Tetlow commits!

Eric Tetlow, who has been a longtime target of Wake Forest and offensive coach Jonathan Himebach, made it official and committed to the Demon Decon program on Wednesday morning. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive lineman from Richmond (Va.) Godwin High School has the versatility to play center, guard, or tackle at the college level.

"This morning I called up Coach Himebach and told him I wanted him to be my coach," said Eric Tetlow. "I really like that [Himebauch] played college football himself and in the CFL. I love his coaching style. He studied at USC and UNLV and has a unique way teaching technique that applies differently to each player. Plus, he is who he is all the time and doesn't put on a different face for recruiting.

"I also love the academics[at Wake Forest]. The campus is beautiful too. When I was there on my official visit, I felt like it was a place I'd fit in well. I connected with several of the players like Hunter Goodwin. When I was there I actually thought about committing but I wanted to get home and think more about it. On the official you're treated like a king with dinners and a fancy hotel, so I wanted to get back to reality so to speak and see if I still felt the same way when I got back home. I do and see myself fitting in nicely at Wake Forest."

Tetlow has been playing center this season for the Godwin Eagles. Only the top team in Virginia AAA/Colonial makes the playoffs, so Tetlow only has two games remaining in his high school career. Tetlow was invited and does plan on competing in this year's Chesapeake Bowl ("The Civil War") on December 29th in Landover, Md.
