Nunes Has Successful Summer, Awaits Offers

Senior Wenner Nunes wants to get down to MD for a visit and hopes a big senior year means offers.

Wenner Nunes’ mind is still open about potential colleges. “I’m looking for a small to medium sized school with a good business program.” All he’s waiting for is scholarship offers.

The 6’3 265 pound offensive lineman from Kearny High School in New Jersey is a rising senior. He’s received mail from the University of Maryland but no offer has been made. His three top schools at the moment are Monmouth, Lehigh and Lafayette, but if Maryland gets more involved, his mind can be changed.

“I’m actually going to send the coaches an e-mail and see if I can get a visit. I want to get down there and see the school.”

If Nunes can help protect the quarterback, he’ll surely be given a visit.

The former Offensive Tackle, who is playing Offensive Guard this year, prides himself on his pass protection and footwork, two essentials for quality offensive line play.

He’s worked this summer on his areas of improvement, like run blocking. He worked out with his team five days a week – lifting for three, playing on the field for two. “I’ve worked on agility, speed, technique. I worked out at a lot of football camps too and learned from college coaches.”

Pleased with his offseason regiment, Nunes is now focusing on his goals for the season – both collective team aims and individual ones.

“As a team I hope we can get better, just win more games. My personal goal is to get some offers, that’ll be a big weight off my chest. I need to stay focused, keep improving.”

Nunes continued, “I’m always looking to get better, I’m not satisfied with anything yet.”

If Maryland decides Nunes can be a help to the team, maybe he’ll finally be satisfied with an offer.
