Kentucky will lose another talented piece going into 2024. The former 4-star linebacker will look to make his dream become a reality as he announces his plans to enter his name into the NFL Draft this upcoming spring.
The 6-2, 241-pounder just played his third season of college ball leaving him with the option to play with one year of eligibility if needed. The linebacker out of Jesup, Georgia has played in every single regular season game Kentucky has played in his time here, and will be remembered for returning the infamous blocked field goal attempt by Florida in 2021.
The highly touted future NFL draftee finished his career with 88 solo tackles, 9 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 3 interceptions. Wallace's breakout freshman year was rewarded by being named a member of the All-SEC Freshman Team and solidifying his role for years to come.
Wallace will continue the streak of inside linebackers leaving the program. Last year, former Kentucky and Ole Miss linebacker Jacquez Jones was drafted in the 2023 XFL Rookie Draft as well as former teammate and outside linebacker Jordan Wright. Kentucky will look to fill the room in both aspects after a heavy outpouring of depth in the 2023-24 offseason.
