Wake Forest Football Class of 2017 Signee: LB Jeffery Burley

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


Jeffery Burley became a big late-cycle prize for the Deacs despite his relatively early commit. He flirted with Ole Miss for months, eventually turning down a last-minute visit and renewing his allegiance to Wake Forest.  Burley was named first team all-state Class 3-A by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Region 4-3A Defensive Player of the Year and 2016 overall Player of the Year in 2016.
