Lone Star QB has Wake connection

Bear Fenimore not only has the best name of any high school quarterback in the country. He's also got a nice game to match...

Alabama has heavy shown interest in the 6-2, 215-pound quarterback and it would be fitting if another 'Bear' were to land at the school. If that doesn't happen he could end up at any number of other schools that have been recruiting him. Fenimore has already heard from Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, LSU, Washington State, Georgia, Mississippi State and Boise State.

He's already visited Alabama, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M. Once that first offer comes it might lead to a domino effect. Expect Wake Forest to be in the mix.

"I've talked to Coach Jackson before and he just tells me to send him my film," Fenimore said. "My teammate Brad Watson is committed to Wake Forest. (Jackson) asks (Watson) about me a lot."

The fact that Watson is committed to Wake is a big factor that could work in the Deacs' favor. That's something Fenimore does not deny.

"That's a big factor. Me and Brad are best friends. We have a lot of the same interests. When he went for his official visit against Boston College he told me how beautiful it was and how much he loves it," he said.

"He always says positive things about the program so it's definitely a positive."

Fenimore has passed for more than 1,700 yards and 11 touchdowns this year. He will be one of the highest-rated quarterbacks in the Lone Star State next year.
