Deaver Gets WFU Offer

Braxton Deaver was simply sensational last weekend at the Wake Forest one day camp. With his play, Deaver was able to earn an offer from WFU.

6'5 210 pound tight end Braxton Deaver out of Providence High School in Charlotte showed why he has five Division I offers last weekend while at Wake Forest.

The talented tight end showed off his great hands, good speed, and nice route running during the one day camp. Deaver routinely beat linebackers and defensive backs in one-on-one drills and made a few spectacular catches along the way.

"Camp was really run beautifully," said Deaver. "There were over 300 kids at camp but the coaches did a great job separating everyone out. I worked a lot with Coach Russ and he gave me a great evaluation. He also helped me work on my blocking technique."

So how did Deaver feel about his performance in camp? "It may have been my best performance yet. I don't know if I could have caught any more balls than I did. I really worked hard and was able to beat the linebackers and defensive backs I went up against."

On Tuesday, Deaver got an offer he has waited a long time for -- Wake Forest. "I didn't think it would happen. Wake is very picky about who they offer. It just feels great to get this offer. I have been a Wake fan my whole life."

Deaver also has offers from Boston College, Vanderbilt, East Carolina, and Marshall. He will also attend camp at Clemson, Duke, and possibly North Carolina.

Deaver said he has no set timeframe for a decision and does not want to rush things.
