Why Wake Forest? "It's an awesome school. I visited other schools that were nothing compared to Wake. I liked the coaches a lot. The campus is real nice and I've got friends there. Academically I hear Wake Forest is a great place to go."

Nease assistant coach David San Juan: "He's a big strong kid who could win the state heavyweight lifting title. He has developed his strength and his toughness. I can't say enough about that...With Frank, a lot of people didn't know he broke his foot the 4th week of the year. He played the whole year with a broken foot. He played all year and had 12 sacks and 86 tackles. He was virtually unblockable except the week of the broken foot. That tells you a lot about the toughness of him."
