Deacs Add Key In-State Wideout

Saturday, August 10, 2013 4:23pm

Wake Forest picked up a big commitment Friday afternoon when three-star WR Jaylan Barbour committed to the Demon Deacons.

Barbour, a Monroe (N.C.) High product, chose Wake Forest over North Carolina, N.C. State, Duke and West Virginia.

At 5-foot-10, 170 pounds, it is likely that he will play flanker for the Deacs and try to follow in the footsteps of Michael Campanaro.

Barbour caught 44 passes last year for 861 yards for Monroe, helping lead his team to a 10-4 overall record, and 7-0 in the league.

He also achieved the rare feat of scoring points in every single game, including three games in which he just had a two-point conversion.

This is the ninth commitment for the Demon Deacons in its 2014 class and the first wide receiver. Wake Forest is looking to take multiple receivers in the class and Barbour is a great first player to grab.
