Ole Miss' QB Wallace recovering, focusing on future
OXFORD, Ms. - Bo Wallace's unpredictable, risk-taking style in the pocket made him one of the Southeastern Conference's most exciting players last season.
These days, the Mississippi quarterback is a little boring. That's by design.
The 6-foot-4, 204-pound junior is coming back from offseason shoulder surgery in January and is in the later stages of his recovery. He was allowed to throw again in May and spends most of his workouts standing still while making 10-, 20-and 30-yard throws into a net to strengthen his arm.
It's repetitive. It's simple. But he hopes it will make him a better quarterback and he'll be full strength by August.
Ole Miss is coming off a surprisingly successful 7-6 season, including a win over Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl. Now expectations are even higher.
