“He is a real slippery guy,” Edmond North linebacker Brock Byford said of Wand. “He has real good balance, and if you don't wrap him up, he is eighty-eight and out the gate.”
Merideth said he didn't realize just how impressive Wand was on Friday night until watching the game film.
“Then I kind of realized, man, that was an unbelievable performance, not only by Warren, but our whole offense,” Merideth said. “Our offensive line the last two weeks has really stepped up and improved and opened some pretty big holes for him.”
In addition to his elusiveness and 4.49 speed in the 40, Wand also is one of the five strongest players on the Bulldogs, Merideth said.
“He has got great make you miss ability, but if he has to put his shoulder down and run through you, he can,” Merideth said.
College recruiters haven't started contacting Wand yet, but it's just a matter of time, Merideth said.
“That will change, I'm sure, very quickly,” he said. “As long as he keeps working as he is now, he definitely has the talent and ability (to be a Division I player). The opportunity should be there for him when he gets to be a senior.”
