Zach Wary Talks About A-State Visit

Rogers Mounties defensive back Zach Wary is happy with his present situation but feels like he is better suited for this future.

The 6-foot-4, 215 pound safety likes playing at the back of the defense for the Mounties but know that will change a year from now when he plays college ball.

"I do like playing safety, but I feel like I am a better fit at linebacker, which I know I will play in college. Safety you have more freedom to roam the field but I feel real comfortable at linebacker."

The Arkansas State Red Wolves are one of several teams that hopes Wary, a 3-year starter who clocked a 4.46 40 at a camp at the University of Arkansas, will be playing for them in a year.

"Coach Eliah Drinkwitz came over in the spring and watched us and about a week later they called and I got on the phone with coach Bryan Harsin and they offered me," said Wary.

ASU and Air Force are the only FBS schools that have offered, and a collection of FCS schools, including Cornell, Harvard and Princeton. Wary has scored a 30 on the ACT.

"I have also been hearing from Arkansas, Auburn and the Naval Academy," he said.

On his way to a camp at Auburn he made his first visit to Jonesboro and the ASU campus.

"I was impressed with the city of Jonesboro. it is a lot like Northwest Arkansas," he said. "I really didn't know what to expect. I thought the campus was great, very pretty. The football facilities were nice. It would definitely be a good place to play ball."
