Winston-Salem (N.C.) Parkland defensive back Antonio Wardlow had been expected to make a decision in the not so distant future between North Carolina State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech. In a recent conversation with the 6-foot-1, 185-pound cornerback though, it appears his timeline as well as his list of schools may be changing.
“I was planning on deciding early, but now I’m not so sure,” admitted Wardlow. “I think I might like to take all of my official visits first before deciding.”
Wardlow has at least three visits he’s pretty sure he’s going to take.
“I’d say I’m definitely going to take a visit to South Carolina and Clemson, and probably Tennessee,” explained Wardlow. “I haven’t set any dates for these visits yet, and I’m not sure which schools will get the other two visits at this point.”
With four original favorites, three other schools have emerged for Wardlow.
“I still like North Carolina State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech,” stated Wardlow. “But, Clemson, North Carolina, and Wake Forest have all entered the picture as well.”
Wardlow and his teammates have seen a rough start to the 2004 season dropping their first two contests.
“We lost to West Forsyth in the opener and last week fell to Mount Tabor,” said Wardlow. “I think we’ve been playing alright, and hopefully we can break through with a win this week against East Forsyth.”
Wardlow earned all-conference honors as a freshman, sophomore and a junior. He also received all-area recognition as a junior and a sophomore. Last season he had 51 tackles, six interceptions, and 13 pass break-ups.
