Last season Artis Wharten was one of the leading tacklers on the Miramar defense and he contributed at least eight sacks and two forced fumbles.
Even though it is early in the recruiting process, Wharten has been getting
letters from many of the top programs in college football, including North Carolina State, Pittsburgh and
"I like Miami, FSU, NC State, Wisconsin and Pittsburgh," Wharten said. "Those are my top five favorite teams at this time."
So did Wharten have one school that he followed the most growing up? "Yeah, FSU, that was my team growing up."
The player Wharten most admires on the football field is a fellow linebacker. "I like
Lavar Arrington the most," Wharten said. "He is very aggressive and that is how I play the game."
The most important thing for Wharten this year is not only to get better but for his football team to make the playoffs.
Miramar went 1-9 last season. "Last year was tough and I want our team to make a run in the playoffs, a turnaround from this past season would be great," he said.
