Why Wake Forest? "When I first visited I noticed how nice the campus was and how small it was. I liked how small it was, I figured everyone knew everyone. The coaches and players were great, I sat in on a linebacker meeting and everyone was close. They were friendly and said great things about the football team and coaches. They took a chance on me because no school had offered me at the time. They saw the good player I thought I had always been and I appreciate that. They seemed like really good people and it is a good program."
