Wynn Talks About His Commitment

To follow up on the commitment we broke Wednesday, wide receiver EJ Wynn (5-11, 170, 4.5) who plays his high school ball at St. John's College high school in Washington, D.C. discusses why he chose the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

BL: Congratulations on your commitment EJ.
EJ: "Thank you."

BL: What sold you on Wake Forest?
EJ: "I have family in the area, I liked the school, the campus was nice. I got along well with Coach Sherman and Coach Grobe. Wake just felt right to me."

BL: Are you glad the process is over for you?
EJ: "Yes, I'm tired of all the road trips."

BL: How close is your family to Wake Forest?
EJ: "My godfather's parents live 15-20 minutes away from the campus, my grandparents and my aunt lives in Southern Virginia about 2 1/1 hours away."

BL: Have the coaches discussed with you what their plans are for you?
EJ: "They like me as a slot receiver."

BL: What role did your family play in your decision?
EJ "We sat down and discussed it, we all felt that is was best for me and it was time to decide."

BL: With the early commitments, did the thought come to mind that I should take this because if I wait it may not be there?
EJ: "I knew Coach Sherman said they were planning on taking two receivers one big guy and one smaller guy. I didn't want to pass up the opportunity."

BL:So as of right now you're officially done, no more trips or visits?
EJ:"I'm done no more visits."

BL: What are you doing now in preparation for your senior season?
EJ: "We just finished up some 7 on 7 stuff, and now we are lifting."

BL:What kind of player are the Wake Forest fans getting in EJ Wynn?
EJ:"I'm a playmaker, I work hard. I am quick and fast, and I keep my nose clean."
