"Last year was a little frustrating because I had to play behind two Division I tight ends in James Hanna (Oklahoma) and Chandler Koch (Boise State)," said Wenrick. "I didn't get to play tight end as much as I would have liked but I really learned a lot from both of them."
The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Wenrick currently holds scholarship offers from Iowa State and Buffalo and he says he is hearing from New Mexico and Texas A&M.
Craig is very excited about his two early offers. "They are my favorites at the moment because they believe in me and what I can do," said Wenrick. "But right now I'm undecided because it's still early."
Wenrick says that he communicates with Iowa State on a consistent basis. "I just talked to Coach Fountain yesterday. I'm going to Iowa State for a one-day camp on the July 26th," he said. "He said I'm currently the number one tight end on their board for next year."
Craig is using the summer to improve his conditioning and is already seeing results. "I'm going to speed training five days a week and I know I'm in a lot better shape," said Wenrick. "I've gained 20 pounds and I feel a lot stronger."
Wenrick knows what his criteria for a school is but is not close to a decision. "Location doesn't matter to me because I'm going to school to play football so getting to know the coaches and the players is the most important thing," he said. "I'm not going to commit during the summer. I will either decide during the fall or after the season."
