Is Mauk Still Firmly Committed To WFU?

Lots of rumors have been swirling lately about Ben Mauk's recruitment. What's the real deal behind his recruitment? Who is still after him and do schools other than Wake Forest have a shot? DeaconSports has the latest in our exclusive interview with the Ohio signal caller.

DeaconSports spoke with Ben Mauk Tuesday afternoon concerning his recruitment. While Mauk noted that other schools have been in contact with his father, he will be a Demon Deacon.

"They've been contacting my dad, but they haven't spoken with me directly," Ben Mauk said. "I wouldn't be of any interest, though," he continued. "I'm committed to Wake Forest and that's how I'll stay."

What schools have been in contact with Mauk's father over the past few weeks?

"Purdue has been in contact with my dad a lot over the last few weeks," Mauk said. "Minnesota and Michigan State have contacted him too. Lots of schools [are] calling him but they haven't been talking to me. I know Minnesota offered and I'm not sure about the other schools but they may have too. Since Michigan State got a new coach, they've been recruiting me real hard. But it won't matter."

Mauk will visit with Coach Troy Calhoun tomorrow.
