"I actually play lacrosse and have been doing that all spring," said Deaver. "We are 16-1 right now and are in the playoffs."
On the football field, Deaver brings a lot to the table. "I think my strengths as a player are my route running and size. I am able to go up and get the ball. Also, I am not afraid at all to go across the middle."
Despite not being able to make any visits this spring due to his lacrosse schedule, Deaver still has two Division I offers at this point. "East Carolina and Marshall have offered me at this point. I am also hearing from Wake, Vanderbilt, Clemson, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina."
Deaver has a family connection with Wake Forest, and admits he has always liked the Demon Deacons. "My dad played ball at Wake and I have grown up a Wake fan. I went to watch them in the Orange Bowl as well as the Meineke Car Care Bowl. The staff at Wake is great. I really like their philosophy. The project me as a tight end or H-back in their system. I will be at Wake's camp this summer and hope to earn an offer then."
Deaver plans to be patient with the recruiting process and see what comes his way. "When I commit will be decided by what is on the table for me. I want to see what is out there. I am not going to pledge somewhere and then end up going back on that. I will tell you Wake is very high on my list."
