Stachitas Takes WFU Official

Wake Forest's lone quarterback recruit from the class of 2008, Ted Stachitas, made his official visit to Wake Forest this past weekend, visiting Winston-Salem with several other prospects from his hometown. DeaconSports caught up with Stachitas following his visit.

Ted Stachitas arrived in Winston-Salem on Saturday and enjoyed his time eating, hanging out, and getting to know players and coaches alike. "We just pretty much had a great meal and toured the facilities and one of the professors told us about the school and academics," Stachitas said of the Saturday of his visit.

"We went to dinner and we hung at Riley Skinner's house and I met some of the recruits and players. Sunday, we met with my position coach and the other coaches, position coaches, and we did some other things. We went to the basketball game. Then, before we left, Riley Haynes and I talked with Coach Grobe for a little bit."

Stachitas visited the University along with fellow Jacksonville commitments Andrew Parker, Riley Haynes, and Scott Betros. He had visited Wake Forest on multiple occasions but was able to meet more of his future teammates on this visit. "I met a lot of the guys," he noted. I got to meet a couple of the tight ends coming in and the [Jacksonville] Raines receiver Jordan [Williams]. Then Joe Looney, an offensive lineman that got there early and a couple of other guys."

This past season, Stachitas led his team to the state finals and a 13-2 record. On the year, Stachitas threw for over 2,500-yards and 30 touchdowns and ran for just over 800-yards as well. He was named Florida Time-Union Player of the Year, St. Augustine Record Offensive Player of the Year, and to the Super 75 team as one of the state of Florida's top 75 seniors.

The 6', 185-pound quarterback will sign with Wake Forest on February 6th at a signing day press conference at his school.
