Dorchester (SC) linebacker Michael Wamer is a versatile prospect. The 6-3, 210-pounder from Woodland High School has the size and speed to play safety in high school but he's probably going to see the field as an outside linebacker in college. He has the frame to add additional bulk and college coaches think he has the potential to play outside once he gets to next level. Wamer told Pack Pride recently that he agrees and believes that's where he thinks his best fit is.
"Linebacker is where I feel like I play the best," Wamer told Pack Pride. "I'll probably be a linebacker."
NC State, Clemson, South Carolina and Georgia Tech were the schools Wamer visited this summer and two of those schools are at the top of his list.
"I'd say my favorite would be either North Carolina State or Wake Forest or Clemson," he said, though of those schools only the Wolfpack has offered.
"NC State was a pretty nice trip. I liked it. I've been up there a couple of times already. I went to the spring game and then I went to the camp. They played the spring game even though it rained some. It went pretty good.
"I just like the coaches up there. I like how they talk to you and tell you what they expect. They're all good coaches."
Wamer claims offers from NC State, Navy, Appalachian State and Georgia Southern although he hasn't had as much contact with the Wolfpack coaches over the summer.
"I haven't talked to them in a while now," said Wamer. "It was a dead period and then I lost my phone. Before that I had been talking to coach Mike Reed and coach Kitchings."
For now Wamer says he's content to ride the process out for a while and continue to evaluate his options.
"I'll probably wait until the middle of the season or around then (to make a decision). I just don't know where I want to go yet," he said.
Wamer said he is looking for a school where he will have the opportunity to get on the field or at least compete for playing time.
