Harrison Wallace III shows off insane hops inside Penn Sate's weight room
Harrison Wallace III joined Penn State as a 3-star prospect during the 2021 recruiting class. After some flashes of what he can do during the 2022 season, he could be primed for a breakout in 2023.
Recently, Wallace put his athleticism on display in Penn State’s weight room. With one portion of the weight room deemed untouchable by players and coaches, Wallace proved he could reach the high point not once but twice.

Wallace’s outlook for 2023
One vertical alone does not mean much in terms of on-field production, but Wallace showed glimpses of talent during 2022. He finished the season with 19 catches for 273 yards and a touchdown, averaging 14.4 yards per catch.
With Penn State’s top 3 receivers from 2022 leaving for the NFL in Mitchell Tinsley, Parker Washington and TE Brenton Strange, there is an opportunity for Wallace to carve out a key role for himself next season. He certainly has the physical traits and explosiveness to fill the void.
