DeaconSports Recruiting Updates

Five recruiting updates on Wake Forest Demon Deacon football prospects including a couple offensive linemen.

*** Chase Laws has had a good season thus far, and he is looking to make it even better. He's gone for 1,290 yards passing on the season, but more importantly has led his team to the quarter finals of the playoffs.

"We beat Lee County and Richmond already," said Laws. "We have Butler this weekend. I've been to several games on unofficial visits. I've been to Wofford, The Citadel, Elon, and Wake Forest. Wofford and Army said they were going to offer me in December. They're probably my two favorites right now, and Wake Forest and East Carolina are still recruiting me too."

At 6-1 and 185 pounds with 4.6 speed, Laws is the type of athlete that can play any number of postions on the next level, but he will get his first shot at quarterback.

*** The returning Douglas County Player of the Year Armand Cauthen has lived up to advanced billing this season. He has done it all in helping lead Douglas County to an 11-0 record on the year. During the regular season Cauthen had 33 catches for 592 yards and 9 touchdowns. He had 26 punts on the year with a 44.0 average, and he averaged 32 yards per kickoff return.

His good work on the season has earned him scholarship offers from Duke, Wake Forest, East Carolina, Vanderbilt, Ohio, Kansas, and Louisville. Cauthen has not set up any official visits yet as he is concentrating on Douglas' run in the playoffs.

*** Chris Dean is a solid offensive lineman from Marietta, GA that is drawing interest from some of the top academic schools from across the country. Dean already has an offer to play at the Air Force Academy, and he will be a guest of Harvard for the Harvard / Yale game this weekend. The staffs from Yale and Columbia are scheduled to visit Lassiter High School in the next two weeks.

Dean completed an excellent season in which he did not allow a sack protecting the blind side of lefty Zach Richardson. He has good size and feet, and the smarts to play a center position on the next level.

Wake Forest is also recruiting Dean.

*** "We had an all-state runningback [Michael Cooper] and I guess they saw me on film when they were watching him," Sean Mosley said.

Since May, other schools have liked what they have seen in Sean, including homestate Georgia, came forth with a verbal offer. Along with offers from the Bulldogs and Nittany Lions, Sean has received interest from Indiana, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest. Currently Sean has no favorite but he has set up official visits to Georgia (12-13) and Indiana (1-26).

"Indiana, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest are recruiting me the hardest. I'm pretty much open to any school though."

*** "Clemson, Troy State, Texas Christian and Wake Forest have offered," said offensive lineman Dallas Sikes. "Auburn is talking to me but they haven't offered yet. I have taken unofficial visits to Auburn and Clemson but I haven't set any official visits yet. I expect to make my decision close to Signing Day."
