Cunningham Visits Wake Forest

Although not a big weekend for football recruiting, one prospect out of South Carolina was in attendance for the Deacs' win over Liberty. Defensive back Keon Cunningham made the trip to see the Deacs go to 5-0.

"It went real well," Keon Cunningham said of his visit to Wake Forest this past weekend for the Liberty game. "I enjoyed getting the chance to talk to Coach Henry and meet the secondary coach, Coach Hood. I didn't meet to meet the head coach, Coach Grobe, though."

Cunningham, who was visiting Wake Forest for the first time, enjoyed the gameday experience. "It was fun," Cunningham said. "I really enjoyed how the fans responded to the game. If something goes wrong, they're on the referees and stuff. I really like that. They get into that."

At this point, Wake Forest has yet to offer the cornerback out of Strom Thurmond High School in Scouth Carolina. "Marshall gave me one and Coastal [Carolina,"] he said. "Hopefully Wake Forest gives me one. I gave them some film. I gave them some tape so hopefully they'll be able to watch that."

When the Wake staff gets around to viewing Cunningham's film, they will see the impressive cornerback/safety prospect in action, leading his team to a 3-3 record on the season. "It's going pretty good," Cunningham said of his season. "Right now, we're 3-3 and 1-0 in the region. Things are going well. I'm having a pretty good season. As far as teams throwing to my side, they don't really do it so I guess teams are scared. I've got one pick and around 30 tackles. A couple of big hits to go with that."

After his visit this past weekend to Wake Forest, Cunningham plans on taking a trip to Coastal Carolina this weekend. He also expects to be back in Winston-Salem later this season to watch the Deacs take on Virginia Tech.
