Deacs Lead For Vines

California jumbo athlete Randi Vines has earned three offers from D-I schools heading into his senior season. However, it is one school from the east coast that has really caught the eye of the 6'4, 220-pound prospect.

It's going pretty good right now," Randi Vines said of his recruitment. "I've got Wake Forest recruiting me and that was a big thing for me because my mom stays out on the east coast. I was lucky because I wanted to go back east – she lives in Roanoke, Virginia."

Along with Wake Forest, a host of west coast schools remain interested in Vines. "San Diego State and Utah have offered in addition to Wake," Vines noted. "Also, Oregon, Washington State, Arizona State, and Fresno State are recruiting me and seeing how my season goes."

At this point, Wake Forest remains at the top of the list for the Oxnard, California native. "I talk to Coach Henry, the defensive end coach, and enjoy talking to him. I know they won the ACC last year and they have a prestigious basketball program, but I haven't visited yet." According to Vines, he will visit late this month or next month. Even without a visit, Wake Forest remains his leader.

"Right now, I would say Wake Forest," Vines noted when asked for his leader. In fact, Vines could pull the trigger for the Demon Deacons once he makes the necessary score on the SAT. "My academics are good," he noted. "I just have to score a couple points higher on the SAT to qualify for Wake Forest. That's all I'm all waiting on. I'm taking all the SATs I can and I'm also going to take the ACTs too."

Although his team lost their season opener, Vines believes he had a solid outing in his first contest of his senior season. "We lost," Vines said, "but I had a good defensive game. I had about five tackles and a sack."
