Last season Artis Wharten had over 8 sacks and 2 forced fumbles for his defense. He also was one of the leading tacklers on the Miramar defense.
Even though it's early in the recruiting process Wharten has been getting letters from many of the top programs in college football. He has received mail from FSU, Miami, NC State, Pittsburgh and Wisconsin. When we asked Wharten what his top five schools were he mentioned the same teams.
"I like Miami, FSU, NC State, Wisconsin and Pittsburgh those are my top five favorite teams at this time."
So did Wharten have one school that he followed the most growing up, "Yeah FSU that was my team growing up."
When it comes to the player that Wharten most admires on the football field here is what he had to say, "I like Lavarr Arrington the most, he is very aggressive and that is how I play the game."
The most important thing for Wharten this year is not only to get better but for his football team to make the playoffs. "Last year was tough and I want our team to make a run in the playoffs, a turnaround from this past season would be great," he said.
Camps- Wharten plans on attending camps at FSU, LSU, Auburn and NC State
