Signee Spotlight: Dylan Intemann
Scout.com Rating: three-star
Size: 6-5, 290 pounds
Hometown: Wake Forest-Rolesville, N.C.
Projected position at WFU: Offensive guard
Commitment date: 4/4/10
Recruiting competition: ECU, NC State
Why WFU: "You go to some schools and coaches put on a front, and won't be the way they actually are. That's not how it is at Wake. Right now they're young, but that's nothing that can't be fixed in a year or two. The biggest thing right now is the age of the team. Once I get there that's going to change because they'll have more experience."
"The coaching staff was a big part of my decision. And choosing the school where I'm going to finish getting an education, the players, the whole thing factored into it; the overall school itself. Everyone is pretty much behind me 100-percent."
"Because its such a small school it's not really comparable to any others-it's so small, and most others are 10,000 or more. They're a real tight-knit group. I can't wait to be there."
Strength and Improvements: Intemann has size on his side, with impressive blocking ability but also with the ability to move. Strength in weight will be a strong addition to the Deacs from this athlete, with much room for improvement and strength building at the collegiate level.
"I don't know if size is a skill, but I'll bring that. And probably just the will to work; you've got to go in there with an open mind ready to work."
Coach Quotes (Head Coach Reggie Lucas): "Dylan was a big kid when he came in as a freshman. Even then we were amazed by the way he moved and his aggressiveness. He's had the ability since day one. He's been in program for four years, with three as a starter on offense. I've seen him mature from a freshman into a high school senior who has had success not only in football but academically.
"Probably his sophomore year we knew that this kid would have what it takes to play on the D1 level. After two years of training and putting on muscle, he's developed as a blocker on the field.
"Sometimes when you get a kid over 300 lbs they don't move well. He's been able to make blocks down the field, finish off from the point of contact, and move his feet well; and he'll just build on that at the next level.
"With the proper focus and commitment to Wake Forest's program, I think his future could be very bright. He's very comfortable and very excited whenever he talks about Wake. He's got the commitment and the ability."
