The 6-2, 185 pound prospect led Riverside to its first victory of the season last Friday night. "We won 26-7. I ran for two touchdowns. Our defense played great. They really stepped up," Wade told CUTigers.com.

"We moved the ball well. Our running game exploded. We had one back run for over 140 yards and another with over 65. I didn't need to pass much."

The Tigers also have a commitment from Riverside teammate Richard Jackson. "Richard had a good game. His punts were amazing. He also made a field goal."

The talented athlete had to fill in as long snapper during the game because of injuries. "Both of our snappers got hurt. I did the punt snaps. I was holding for field goals. The two field goals Richard missed were not his fault. Once of them the snap was bad and the other I had a problem with the hold," Wade said.

The Clemson commitment plans to be a frequent visitor to Death Valley this fall. "Yeah I am going to the Texas A&M game. I will be at all of the home games this year. I even went to practice last week," he said.

The future Tiger quarterback can't wait to see the WestZone when it is completed. "We saw the digital tour of the WestZone club. It's going to be outstanding. The weight room, the locker rooms, it's all going to be so nice."
