    Corey Sobel is yet another top prospect from DeMatha Catholic in Maryland. Sobel, a quality athlete that plays both ways, is starting to garner attention from colleges throughout the country including Wake Forest, Virginia, Penn State, and others.

    Last season, Corey did well on both sides of the ball. Offensively, one source called Sobel "an explosive running back with excellent speed. It takes two or more people to bring him down."

    Defensively, he was named second team Big School All-State at the linebacker position last season as just a junior.

    Corey, originally from Colorado, is very interested in Wake. He is also good friends with the Orlebars, Arthur and Daniel, who will both attend Wake Forest on football scholarships in the fall.

    Sobel is also an excellent student in the classroom.
