"I actually committed to Tech on Monday," said Wheeler. "There were several schools that were recruiting me hard, but Georgia Tech really made me feel the most wanted. Out of all the schools that are recruiting me, Tech is the best academically, and I'm really interested in getting a good education. Plus I just love Atlanta. I go up to Atlanta on the weekends all the time. With Turner Field being right there and the Georgia Dome, it's just and area that I really like."
Wheeler is hoping for a return trip to the Georgia Dome this season in the state Semi-Finals. "That's my goal right now. I want us to get to the dome and then play for another State Title."
Wheeler played as a sophomore on Shaw's 2000 State Title team, and the rest of the Shaw Raiders have their sites set on a return trip in 2002.
Wheeler is Georgia Tech's 5th public verbal commitment. For a complete list, please click here.
