Calls Coming In For Wooster

September 1. The day college coaches can start making calls to football recruits across the nation. Top prospects could receive upwards of 50 calls in a matter of days from top colleges. Some prospects who commit to a school early don't have to deal with the calls coming in – some do. Such is the case with Demon Deacon tight end commitment Ben Wooster.

Ben Wooster received a host of phone calls in the first two days that the NCAA allows coaches to call recruits. Although he has been unable to get in touch with the Wake coaches as he has been playing phone tag, Wooster has heard from other schools.

"It's pretty cool, but at the same time it's a lot of them," Wooster said. "It gets to the point where it's rough, but it's cool telling them I'm already set. Vanderbilt called, Tulane has called, University of Louisville has called, College of Holy Cross, North Carolina..."

Though schools continue to call, Wooster is set on being a Demon Deacon. In fact, he will travel up to Death Valley this weekend to watch the Demon Deacons take on Clemson. Wooster also plans to visit Wake Forest for an unofficial visit for the Deacons' first home game.

Wooster worked hard this summer on his game and improved one particular part of his game a great deal. "I really worked on my hands this summer," he said, "and that really showed in my first game." Wooster is currently working on perfecting his duties in the GAC offense as the season gets underway.

Wooster feels that he is playing well early this season. In one scrimmage, he caught five passes in three quarters of action. His Greater Atlanta Christian squad dropped their first game this season, however, but hopes to get on track this week.
