Fidler Takes Unofficial

Henderson County (KY) High standout Will Fidler has been busy this spring taking unofficial visits and hitting up the camps and combines.

This past weekend he visited NC State, for the second time this month, and once again returned home impressed.

"I was actually at North Carolina State this past Saturday," Will Fidler told Pack Pride. "I went there to talk with the head coach and coach Trestman some more.

"They said that I was near the top of the list [for quarterbacks], and they have a couple of offers out right now. I might be the next to pick up an offer.

"I'm definitely interested in them. They have nice facilities, a great campus, and I really like the coaching staff."

At 6-5, 200 pounds, Fidler has the frame that coaches love, and he put up some monster stats in 2004. Named the state 4A player of the year, Fidler completed 69% of his passes as a junior, throwing for better than 4,000 yards and 45 touchdowns while leading his team to a 12-2 record. He's earned scholarship offers from Kentucky and Western Michigan but that is likely to be only the beginning as Fidler prepares for his senior season.

He has narrowed his list down to four schools with one having the slight edge.

"Kentucky, NC State, Alabama, and Purdue," Fidler said. "Kentucky's probably my favorite... they are the only one that has offered me.

"I grew up watching them, and I'm a big fan. They are going to throw the ball more now too."

Fidler appears to be in no rush to make a decision, although he did leave the door open to decide should the right opportunity present itself.

"I could do it at anytime, but I don't think I'm in a hurry or anything," he said. "I'm just going to wait and see what these schools decide to do, and we will see what happens."
