Offor Discusses WFU Commitment

Gods-Power Offor is the newest member of Wake Forest's recruiting class and certainly one of the biggest. The 6-3, 220-pound defensive end from Hialeah (FL) American committed to the Deacons on Tuesday. It was a combination of factors that led him to conclude Wake Forest was the place for him, and it's a decision he reached while he was in Winston-Salem visiting the school for the first time.

He returned home shortly after his visit and came out with his college choice.

"It starts with the coaches," Gods-Power Offor said in explaining his decision. "The way the coaches act and the way they treat their players. They treat each player like he's their own son.

"Another thing is the team and the atmosphere during the workouts and everything. I feel like that's a place where I can go and develop.

"Lastly, just the way the place looks. The whole terrain and everything. They're very high on education and you can tell that at the school. If you walk out of there with your degree you can make a lot of money pretty soon."

Offor said his decision ultimately came down to Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Maryland and Stanford, all of whom had offered him a scholarship. As you may be able to tell from the schools listed, academics were a huge factor for Offor, so he will fit right in at Wake Forest.

The Demon Deacons have brought Offor on board as a defensive end and believe he can help give the team the pass rusher it has been looking for in this recruiting class. He does not plan on taking any other visits and said his verbal is as solid as it gets.
