Why Wake Forest: "Ultimately it came down to Wake Forest and Stanford. I was really looking for a big family environment. After i met with the coaching staff, went around campus it just felt right, like it was the place for me. It wasn't the biggest school that I had been to, and they hadn't had the best record, but I felt like it was a great situation that I'm going into."
Strengths/Improvements: "Coach Lobo offered because of my ability to block because they had some trouble blocking some great defensive ends in the ACC. If I'm able to play early, that will be a big reason why - I'm able to hang in and block with the best."
Rayvan Teague (Carrollton): "Zach is a tenacious blocker. Last year Oxford put their 6-foot-3, 345-pound nose guard who signed with Tennessee at the 7-technique to try and nullify Zach. On the first three plays of the game, Zach pancaked him on each one. He looks like Ivan Drago from Rocky the way he's put together."
