Wagner Waiting For More Offers

Pack Pride introduces offensive lineman Dennis Wagner and has his thoughts on NC State after his recent visit to Raleigh.

Offensive guard Dennis Wagner has flown in largely under the radar compared to some of the other prospects from Virginia. He's off to a strong start in his senior season and is hoping for more offers.

The 6-foot-3, 275-pound lineman holds offers from Elon and Old Dominion. Many others are showing interest and NC State is one that he thinks highly of.

"I've been hearing from NC State, Georgia Tech, Duke, Marshall, Buffalo and Middle Tennessee State," Wagner said. "I've been hearing from my recruiting coaches from Elon and Old Dominion pretty much every week as well. I actually went to Elon to watch a game the last week of August and I went to Richmond to watch a game as well. I've been to a scrimmage at Old Dominion.

"Saturday I was at NC State for their game against Boston College. I really enjoyed it. It was a great game and just overall a great time. The atmosphere was really good too. I got there around 9 a.m. We had lunch and I got to talk to the coach a little bit. Then we went down on the field and after the game we went to the locker room.

"Coach Willis is the guy that's been recruiting me and I talked to Coach Horton, the offensive line coach, as well. I just sent my film out to them last week. They said they're going to evaluate that and see what to do from there. I think I'm actually pretty high on their board. I'll just have to wait and see if that offer comes."

Wagner lines up at offensive guard for Fredericksburg (Va.) Chancellor and has helped his team to a 5-0 start. They have outscored opponents 176-41 on the year.

He said he projects as a guard or a center at the college level. He has spent time at center at summer camps but never during a game. Nonetheless, he feels like the transition would be smooth.
