Godfrey Back From Raleigh

Sanford (NC) Lee County tight end Dennis Godfrey committed to Wake Forest earlier in the summer but was in Raleigh this weekend for NC State's nationally televised contest against the Virginia Tech Hokies.

"We had a football game Thursday night, so I wasn't able to make it to Wake's game," Dennis Godfrey told Pack Pride. "But, I went to NC State's game against Virginia Tech.

"It was a great game. It was mostly a defensive struggle between both teams. In the end, Virginia Tech came out with the win. I was a little surprised because NC State has a great defense due to Mario Williams and a couple of other guys. They just had bad breaks and penalties really killed them."

Godfrey pointed out that he also liked how NC State's offense used the tight end, as Wolfpack senior T.J. Williams finished with six catches for 62 yards.

"They used the tight end a lot, and he had a great game," said Godfrey. "T.J. Williams is awesome."

Godfrey reportedly picked up offers at every college camp he attended.

What impressed him the most about his visit to NC State?

"I loved the fans," Godfrey said. "They have some amazing fans. The atmosphere there was great."

The Wolfpack is now in hot pursuit of Godfrey and have already extended a scholarship offer. Wake Forest, North Carolina, and East Carolina have also offered the 6-foot-2, 255-pound jumbo athlete, who camped with all four programs prior to picking up the offers.

"NC State has already offered me a scholarship to go there, and they gave me an official visit in December," said Godfrey. "That gives me offers from UNC, Wake, State, and East Carolina."

Godfrey committed to Wake Forest back in June, but it appears that he may be re-thinking his commitment to the Demon Deacons.

"I'm 50/50 right now," Godfrey said when asked if he still should be considered a Wake commitment. "It's just [Wake Forest and NC State] and probably the University of Virginia. There are so many opportunities right now, and it's tough. I'm just sitting back and letting things come to me.

"Wake is constantly trying to keep me from changing my mind so I've talked to them about education and stuff like that."

Despite wavering on his commitment, the three-star prospect still has Wake Forest as his leader.

"Wake probably still leads," Godfrey said. "I like the coaches. They are great guys and Christian men. I also feel comfortable. There is something about Winston-Salem and Wake Forest that stands out in my mind."

He hopes to have a final decision by December when the annual Shrine Bowl is played.
