Omaha native Jeremy Wallace brings excellent size to the Nebraska backfield and has the ability to line up at either fullback or I-back. The 6-1, 230-pounder could contend for playing time at fullback following the graduation of 2008 seniors Thomas Lawson and Hunter Teafatiller who handled the majority of the playing time at that spot.
A walk-on, Wallace redshirted and worked with the scout team.
Before Nebraska (Omaha Bryan HS)
Wallace attended Omaha Bryan where he led his team to a state playoff berth his senior year. Starting on both sides of the ball, Wallace ran for 1,171 yards and 17 touchdowns, while collecting 115 tackles, two sacks and one interception from his middle linebacker spot. For his efforts, Wallace earned honorable-mention all-state recognition from the Lincoln Journal Star and Omaha World-Herald.
He played on the South Squad for the 2008 Shrine Bowl. Wallace chose to walk on at Nebraska over offers from several Division II programs. He also started for Bryan’s basketball team and was an honorable-mention all-state pick.
Jeremy was born on March 28, 1990, and is the son of Cynthia Wallace. He is a broadcasting major and has volunteered time with the Special Olympics and the Omaha Heart Walk.
