This Guy Plays Notre Dame Football: #16 KJ Wallace, Defensive Back

Two-way aggression may define the team’s freshmen heading into this season.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2019 season.

KJ Wallace, DB

KJ Wallace joins the Fighting Irish from the Lovett School in Atlanta, Georgia. Wallace capped off his high school career with 511 rushing yards, 8 touchdowns and only two interceptions during his senior season. We definitely see a pattern among incoming Irish freshmen: two-way fearlessness. This defensive back is no different. His commitment marks another recent addition from Georgia, after players like Derrik Allen and Tommy Tremble. Keeping an eye on the state has been a priority for Brian Kelly; Georgia produced 27 NFL Draft picks in 2018.

Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift or Chicago

I’m going with T Swift for this guy. See my YouTube (Or Twitter) Hot Fire pick to find out why KJ Wallace will never go out of STYLE!

Hey, Dog, Hey!

Another freshman, another puppy. KJ Wallace is a bulldog pup. He’s a tough guy, but will grow to be more intimidating.

One-handed TD catch, no big deal...

2019 Outlook

He has the responsive athleticism the Irish need, can attack from both sides of the ball and get the job done. For this reason, he’ll fit right in, especially with his fellow Irish freshmen.
