The recruiting process has finally come to an end for Royse City prospect Brock Wempa and his family. The 6'4 290 pound Wempa was all but set to be a Cyclone until a coaching change backed up his plans. "We have tripped to Iowa State, UTEP, and Northwestern State. ULM's campus was one of the top ones", said Brian Wempa, Brock's father.
We tripped to NWST this past weekend, but Brock had his mind made up, he wanted to go to ULM. He likes the coaches, the facilities, and most of all he likes the players at ULM and the fact that ULM is not afraid to schedule some of the top schools in the nation. We looked at how ULM beat Alabama in 2007 and how they lost by one point to Arkansas last year; Brock feels that ULM is about to get very good, very quick".
Brock played tackle his entire career but might be a perfect fit for ULM at the guard position because he is strong and quick. "New ULM offensive line coach Vance Vice told us that the best 5 will be out there this year", said Wempa. Senior, junior, freshman, it didn't matter, the best 5 will be playing. We like that about Vance, he is a straight forward guy that will pat you on the back when you have done good, and chew you a new one when you mess up".
Currently Brock has an impressive bench press of 425 and a squat of 675. "The strength coach at ULM told Brock that when he gets him the weight room he can reach a 500 pound bench and a 700 or more squat easily".
"Brock is really excited about being a Warhawk. Looking at some of these kids that are committed, ULM has a great class coming in and Brock wants to be apart of that".
