wallace said of his former teammate.

With more interests coming in for Wallace, the point guard remains confidence about his own future, even tweeting about his own potential in looking forward to another season.

Wallace runs with the Southern Stampede AAU program during the off-season.
