The 6-3, 265-pound defensive standout is rated a four-star recruit by Scout.com and the No.22 defensive end prospect in the country. He played mostly middle linebacker in high school, but is expected to play with a hand on the ground on the collegiate level.
A strong defensive star for coach Anthony Jenkins' Hernando high school team, Wadley reports a 505-pound squat and a 4.8 second 40-yard dash. He collected All-State honors after his junior and senior years and has been named to the All-Metro team every year since his sophomore season. Wadley recorded 120 tackles and seven sacks in his senior year, improving his tackle total from 105 as a junior.
Wadley is another versatile defender signing with the Tigers this year.
