Wilson enjoys Wake Forest visit

Charlotte-based running back Shaun Wilson visited Wake Forest for the first time two weeks ago and it seems he was left wondering why he had never been before.

It wasn't Wilson's first trip of the summer but it was his first to Wake Forest. He visited Ohio State earlier in the summer and a trip to Clemson came just before the journey to Wake.

Those three trips have given him a lot to think about and plenty to talk about.

"I liked Ohio State. I liked the campus and what they have going for the program. I didn't get to camp up there like I wished I could have but from what I've seen I liked it," he said.

"Clemson's camp was okay. They showed me love when I came up to the camp so it was good. I liked Clemson since I was coming up as a child so it was good."

But neither of those schools have offered and Wake Forest has so the time with the Demon Deacon coaches, players and campus personnel was special. That's because it's a realistic option that he could take at any moment. That drives home how real the future really is.

"That was my first time actually going to Wake Forest and I liked it a lot. It's real close to home. I liked the coaching staff and they liked me. I did well there and they showed me a lot of love," he said.

"I was at running back but they just got two running back commits and I don't think they'll be taking another one. The receiver coach said he really likes me. They just want to see if I can catch."

Wilson had more than 1,700 rushing yards and 25 offensive touchdowns last year.
