Godfrey to Take All Five Officials

After making a verbal commitment to Coach Jim Grobe shortly following an unofficial visit to Wake Forest, Dennis Godfrey stated he would not visit any other school. With an increase of interest, however, Godfrey has decided to take all five of his allotted official visits before closing his recruitment.

"Wake Forest is on top right now," said Dennis Godfrey. "I'm just trying to make sure they are the best fit."

Godfrey, a 6-foot-3 255-pound tight end from Sanford (N.C.) Lee Senior, will officially visit Clemson (January 13th), South Carolina (January 15th), Virginia (January 20th), and Virginia Tech (January 28th) in addition to this weekend's official visit with the Demon Deacons. Furthermore, North Carolina and N.C. State have also contacted Godfrey about scheduling an official visit.

The decision to visit other schools was brought up by Godfrey's mother, who wanted the jumbo athlete to be assured of his selection. The Wake Forest coaching staff understands the circumstances.

"We talked about it and I told them the situation with my mother," said Godfrey. "They understand what I'm going through and my situation."

All seven aforementioned schools have extended Godfrey a scholarship offer, with an increase of pressure coming after his performance during the Shrine Bowl in mid-December.

"I felt good about the Shrine Bowl," said Godfrey. "Being apart of an all-star team and playing alongside Brandon Spikes, Carl Johnson, Kevin Atkins, and O.C. Wardlow was a lot of fun. A lot of people have played in the Shrine Bowl like Julius Peppers and Steven Davis. Also, it's a great contribution to the kids [of the Shriners Hospital], who have disabilities."

Before the Shrine Bowl week, Godfrey helped lead Lee Senior to the NCHSAA 4A Semi-Finals totaling 26 catches for 317 yards and a touchdown. He also was a major force on the defensive line.
