Cape Cod- Having just completed his true freshman season for the Razorbacks, Wallace will likely become a sophomore draft-eligible by age in 2022 due to an early August birthday. He's an emerging superstar for the Hogs after a strong spring (.279/.369/.500 with 14 home runs) and an even stronger Cape (.290/.352/.468). At 6-foot, 205 pounds Wallace is an immensely exciting talent, with a rifle arm and a powerful right handed bat. He's athletic and physical with above average bat speed and run speed. He swings hard, barrels up balls and generates better exit velocities than most. Like most power hitting freshmen in the SEC, Wallace struck out too much and must reduce his K rate to fully enhance his draft value. His swing can be considered unorthodox, but it works for him. He has a tendency to step out, taking his head with him in the process and is more of a guess hitter at this point of his development. However, he has guessed right often enough to produce at a high level and sits near the top of scout's follow lists for 2022. He's easily a top 100 talent at this point in the draft process.
