Video: Seattle U Transfer Eric Wallace Showing Off His Explosive Dunking Ability

Eric Wallace is coming off a year in which he sat out after breaking his leg in a preseason workout in preparation for DePaul University's 2010-11 season.

But if the 6-foot-7, 233 pound forward has fully recovered with the athleticism he's shown in the past, he could be a gem of a transfer for Seattle University.

"Eric is one of the most explosive athletes in the country," said Dollar about Wallace, whose transfer was announced today. "He will be an impact player that will provide leadership and production in a variety of areas. We are thrilled he has chosen to join our program."

Although he didn't put up huge numbers in the Big East for DePaul, Dollar might not be exaggerating too much about that athleticism part.

That's the type of athleticism that could definitely get Redhawks fans in KeyArena excited.

Wallace was not expected to return to DePaull after earning his bachelor's degree in DePaul's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and will be enrolling in graduate school at Seattle University and join the Redhawk men's basketball program for the 2011-12 season.

During the 2009-10 season, the 6’7", 233-pound forward appeared in 24 games, including 19 starts, averaging 6.3 points and 4.9 rebounds per game to finish fourth on the team in scoring average and second in rebounding. Wallace scored a career-high 16 points against Detroit and grabbed a career-high nine rebounds in games against Alabama State and St. John’s.
