Does Wooden Have A Leader?

One of the nations top athletes narrowed his choices to three schools. Notre Dame made the cut. Does Wooden have a leader at this time?

"I have things narrowed down to three schools," said athlete Ambrose Wooden.

"Its either going to be Maryland, Notre Dame or Stanford. I've visited all three schools and right now, all three are even.

"Notre Dame has the tradition and prestige, Stanford has the education and warm weather and Maryland has a good business school and is close to home.

"My mom has cut off all the phone calls from coaches as she also cut off all the in-home visits. The more the coaches called and made in-home visits, the tougher it has been for me to try and make a decison.

"I need to be by myself and weigh all the pros and cons of each school and make a decision. I also just want to be a kid again and enjoy high school. There's just been a lot of pressure lately."

Wooden, a 6-foot-1, 190-pounder, from Baltimore (Md.) The Gilman School was a four-year starter that was named the offensive player of the year in Maryland in 2002.

Wooden and blue chip teammate Victor Adiamire both played in the Army All-American Bowl as well.

Ambrose passed for 1,600 yards and ran for 1,400 yards this season and had a combined 22 rushing and passing touchdowns. He also had six interception on defense and ran six kicks back for touchdowns. Top Stories
