Smyrna (Tenn.) quarterback David Wolke has made the transition from a busy summer to an even busier preseason routine.
“We’ve started practice and coach is putting us through ‘Hell Week’ right now,” he said. “I’m worn out. It’s been really rough. I haven’t really had much time to sit back and think about recruiting too much.”
Wolke (6-3, 205, 4.68) barely had time for any R&R this summer after camping at Alabama, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Middle Tennessee. He also participated in the Elite 11 event at Las Vegas, a 7-on-7 tournament at Western Kentucky, and made an unofficial visit to Notre Dame.
He says he has offers from Michigan, Ole Miss, Syracuse, Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Wisconsin and Western Kentucky. The Badgers and Hilltoppers just recently sent letters offering official scholarships.
Tennessee, Alabama and Notre Dame are also in the mix. The Volunteers and Rebels recently sent letters indicating they’d like to hear back from Wolke.
“I don’t really have a top five or anything like that right now,” he said. “I thought I was getting close to doing that, but I’ve been so busy. I’m going to try and narrow things down sometime soon. I like all of the schools who have offered and a couple of the ones I visited.
“I just know some of the things I’m looking for: a winning program that really takes care of the players; coaches who are easy to relate to; and academics. I want to get a strong education.”
As a junior, Wolke passed for 1,808 yards and 18 touchdowns with only five interceptions.
Academically, he maintains a 3.4 GPA and has scored a 21 on the ACT.
