Hurst Plans to Visit Wake

Since the spring, Demontrae Hurst has been a hot commodity. Hurst is now up to 15 offers including one from Wake Forest. DeaconSports.com spoke with Hurst about his recruitment and plans on visiting Wake.

At 5'11, 175 pounds with a speedy 4.4 forty, Demontrae Hurst has all the tools to be a great college corner. Many colleges have noticed that recently and have stepped up with a offer.

"Recruiting is going like crazy right now," said Hurst. "A lot of my offers came in the spring and about 10 or 12 of them came within a three week period."

Hurst not only relies on his physical skills to make plays, he is also a very cerebral player. "I am very disciplined and I stay where I need to be. I don?'t jump all over the underneath routes. Also, if I have taken care of my responsibilities then I can help out my teammates."

As far as Wake goes, Hurst has been doing his share ofresearch on Jim Grobe's program. "I don't know a whole lot about Wake but I have been doing a lot of research on their academics and football program. I definitely want to go to Wake on one of my official visits."

With three seniors in the secondary, the opportunity for early playing time appeals to Hurst. "I would like to see the field early and prove I can play at the college level. If I redshirt that would be ok. It would give me time to learn the system but of course I would like a chance to play early."

Wake has also offered Hurst's teammate Josh Brown which is also appealing. "Josh actually moved in from Florida and I have gotten to know him a bit and we hang out some. When we found out Wake offered both of us we talked about it and how cool it would be to play in college together. If it works out that way it would be great but I am going to go where I fit in the best."

Hurst says he is interested in studying business or finance in college and plans on making his college choice during his season.
