Freshman Tracker: Tylan Wallace Doubles Season Production Against Iowa State

Written by Kyle Boone

Just when we all thought the freshman tracker had turned into an altar at the feet of J.D. King, freshman wideout Tylan Wallace burst onto the scene in Ames with three drive-saving third down catches.

Wallace finished with the three receptions — doubling his catch count on the season and adding 49 yards to put him over the century mark on the season, with more playing time likely coming his way.

“We need to play him more,” Mike Gundy admitted after the game Saturday. “Yurcich and Dunn must have lost a bet or something because I don’t know why he’s not in the game more … I do know why, because 28’s in the game. When he’s in the game and we’ve thrown it to him, he’s made plays.”


Here’s an updated look at the season statistics for the true freshmen through 10 games.

J.D. King RB Tulsa 1 rec, 7 yards 94 carries, 452 yards, 5 TDs

    Doesn’t feel like King has had 94 carries. Surprised to not see him more in Ames. It hurts to get a helmet to your bare arm in the cold and Justice Hill would be the first to tell you that. King proved he’s good to go at Texas so I want to see him relieve Hill more. Especially down the stretch. Hill is too good to be wearing a boot all offseason
