Wade an imposing and athletic LB

BATON ROUGE, La. - In Chris Wade's second attendance at a Rivals.com event, he was once again one of the more physically impressive players around. After standing out at the Rivals.com Five-Star Academy, Wade put his body to good use with a strong showing at the LSU Nike Camp last weekend.

Take into account that Wade went straight to the camp after landing at 4AM from a college visit to Yale, and the performance is put into further perspective.

"I think today was very informational, teaching you how to run and everything, that's stuff you can use in the summer time to get better," Wade said.

Wade has been busy in the offseason playing basketball and running track.

"I run track and I play basketball but mainly, I've been working out every day and trying to get bigger for college."

Already at 6-foot-0 and over 210 pounds, Wade has the frame to add even more weight and he hopes to.

"I want to get close to 240 pounds," he said. "I'm at 217 right now. I want to run a 4.5."

If Wade hits both of those goals, his lists of schools interested in him may expand exponentially. To this point though, he has been receiving interest from Alabama, Tulsa, Arkansas and Yale.
