Quarterback Looking Hard At Wake Forest

A 6'1, 180-pound quarterback out of Asheville, North Carolina, Ben Johnson is looking hard at the Deacs. With great academics and athleticism, Johnson is a Wake Forest-type of kid. What are his thoughts on the Wake program?

"Right now the only school that I'm looking at is Wake Forest. They are encouraging me to apply for academic scholarships and walk-on to the football team," said the 6-foot-1, 180-pound quarterback Ben Johnson.

"That's the play where I'd like to go. They have a good combination of a good academic program and a major football program playing in the ACC."

With his mind basically made up, will Ben take any official visits?

"I'm taking an official visit to Wake Forest on January 16th."

Side Note: Ben is a teammate with talented linebacker Chase Rice (North Carolina commit). When asked if he would try and get Chase to follow him to Wake Forest if accepted, Ben had the following to say: "If I get into Wake Forest then I'm definitely going to try and get Chase to come with me."
