Easter Surprise From Intemann

Wake Forest added a commitment from one of the state's best linemen on Easter, picking up a surprise commitment from Dylan Intemann. A 6'5, 305 pound tackle out of Wake Forest (NC) Rolesville High, Intemann called the Demon Deacon coaching staff Sunday giving the Deacon staff some good news.

"I started out and [North Carolina] State was the 1st to offer," Dylan Intemann said. "I went and looked through there. ECU offered and then Wake Forest offered and I compared it to State and ECU and knew Wake was the right place for me with coaching staff and all that. Wake Forest seemed like a top notch education and the coaches are really, really good. All of them are top notch and know everything about what they do. It's a great group of guys they have, definitely one of the best in the country. I just decided to commit."

Intemann, Wake Forest's third commitment in the class of 2011, fell in love with the University on his first visit. "I've been there once and the campus is really nice. Not everything is brand new, it has a home feeling to it. It's small and very personal."

Intemann was recruited by Coach Russ but committed to Coach Lobo early Sunday afternoon. "He was really ecstatic, real happy to have a big lineman come in," Intemann said of Lobo. "He's anxious to get me there."

While Intemann has visited just once thus far, he plans to visit again in two weeks for the Demon Deacons' Spring Game. "I'm going to go up there on 17th."

While Dylan Intemann was thrilled with his decision, his father, Bob Intemann, was also thrilled with his ultimate choice. "It's great," the elder Intemann said. "He's not entrenched in classes with 200 students. The fact that he's able to get that type of a personal education at Wake and have what I would call individual attention with no around 15 kids is fantastic. The reputation of the University preceeds itself."

"It's a small school with a big-time athletic program," Bob Intemann said. "It's the smallest school in the ACC. To have that and the quality of academics and athletics, you can't ask for a better match-up. I think that's a reason he chose Wake Forest."

The elder Intemann also noted that he would join a former schoolmate at Wake Forest -- Colin Summers. "He actually went to pre-school with him," Bob Intemann said. "He probably hasn't talked to him in years but they did go to school together a few years and 280 pounds ago."

Dylan Intemann is Wake Forest's third commitment in the football class of 2011 joining offensive lineman Cody Preble and Will Harlos.
