Dallas (Texas) Skyline has a reputation for producing some of the top linebackers in the country, and in the 2015 class Anthony Wheeler has already attracted the attention of college coaches across the country.
This summer he impressed on the camp circuit with stops at Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, and offers have come in from Baylor, Michigan, Michigan State, Ole Miss, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech.
As he nears the start of the 2013 season, he does have a few schools standing out.
"The favorites would probably be Texas and Baylor," Wheeler said. "I just always liked [Baylor] growing up and I liked Texas growing up. I like the way the coaches treat me, the facilities, the players, and the atmosphere around both of them."
At 6-foot-2, 215-pounds Wheeler is attracting attention at outside linebacker and as a hybrid defensive end-outside backer. Wheeler does not care he just wants to play.
"I think it's pretty good," Wheeler said. "I just want to play football and I just want to be on the field and doing good for my team."
During the fall he plans to visit Texas A&M for their match-up with Alabama and attend the Texas-Oklahoma match-up. All of his plans have not been set in stone but he is also looking into taking visits to Ole Miss and Baylor.
He has also been hearing from a couple of his 2014 Skyline teammates, who have been in his ear a little about joining them on the college level.
"I have Victor Evans," Wheeler said. "He wants me to go Ole Miss with him and Ty wants me to go to TCU with him."
Now it is game week though and Wheeler is focused on the field. This week Skyline travels to Georgetown, Texas to take on The Woodlands for a Saturday match-up.
