"Wake Forest is a great school. Obviously, I'm comfortable with the program especially since my dad played there. I'm up to nine offers right now, so I'm just taking my time checking out some of the campuses on the weekend."
Artis said his first offer came from North Carolina. So far, he's paid visits to Wake Forest, Georgia Tech and Mississippi State. The recruiting attention comes after a huge junior performance for the Wheeler Wildcats in Georgia Class AAAAAA football.
"It was a good year," Artis said. "I made All-Area, All-Region, All-County, and All-State. I had more than 140 tackles and had three safeties. I feel like I have good vision. I'm able to see stuff on the field before the play develops. I'm always looking to make a play and have developed a reputation as a big hitter."
An injury sidelined Artis for most of his sophomore season. He helped the Wildcats make the playoffs this year but they were defeated by Atlanta-area powerhouse, Grayson.
