Commitment Forthcoming

Fresh off his season opening game, O.C. Wardlow could be set to end his recruitment with a verbal commitment to a surprise school he plans to visit this week.

"I'm going down to Virginia tomorrow [Saturday]," said Wardlow. "I'm leaving tonight [Friday]."

Wardlow, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound dual-threat quarterback, has been favoring Tennessee for quite some time. However, sources close to the situation claim Wardlow's trip to Charlottesville is to give the Cavaliers his verbal commitment.

Wardlow wouldn't confirm or deny the claims, but said he's doing "something like that" during his stay.

On the football field, Wardlow led Winston-Salem (N.C.) Mount Tabor to a 39-20 victory over New Bern. He opened up the game with two passing touchdowns and added a two-point conversation pass.

Up by nearly four touchdowns, Mount Tabor "called off the dogs" and resorted to mostly handoffs to the fullback and tailback. Regardless, Wardlow ended the game with 94 passing yards by completing 13-of-19 passes. He added 35 more yards rushing on the ground.

"I had a good game," said Wardlow. "Our defense stopped their pass; our running backs did good; our offensive line did good."

A three-star recruit, Wardlow is the 13th ranked prospect in North Carolina.
