Wentz closing in on decision?

Louisville is looking for help on the offensive line and Camden Wentz, Scout.com's No. 28 center prospect nationally, would be a big get. Wentz visited Louisville over the weekend and will make one final official visit next weekend before making a pre-Christmas decision.

A 6-foot3, 280-pound center from Marietta (GA) Lassiter, Camden Wentz gave his visit to Louisville a good review.

"I liked the atmosphere that the coaches and players give off," Wentz said. "It's very family oriented and all of the players are very close, they get along very well and hang out together. I'd give the visit an 8 out of 10. It was my first official visit and I don't have anything to compare it to right now but I liked it."

Louisville junior quarterback Tyler Wolfe served as Wentz' host and showed the two-star center around campus during his visit.

"He answered some questions and told me they're going to turn it around next year and have a good year," Wentz said. "He was pretty confident about that and the team. He told me good things about the coaches."

"I sat down with Coach Kragthorpe and he told me that they were losing their centers, Eric Wood being the biggest loss, and he compared me to Eric and said with my potential I could be like Eric," Wentz said. "The offensive line coach (Brent Myers) made it seem like I could come in and compete to play right away."

Wentz also said he's decided to move up his next official to NC State from Jan. 16 to next weekend. He made that change in order to make a decision in the next week or so.

"Next week I'll go to NC State," said Wentz. "Louisville and NC State are my top two right now and after next weekend before Christmas I'll probably make a decision."

Wentz recently made an unofficial visit to NC State.

"I went up there last week for an unofficial and I liked the atmosphere, the practices and I like what Tom O'Brien did at Boston College and NC State," Wentz said. "I feel like I need to take my official (visit) there before I decide."

What factors will help Wentz make a decision?

"It's just the comfort factor around the players and coaches and where I fit in with their depth (chart) and where they see me at," Wentz said. "Those are probably the main factors.

"I had a great time at Louisville. You can sit down and talk to them about anything. With the players we just kind of hung out. They didn't have to show me around and make it out to something it wasn't. They were just themselves and that was great."

Wentz roomed with John Anevski, an offensive lineman from Cincinnati Elder, on his visit to Louisville.

"I think everyone had a good time on their official visit," Wentz said. "I'm not sure what he's going to do but we both talked about how good of a time we were having and how much we liked it. But I don't know how he's going to compare them to his other visits when he takes them."
