Why Wake Forest: "Wake Forest was the first school to offer me. It just felt right. It really felt like home."
Strengths/Improvements: "He's not only my best player on the defensive line, but my hardest worker. Josh has such a strong drive to push himself to get better. He'll never take a break going as hard as he can until he can't go anymore."- Sean Crocker
Sean Crocker (Middle Creek): "He's big and fast enough to play outside, and he has played there before. His technique off the ball and his athleticism make him hard to contain. When he gets in the backfield he causes havoc. I like him out there pressing the quarterback. He's a hard guy to get away from."
