Clawson Steals ECU QB Commit

Dave Clawson must be extremely comfortable with Wake Forest already, because he sure is helping recruits feel that way about the program.

Previous East Carolina commit John Wolford has switched his pick to Wake Forest after an in-home visit on Saturday with Clawson.

Wolford joins Lamar Harris as quarterbacks in Wake’s 2014 class, and he is the 14th member in what is now Clawson's first group of recruits. Wolford (a two-star QB according to Scout.com and three-star QB according to Rivals.com) hails from Jacksonville, Fla. and believes Wake Forest could become top football program, as he told DeaconsIllustrated.com.

"They sold me on where the program is headed and I'm going to have a chance to play as a true freshman," Wolford, a 6-foot-1 record-setting quarterback from Jacksonville Bishop Kenny. "There's no reason why they can't be like a Vanderbilt or a Stanford and hopefully I can help them be like that." 

Wolford led his high school, Bishop Kennedy, to a 10-1 record, threw for 14 touchdowns against seven interceptions.He picked up 3,317 yards through the air and also ran for 931 more, all while setting five state records.

Wolford said the in-home visit (Clawson and incoming offensive coordinator Warren Ruggerio traveled to Jacksonville) was enough to impress him and his father.

"They both had a home visit with me. My dad was sold," Wolford said. "Wake is a place that my dad and I were always talking about as a place that we could get a good education and (play) in the ACC."
