Jeff Davis coach Lee Carter called junior receiver Adarius Wesley the fastest player on the team, and the coaches at Troy have noticed.
After former G.W. Carver coach Al Pogue – Troy’s defensive backs coach – saw the 6-foot-2, 190-pound speedster’s highlight tape, Wesley received an offer from the Trojans on Thursday.
“(Pogue) called back and said, ‘Man, this kid’s a baller. I like him. I showed my receivers coach and he liked him,'” Carter said.
Pogue said he had to get the OK from new Trojans coach Neal Brown, but Carter couldn’t wait to deliver the news.
“I knew once they saw the film that they were going to offer him,” Carter said. “So I told Wesley, ‘See me tomorrow, I’ll have some good news for you.’ And Pogue gave me the call today.”
Wesley was second on the team with 24 catches for 261 yards and a touchdown as a junior. Now that he has a Division I offer, he knows he has high expectations for his senior season.
“It’s great. It’s a blessing,” Wesley said. “I just have to stay humble and keep working, keep getting better.”
He visited the campus last year with teammate and recent Troy signee Uvakeious McGhee, and has plans to visit again.
“They have their Junior Day, I think next Saturday I’m going down there,” Wesley said.
