Durham WR Hearing From Wake

Wide receiver Kendrick Wiggins has not yet received an offer from Wake Forest but the Deacons are recruiting him as hard as anyone up to this point. Wiggins recently camped at two other in-state schools and in a recent interview broke down the recruiting process.

The 5'10, 173 pound athlete from Southern High School in Durham, N.C. holds an offer from East Carolina and may be on the verge of others.

"I just recently attended UNC's camp and Duke's camp," Kendrick Wiggins told DeaconSports.com. "They went pretty well. The coaches at both places said they liked me and liked what I did on the field.

"I don't know about other camps yet. I think on July 13 I'm going to Wake Forest because they want to see me play corner. They're recruiting me as an athlete, which means either wide receiver or cornerback. Most other schools are saying wide receiver. I would like to play receiver but if I had to play corner I would do it."

Wiggins has run the 40 in 4.58 seconds and is poised for a big year at Southern. He said Wake Forest and East Carolina are recruiting him harder than any other schools but remains open at this point in the recruiting process.

"No sir, I don't really have any favorites. I'm just taking my time, taking it all in and enjoying the experience," he explained. "I do like Wake Forest, though, and some others. I've heard their business program is pretty strong over there. It's a small, private school with not many students, which I like. It's pretty close to home too."
