Andrew Jackson's Marquel Wade is considered one of the top wide receivers in North Florida for 2010. So far this season the tigers are off to a 4-0 start and are led by the multi-talented 5-foot-11, 180-pound receiver with a reported 4.4 speed, who scores in multiple ways. Wade has 11 catches for 115 yards, with 3 TD's on offense, and has scored 3 times on special teams with 1 kick return for a TD, and 2 punts that he returned for scores.
"Things are going good, we're 4-0," said Wade. "We don't have the best quarterback this year, so my numbers are off."
On the recruiting front, Wade has over 20 offers from schools like South Florida, Miami, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Louisville, Maryland, Arkansas, Middle Tennessee State, Ole Miss, Illinois, South Carolina, East Carolina, Cincinnati, Indiana and UAB.
"Everything's cool with recruiting, everybody's calling and wanted me to take visits," said Wade.
Right now Wade has one visit set to go to Arkansas during his bye week on Oct. 31st, and is trying to set up another.
"I might be going to South Florida for a visit on Nov. 21st," said Wade. "I'm trying to work things out with my coaches."
The Jacksonville WR was once considered a near lock for USF, but a commitment never came, and after a trip to UGA has a new short list of schools.
"It's Arkansas, South Florida, Georgia, and Ole Miss," said Wade. "All have offered except Georgia."
The Jacksonville standout got to watch the Bulls upset win over the Seminoles Saturday and liked what he saw.
"I loved it, they showed they're a big time school and what they could do against a top program on the road" said Wade. "I also liked the way they play young guys."
"I wasn't really surprised. I already knew what they can do, but I didn't know they'd come out with a win," said Wade.
Does the impressive road win change things for Wade?
"Yeah it does. When I'm looking at a team, I look at everything. How they do on the field, the depth chart and everything that would make it good for me to go to that school."
Wade says he really likes the coaches at USF, and talks to the them regularly and just spoke to them the other day. They talked about the game as well as setting up an official visit.
"The coaches at USF are cool and young like the players and can relate. The receiver coach McGeoghan played in the NFL for the Broncos and stuff. So he knows what he's talking about so everything will be good there."
The multi-talented prospect likes that he can come in and play early either at wide receiver or kick returner for the Bulls.
"My decision is going to be based on travelling for my mamma so she could come and see the games, and education," said Wade.
A decision could be coming soon as Wade said he like to make a decision before basketball starts in December after he makes his visits.
Stay tuned with USFNation as he update you on Marquel Wade through his visit schedule.
