Oregon DE headed East to Hillsdale

South Medford, Oregon defensive end Brett Wallan (6'1" 230) has made Hillsdale College his choice for pursuing his college football career.

Wallan jumped on the Charger Blue radar when reported that he had interest and was being recruited by Army but still liked Hillsdale. He was also on the radar of schools like Hawaii, Idaho, and nearby Oregon State.

Wallan's defensive coordinator Mike Johnston had this to say about him at, "It was real pleasure to coach Brett. We referred to him as the 'ball magnet'. Anytime Brett was near a ball carrier chances were that something good was going to happen for the defense. In his first series as a varsity player he knocked the ball loose from the QB. In the course of the season he caused six fumbles, recovered 6, intercepted two passes and returned 1 for a TD. He was also in double digits in tackles for a loss. Brett is very intense in studying the nuances of the game and soaks up coaching like a sponge. Brett is a leader by example and his teammates rely on him and think of him as a rock!"
