Head men’s basketball coach Tom Brown has announced the addition of Addison Wallace to the roster for the 2021-22 season.

“He is a great student-athlete that will give us good size at the wing position,” Brown said. “He is a team player and someone we are excited to have on our team this coming season.”

Wallace, a 6-foot-4 guard from Cleburne, arrives in Canyon after spending the 2020-21 season with Texas State. In San Marcos, he saw action in 17 games including an appearance in the Sun Belt Conference Championships. He contributed 30 rebounds with a season-high seven rebounds in the Bobcats matchup against Louisiana-Monroe.

Prior to his time at Texas State, he played and started in 30 games for Collin College averaging 7.3 points behind a 41.4 field goal percentage. He totaled 34 steals and 15 blocks for the Cougars.

Wallace graduated from Cleburne High School in 2018 where he guided the Yellowjackets to back-to-back 20-plus win seasons and UIL appearances while earning District 9-5A MVP honors his junior and senior campaigns.
