Portland, Ore. native attended two different high schools, transferring once after his freshman year before transferring back for his senior year. Originally committed to Oregon over offers from Oregon State, USC and Florida, but failed to qualify academically and headed to Arizona Western Community College in 2007 when he recorded 62 tackles and 7 1/2 sacks. Did not play in ’08 while focusing on academics and coping with the deteriorating health of his mother, Lori Jean, who died of brain cancer in December. After earning his associate’s degree from Portland (Ore.) Community College, committed to Texas Tech and then-head coach Mike Leach. Saw limited action in four games and was credited with two tackles, zero for loss and zero sacks. Under Tommy Tuberville’s staff in ’10, appeared in six games, starting against Texas and Iowa State, and tallied 6-2-2. Graduated from Texas Tech, and with a season of eligibility remaining, transferred to PSU in order to be close to home and play for head coach Nigel Burton, who, while at Oregon State, recruited Wade. In ’11, started all 11 games and produced 30-4-2 with a batted pass and two blocked kicks, including a last-second blocked FG attempt versus Northern Arizona which preserved victory.Summary:
Stout, thickly built and muscled up, Wade is built to root in the trenches, especially given his 42-rep bench-press strength. Reestablished visibility at pro day by running well and posting very impressive vertical leap (35½ inches) and broad jump (9 feet 1 inch) numbers. Lacks ideal height and is tightly wound — shows stiffness in his movement and cannot work the edges. Limited pass-rush utility (depends solely on bull rush to push the pocket). Weight was as high as 340 pounds at Texas Tech. Mentally tough, motivated and hardworking — immediately commanded respect and established himself as a vocal leader at PSU. Physical strength and determination give him a chance to stick.
