RECRUITING: No Decision Imminent For Wenger

Daniel Wenger might be the best center in the nation. The 6-4, 285-pounder from Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas is the anchor of what might be the best prep offensive line in the nation. Wenger is a hot commodity among Division I schools on this year's recruiting trail and he's hoping to have many of those issues settled by the end of the summer.

Wenger is taking it easy this summer. He has no plans to camp anywhere and it's unlikely that he will take any trips to visit schools. Interested parties know where to find him.

"I haven't traveled anywhere this summer to see any schools and I am not sure if I will," he said.

The latest of many schools that has offered is North Carolina. He's being recruited mostly as a center, but some schools see him as a guard. He hopes to have a final five schools decided before the end of the summer. He also is in the earl stages of figuring out just what he wants in his college choice.

"I think I am going to take a lot of them (official visits) in the fall so I need to have them set before then," he said. "I really am still just doing research on my own on all the schools. I want to see what the colleges have signed and what they are losing, that kind of thing. It is just going to be where I have the best fit and see myself for the next four years."

Sam Young and Marcus Gilbert are two of his line mates at Aquinas and both are all-star caliber recruits. All three have offers from some schools, but not all of the same schools. There are certainly some out there that would love to land the triumvirate, but Wenger doesn't think that is likely.

"I am not sure … I think all of us may be looking different ways," he said.

He isn't close enough to a decision on his final school destination to share any favorites right now. Daniel Wenger will make some school very happy about having a heady solid base in the middle of their offensive line. Wenger isn't close to saying who that will be.
