Whitman Standout Talks Terps

A position switch from his natural wide receiver to quarterback may have cost Whitman (Md.) junior Anthony Young-Wiseman his statistics, but it didn't cost him his honesty – or his standing with some high-profile college football staffs.

"I had a lot of interceptions," Young-Wiseman said when asked about his statistics. "I was mostly a running quarterback."

And that makes sense, since Young-Wiseman has 4.49 speed that has attracted attention from college programs such as Maryland, Notre Dame and Oklahoma. The 6-1, 190-pound junior, who has 800 receiving yards as a sophomore before the lack of a quarterback on Whitman's roster necessitated his move. He camped at Maryland last summer and has gotten to know Terps recruiting coordinator Dave Sollazzo, who has dropped by Whitman a couple of times to check in with Young-Wiseman.

"He's a very nice man. I enjoy talking to him," Young-Wiseman said. "They say I could help out a lot at either receiver or defensive back … I prefer wide receiver."

Despite the position change,Young-Wiseman, who happens to be the son of Fox D.C. anchorwoman Shawn Yancy, led his team to its first playoff appearance in several years. Also the sixth man on Whitman's basketball team and a track standout, he plans to take some visits next summer and make a decision during his senior season.
