"He said great, good to have you," Dorty continued. "He said he's looking forward to it and he took meet Coach Grobe and tell him."
While Dorty received an offer from UVa and interest from Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Clemson, UNC, and N.C. State, it was the Deacs who won him over in the recruiting process. "At Wake, it's one of the best schools out there to get an education plus the football team is on the rise and I feel like I won't have to wait as long to get on the field at Wake," he said. "They've got great chemistry and a great staff and that's what I love."
This past season, Dorty had 70 tackles, 32 quarterback hurries, 14 sacks, and 1 interception. This season, he has 6.5 sacks while leading West Rowan to a 2-1 record.
Wake Forest recruited Dorty to play linebacker for the Deacs.
