Wheeler: "Anxious For Tomorrow"

Sam Wheeler

Wednesday morning, linebacker Sam Wheeler will sign the papers and fax in his letter-of-intent to play football at Virginia Tech -- something he has been waiting to do his whole life.

"I'm signing [with Tech] tomorrow," Sam Wheeler said Tuesday night. "Right now I'm just anxious for tomorrow to come so I can officially sign and be a part of the Virginia Tech program and eventually start getting into their weight program, working out, and hopefully playing as a true freshman," Wheeler said.

While it has been rumored that Wheeler would definitely go to prep school before coming to Tech, he notes that he may or may not do so. "I haven't heard anything yet," he said. "I still don't know."

Wheeler, who plans to sign early Wednesday morning, has a big day Wednesday. Not only will a dream come true when he officially signs with Tech, he will also face off with rival Pulaski County Thursday night in basketball.

"We're 10-7 and have two-to-three games this week. I think it's Pulaski at home tomorrow night, Christiansburg Friday, and Cave Springs Saturday."

Wheeler will likely play linebacker at Virginia Tech.
