Cardinal Gibbons High School, Ft. Lauderdale, FL


Prospect ranking…2-star


Accomplishments…Rushed for 800 yards and had 200 receiving yards with 10 total touchdowns as a senior…also made 65 tackles and had one sack


NC State recruiter…Todd Stroud…Academics…Projects as a qualifier


The recruiting scene… Ware received an offer and heavy interest from Ole Miss before committing

to the Pack. He also had offers from Syracuse, Rutgers and Colorado State. Alabama made a late

push but was unable to persuade him.


Scouting report…Ware has great knowledge of the game, and has used his experiences on offense to help him become a better defender. Though undersized, Ware could turn into a prospect similar to Stephen Tulloch. Ware has a motor that doesn't stop running. He doesn't have blazing speed but can cover a lot of ground and doesn't waste motion.
