Wake Forest Football Class of 2017 Signee: S Tyriq Hardimon

Demon Deacon Digest takes a closer look at the newest Wake Forest signee.


The coaching change at California completely shifted Tyriq Hardimon's commitment and led to him finding a spot that may have perfect for him from the start. The Deacs have recruited Georgia well with defensive line coach Dave Cohen leading the charge



Hardimon: “I went to talk to the business professor, because I want to major in business financing. He talked to me and showed me his classroom. They aren’t joking when they say they only average 24 students per class. The room is smaller than one of my classrooms, and this is a business classroom at one of the top universities in the country. That’s pretty crazy. I really liked that. They sold me on the business program.”


From Scout.com: He may look like a cornerback to some, but he is likely a safety on the next level. He plays with his head up, he has his eyes on the quarterback, and he puts himself into position to make plays on the ball. He has shown the ability to coverage and he has great awareness. When it comes to tackling, he has solid technique and he takes good angles to the football.
