Oklahoma athlete likes Army, Air Force
During the summer Stallings made a visit to West Point the day before R-Day or Reception Day, the day cadet basic training begins. Although he has yet to receive an offer from the Black Knight coaching staff, he says he would strongly consider West Point if they were to pulled the trigger.
"My top two are Harvard and Yale with Army and Air Force right behind them," Stallings shared. "I really enjoyed my visit to West Point. I got to meet with Coach Mumford and Coach Ellerson. I think what's kept them from offering me is they're not sure where to put me. They've talked about defensive end, whip linebacker, or fullback, but they really like me as an athlete.
"It would be very hard for me to turn down an Ivy League education, but I have military in my blood. My grandpa was a colonel in the Air Force and my uncle served as a commander in the Navy."
Stallings said Air Force likes him at fullback or outside linebacker. The military academies may need to act quickly for Stallings services as he visited Harvard last weekend, will visit Yale this weekend, and then Penn the following weekend. He also reports interest from Dartmouth, Illinois, North Texas, and Tulsa.
"I don't really have a decision date in mind," Stallings said. "I'm going to wait until I feel comfortable with the decision. It will probably come sometime in late December."
This was Stallings third year as a starter on varsity at Southmoore, located in the Oklahoma City metro area. In the spring, Stallings plans on participating in competitive powerlifting and train in mixed martial arts where he has earned a black belt.
