I actually think it's kind of cool. From the ESPN article, he's still a year or so away from getting his UG. Hope he actually goes through with it.

OK, so I have stated this twice, in now locked threads, but I would want Ben Wallace at CLS. We need him to win the Dean's cup over NYU. I think they have won it the past three years.

He should go to UT.

EDIT: Does Miss. State or Auburn have a law school?

Now that we can actually discuss this, I'd like to note: He doesn't even have his bachelor's degree yet, he has to finish that first, so it'll be a while.

However, he has some epic softs. I just hope he comes onto TLS and gets some good advice here so he doesn't undershoot with his apps. :mrgreen:

No idea about Miss. State or Auburn, but UT does seem to like athletes. Didn't Chris Hills end up there after he finished his fifth year on the O-Line?

I have a formula to predict where Ben Wallace will attend. Find the closest match between his FT% this season (28.6%) and a school's acceptance rate.

The contenders -

UIUC - 29%
Georgia - 28%
Arizona State - 28%
Utah - 29%
UCONN - 28%

My vote? UCONN. Jim Calhoun is a great recruiter.

Hypo: Some school gives him an honorary degree. Do law schools count it?

This is epic. How freaking cool would it be to share a class with him?! He's pretty much a lock for Mich at least ;)

Virginia schools seem like the obvious choice. I'm sure Richmond would love to have him.
