Patience has definitely paid off for quarterback Darius Wade of Middletown, Del. While he already had a few offers under his belt, three BCS offers were added in the last couple of weeks.
Wade's three new offers arrived from Nebraska, Boston College and Syracuse.
"Through Facebook, Coach Beck of Nebraska, Coach Eric White of Syracuse and Coach Day of BC told me to give them a call over these past two weeks," said Wade. "So I did and it led to them letting me know that they were going to offer me."

These three offers joined his original offers from Massachusetts, Delaware and Bucknell. This recent additional success is extremely gratifying for Wade.
"It feels great and also relieving to know that apparently I am doing something right and that colleges are starting to notice the hard work I put in to get to this point and are rewarding me for it," said Wade, who is 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds.
More offers may also be on the way, as Duke, N.C. State, Ohio State, Oregon and Old Dominion have all been showing consistent interest lately.
Up next for Wade will be a series of visits.
"I am planning on attending Temple this Saturday and then I'm going to visit Duke, N.C. State, Ohio State, Boston College and Nebraska in the near future," said Wade. "I really hope to get a sense of how the coaches feel towards me and the plans they have for me in the near future. I also want to get a chance to see the campuses and get a feel of the environment at the universities. I also want to see if I feel comfortable and how I like the facilities at the school. I will be looking for other things, but these are the main things I will look at."
Besides the college visits, Wade will also take his talents to the NUC100, Nike Training Camp, Elite 11 and the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour in New Jersey on April 27th.
