Highly recruited twins from Fort Worth South Hills, Tylan and Tracin Wallace, announced on Monday that they have committed to play in Stillwater for the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
With over 15 offers each, the juniors decided it was time to commit and Oklahoma State fit the mold.
“They were just a college that was close to home that gave us the opportunity to play where my brother and I both wanted to play,” Tylan said. “It's pretty special because not everyone gets to have the opportunity that we have.”
Never miss a local story.
The wide receiver, Tylan, had a career year last season for the Scorpions, accounting for 59 catches, 1,439 yards and 20 touchdowns. He was named 7-5A Offensive MVP and first team Associated Press 5A all state.
This comes without his brother, Tracin, after the quarterback suffered a season-ending injury during a scrimmage just two weeks prior to the season opener.
Tracin was coming off one of the best seasons in the state in 2014. He threw for 2,123 yards and 30 touchdowns and ran for another 1,393 yards and 20 touchdowns. He was named 7-5A Offensive MVP and AP 5A all state honorable mention.
Despite the missed season last year, the brothers continue to represent not only the school, but the city of Fort Worth.
“It means a whole lot because I know South Hills and also Fort Worth ISD aren’t very big recruiting wise and I'm just happy to represent both,” Tylan said.
In three years, Tylan has 2,827 yards receiving and 36 touchdowns. Tracin has accounted for over 6,000 yards passing and rushing and 83 scores in two.
