This year’s Michigan football roster is one of the best in the nation, boasting loads of talent and potential, and aligning the Wolverines with the national championship discussion. The one area of concern that Michigan still has is at cornerback — with Will Johnson still battling injury and the room looking a bit shallow, the Wolverines could use some extra depth ahead of their 2023 campaign. Yesterday, a new Michigan football transfer poral target emerged in the form of former three-star UMass defensive back Josh Wallace, a native of Maryland.

Notably, Wallace’s outstanding performance on the gridiron earned him recognition as a second-team All-Independent honoree, further underscoring his impact within the conference. This accolade serves as a testament to his consistent excellence and highlights his ability to make a significant impact in every game he plays.

Wallace’s career thus far

During the thrilling 2022 season, Wallace’s presence was felt in all 12 games he participated in. His defensive prowess shone through as he recorded an impressive total of 41 tackles, including three tackles for loss. His ability to disrupt plays and make crucial stops showcased his versatility and knack for making a difference on every down.

Moreover, Wallace’s remarkable playmaking abilities were on full display as he contributed with one fumble recovery, two interceptions, and eight pass breakups. His exceptional awareness and keen instincts allowed him to create turnovers and provide strong coverage in the secondary, making him a force to be reckoned with.

As Wallace continues to progress in his career, his consistent performance, exceptional leadership, and game-changing abilities make him an invaluable asset to any team. With each accomplishment, he solidifies his status as a rising star in the world of football, hinting at a bright and prosperous future ahead.
