The 6'4" 230lb pass rusher had never played organized football until last season, having focused on basketball previously. Wells was in Mobile for the USA 7 on 7 tournament and really impressed the South Alabama coaching staff with his athleticism.
That athleticism was evident in the spring when he competed fro Dublin's track team, triple jumping 34-11 and running the 5000 meters, an unusual event for a big athlete as it requires a tremendous amount of endurance.
With his frame and physical abilities, Wells projects to add another 40+ pounds in the future and become a force on the defense line.
Wells is ranked a three-star player by 247Sports.com and the 80th best tight end in the country (he caught 29 passes for 600 yards and eight touchdowns) while Scout.com designates him a two-star prospect and the 123rd best outside linebacker.
