Tylan Wallace, a former all-state wide receiver at FW South Hills, is off to a stellar sophomore season at Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys beat Kansas on the road 48-28 on Saturday and Wallace was a huge part of their success again. Wallace finished with 4 catches for 104 yards and caught an 11-yard TD pass in the first quarter. His longest reception went for 56 yards.

OSU is 4-1 this season and Wallace has recorded 100-yards receiving the past four games.

He joins only Justin Blackmon as the only underclassmen in OSU program history to accomplish the feat.

Vs South Alabama: 10 catches, 166 yards, TD

Vs Boise State: 5 catches, 105 yards

Vs Texas Tech: 7 catches, 123 yards

Vs Kansas: 4 catches, 104 yards, TD

Wallace has recorded 30 catches this season for 546 yards and 3 TDs.

When Wallace graduated, he finished in the top 15 in career receiving yards in Texas high school football history. He was ranked as the No. 74 overall recruit in the nation and a 4-star prospect.

He finished high school with 3,760 yards receiving and 48 TDs while averaging 20.7 yards per catch. He caught 56 passes for 933 yards and 12 TDs as a senior, and was first team all-state and District Offensive MVP. Wallace had 1,439 receiving yards and 20 TDs as a junior.
