Florida, Duke recruiting OL hard

Since taking over as the head football coach at Florida, Urban Meyer has been recruiting the Sunshine State hard. The No. 44 prospect in Florida is a center with a great knowledge of the game and the ability to develop into a star in the SEC.
At 6-foot-4 and 280 pounds, Daniel Wenger has good size for a center, as well as all the other traits you'd like in a player at that position. He not only knows his own blocking assignments, but those of all his fellow linemen. He has good strength and quickness. That might explain why he has so many offers.
Duke, Florida, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Oklahoma have been among the schools to extend early scholarship offers to Wenger. He's also being recruited hard by Stanford and Penn State, and you can bet he'll be receiving plenty of other offers as time goes on.
"Duke and Florida are probably the two recruiting me the hardest right now," he said. "It kind of goes in phases though. Some schools will recruit me hard for a while then kind of back off. They were talking to me a lot but then it kind of dropped off when we got to May. But then there are schools like Duke and Florida that just come on really strong and flood you with mail and everything."
Does anyone lead right now?
"I really can't say I have any favorites at this point," he said. "I'm not even sure if I'm going to camp or visit any schools this summer. My decision is definitely going to be after my senior season and helping my team and doing well in class are going to be the two biggest priorities I have. I've got the offers on the table and I'll work towards making a decision once I get the high school stuff out of the way."
