Maryland Still on Wendowski's Mind

2011 wide receiver prospect tells TSR that he is interested and hopes highlight film leads to offer.

As the high school football season begins in Pennsylvania, like so many other high school football seniors, Gerard Wendowski is getting tape together to send to schools that are interested in him. But, in the meantime, the research the North Penn wide receiver is doing has spiked his interest in the Terps.

“I’ve been keeping track of Maryland’s recruiting class and I’ve been impressed. I like how their recruiting is going. Its headed in the right direction.”

The 6’ 2” 185 pound receiver said that Maryland is currently a close second on his list of perspective schools, with Temple at number one and Georgetown and Rutgers also under consideration.

Wendowski is getting video together to send to these schools for review, and his play early in this season indicates teams will like what they see. In a scrimmage against Don Bosco Prep, Wendowski had four catches for 75 yards and even recorded an interception on defense.

Those numbers indicate the ball catching skill that coaches like from Wendowski. “Coaches like my hands, that I haven’t dropped many passes at camps. They like that, on route running, I stuck in there and beat the cornerbacks.”

In preparation for North Penn’s first game against La Salle, the receiver has been working on “press coverage from defenses and getting off the man”, two things coaches have said he needs to work on to elevate his game to the next level.

As for the Terps, Wendowski said he is eager to visit College Park and hopes to do so in October after he gets feedback on his tape. A commitment from the receiver won’t happened until the end of his football season and most likely will occur in January.
