Nonetheless Wharton was thrilled when he learned that Wake Forest had offered him.
"I just got that one a little while ago," Wharton exclaimed. "I was talking to coach Lobo, their offensive coordinator, and I didn't know it was going to come so soon. They had been talking to me and recruiting me for a while before that but I didn't know it would happen so far. They just went ahead and offered. I'm pretty excited."
While the 6-foot, 170-pound athlete, who could play either corner or receiver, is excited, he's not putting the cart before the horse. He even admitted that he needs to learn a lot more about Wake before he's ready to talk about the school as a favorite.
"They would probably be up there near the top but I need to visit them first," Wharton said. "I don't really know a lot about them yet. I just know it's a good program and school. I know they've been on the rise for a while."
Wharton said he recently scored a 24 on the ACT and he believes that score really helped him with the Wake Forest coaches.
