"One of things that separates Penn State from the others is its tradition," said Wedderburn. "After they won the Orange Bowl a few years ago, they have been consistent. I also have a good chemistry with the coaches. We talk a lot and they always tell me how they remember me when I was younger while my brother was playing there."
Cardinal O'Hara High School's tight end is trying to go on his official visit to Rutgers on Dec. 14. "They (Rutgers) are around my second or third choice," he said. "I like that they're closer to home so that my parents can come and watch my games. I like Head Coach Schiano a lot. I've had a lot of conversations with the coaches and I have a good vibe with them. I went down there over the summer with my quarterback and tackle and got to watch them practice. We got to talk to the players after practice about the transition from high school to college."
Wedderburn was given a chance to talk to Tennessee tight ends coach Matt Luke who was in the area last week. Florida and Louisville are also on his top five but hasn't scheduled any visits with them because he said "things are hectic" with those three schools.
Last week, Cardinal O'Hara beat La Salle in the first round of the playoffs 31-7. Wedderburn had two catches for 21 yards in the game. They play this Friday and with a win, will advance to the championship.
Wedderburn has 23 receptions for 327 yards with a touchdown for the season.
He's the No. 22-ranked tight end according to Scout's High School rankings.
