Camden Wentz Plays the Waiting Game
Camden Wentz has been a Stanford commit for quite sometime. The multi-talented offensive lineman has been very productive in helping the Lassiter HS (GA) Trojans get off to a 4-1 start, the school's best start in quite some time. In addition to producing on the field, he has also been very selfless, playing a number of positions other than his primary, which is Center. He has also been very patient, waiting to hear from the the Stanford admissions department, wondering if he in fact is going to end up playing for Coach Harbaugh and The Cardinal. Check inside for the latest. Wentz is one of the better centers in the Southeast You have been playing a game ever since you committed to Stanford, and it's called the waiting game. You are waiting to hear from the notorious admissions department out in Palo Alto to hear whether or not you are going to get in to your school of choice, and this has to be frustrating. There is something to keep your mind off of what you can't control and that would be the games themselves. "The games are what I look forward to, and we're playing pretty well right now," he said. The Trojans have this week off, but you guys put together a pretty complete game last week against Wheeler. "We came out quick and scored 14 pts in about two-and-a-half minutes," he said. "We were able to jump on them because we were clicking." You guys have a pretty tough stretch of games coming up. Talk about that. "We have Alpharetta coming up, who is tough," he shared. "Then it's on to Milton who has Toney Williams." "After that we have what is probably our toughest game all year, and that would be Walton." Walton is undefeated and playing at a high level. You guys are obviously very talented, as well, so it should be a good game. "We feel pretty confident right now, but we know we are going to have to be ready for that one," he said. "In the meantime, we can't look past anybody." The admissions process at Stanford is not like it is at most schools. It is much longer and you are having to wait to see if you are, in fact, going to get in. All things considered, where do things stand between you and The Cardinal? "I'n still pretty solid," he shared. "They haven't let any of the recruits know if they have been accepted yet, so I am just waiting on the acceptance letter and once I get that, it will pretty much be over." Do you have a back-up plan? "If Stanford doesn't work out, it's probably Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt in a close second and then Rutgers," Wentz said. "And Louisville has come into the picture recently." When will you know about your status with Stanford? "We're supposed to know sometime next month," he said. "But the latest it will go is the end of the semester." In the meantime, expect Camden Wentz to find consolation in the fact that he and his Trojans are enjoying the best season in recent history and that if things don't work out with The Cardinal, he has some outstanding teams with a spot for him on their respective rosters. And that's a pretty good place to be. Burke Hayes is the Southeastern Regional Manager for Football Recruiting at Scout.
