Is Camden Wentz Solid to The Cardinal?
Camden Wentz of Lassiter HS (GA) has long been committed to Stanford. He remains solid to the Cardinal but did want to make sure that his name didn't slip off the recruiting radar. What better way to do that than to attend one of the combines on the hottest circuit in America? Scout was able to catch up with Wentz at the GA Dome and find out his thoughts on the day's work and just where he stands with regard to his pledge. "I really enjoyed the competition at the Dome," he said. "There were a lot of top guys from the state and surrounding states and everybody was getting after it pretty good." The top guys Wentz referenced are from the Southeast, a region long known for providing plenty of competition, as well as plenty of opportunities. So why would a GA native commit to a school all the way across the country? What was Stanford able to do that other schools were not? "I have always been big on academics and Stanford obviously ranks near the top in that area," he offered. "It seems like the type of place where you can play, it's in the Pac-10 and it's a BCS conference." It's just really competitive and will provide an education that will last the rest of your life." In spite of the downside of distance, there is one thing everyone can agree on regarding a place like Stanford. "Stanford does have a beautiful campus...I mean beautiful," Wentz offered. "And the coaches are really good guys, too." As good a fit and pick-up as Wentz is for the Cardinal, the admissions process is brutal. This is precisely why Wentz worked out at the Dome. He wanted to keep his name fresh on the minds of scouts and college coaches and to keep his options open. Scout will be following the Wentz Camp closely and will provide updates as they become available. Rusty Mansell of Scout.com-GA contributed to this article.
