Wade Anxious to Help the Cause

Like many of his future teammates, Clemson verbal commitment Michael Wade is anxious to help out the Tigers' recruiting efforts this weekend when over 20 prospects make their way on campus.

Since June of last year, Riverside QB Michael Wade knew he was going to Clemson.

But now, just three weeks before National Signing Day, Wade will take his official visit to Tiger Town this weekend.

"I think we are going to check-in around four or five on Friday afternoon. There really isn't anything I need to see," Wade said. "I just want to meet with the guys and talk with the coaches. The coaches will not be under stress like they are during the season. I want to talk with Coach Spence about the offense.

"I just want to hang out with the guys. I want to have fun and meet some of my new teammates."

Wade, now more than two months removed from his high school career, says he's relaxing since Riverside closed out its 2005 season. "I have been resting a little bit. I have been working out a lot. I am trying to get ready for what is about to happen. I am also trying to enjoy my senior year," he said.

Who will be hosting Mr. Wade this weekend? "My host is either Proctor or Harper. That is what Coach Blackwell told me," he responded.

Wade is looking forward to watching the Tigers battle Duke. "We are going to see the basketball game on Saturday. That will be run." And what about helping out the Tigers' recruiting efforts? Of course, Wade is up to the task.

"Yeah I will work on whoever they tell me to. When I get there I will ask the coaches who they want me to work. I know a lot about the Clemson area. Hopefully I can help see some of them on Clemson."
