Wake Forest redshirt freshman WR Greg Dortch had four catches for 68 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over Utah State.

After redshirting his first year on campus, the 5-foot-9, 160-pounder has made an immediate impact for an offense that desperately needs playmakers. He's caught at least four balls in each of the team's first three games. Dortch owns a respectable 14-179-4 line.
Sep 19 - 2:07 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 12-of-22 passes for 242 yards and two scores and ran for 53 yards and a score in a 46-10 drubbing of Utah State on Saturday.

Wake Forest could have won this game by just running the football, but they did damage in the air, too, thanks in large part to Wolford. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound signal-caller had a pair of 40-plus yard touchdowns in the first quarter, a 43-yarder to Greg Dortch and a 45-yarder to Cam Serigne. His touchdown run came with 9:09 left in the fourth from 18 yards to make it 43-7 Wake Forest. It's early, but Wolford looks like one of the most improved players in the ACC, if not the nation.
Sep 16 - 6:28 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 13-of-19 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 92 yards and another score in Saturday's 34-10 win over Boston College.

It's early, but Wolford looks like a different quarterback than the guy that came into the year with a 27/35 career TD/INT rate. He's rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns and completed 24-of-34 passes for 258 yards and a 4/0 TD/INT ratio during Wake's 2-0 start.

Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne caught two passes for 34 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 51-7 win over Presbyterian.

Serigne (6'3/250) put in his entire evening's work within the first seven minutes of the game, hauling in scores of eight and 26 yards. And that was that. The John Mackey Award watch list-er is coming off a 2016 season in which he rocked a 30-426-3 receiving line. We expect an uptick on all three numbers of that line this season. Already almost there on the touchdown front. Wake Forest will take on Boston College in a traditional Saturday match-up on September 9 when they next take the field.
Aug 31 - 9:58 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 11-of-15 passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 47 yards and a score in Thursday's 51-7 win over Presbyterian.

All four of Wolford's touchdowns came in the first half. He hit up TE Cam Serigne for a pair of scores in the first quarter, finding him from eight and 26 yards out, then punched it in from two yards out early in the second quarter. Greg Dortch would score the final touchdown off Wolford's hand on a seven-yard scoring toss just minutes later. While the senior gunslinger performed well against FCS Presbyterian, there's no reason to expect more of the same as the season unfolds -- Wolford has never posted a season with more touchdown passes than interceptions. He holds a 30/35 TD/INT ratio for his collegiate career.

Wake Forest named senior QB John Wolford the starter.

Wolford won starting honors over redshirt sophomore Kendall Hinton. If nothing else, he is an incredibly seasoned option -- his 35 games played tie for third-most among active quarterbacks in the FBS. This past season, Wolford threw for 1,774 yards with a 9/10 TD/INT ratio.
Aug 26 - 9:44 PM

Wake Forest suspended redshirt sophomore DE Paris Black for the first three games of the 2017 season for an unspecified violation of team rules.

No further details were given. A former three-star recruit, the 6-foot-3, 255-pound Black received sporadic playing time off the bench in 13 games last season.
Aug 26 - 5:31 PM

Wake Forest redshirt junior T Justin Herron caught Tony Pauline's eye on film.

"I found him to be athletic and fluid off the edge, and he really stood out in pass protection," Pauline wrote. "I’d like to see Herron improve his run blocking strength, but I like his next-level upside." Herron started 12 games at left tackle as a redshirt sophomore last year. Pauline currently ranks him as a Rd. 4 prospect.

Wake Forest HC Dave Clawson denied that he anonymously panned Louisville junior QB Lamar Jackson to Sports Illustrated.

The plot thickens. Jackson said over the weekend that he believes that "that the Wake Forest coach" anonymously told Sports Illustrated back in January that Jackson has "no shot" of playing in the NFL. Clawson is now denying that he was the mouthpiece for that comment, telling Scout.com, "I never said those things. I have great respect for Lamar Jackson as a football player. I think he is one of the elite players not only in the ACC, but in the country." He denies that he was even contacted by Sports Illustrated for the story. Circle October 28th on the calendar, when Wake Forest hosts Louisville.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline says Wake Forest redshirt senior edge rusher Duke Ejiofor's game is "fluid" and "smooth" and that he "beats blockers with agility and fundamentals."

"Ejiofor lacks natural bulk and struggles coming off blocks," he wrote. "Watching him on film this summer I couldn’t help make the comparison in style and substances to Tarell Basham, third round choice of the Indianapolis Colts last April." Ejiofor has a vertical jump of 33.5 inches. He runs a 4.77 40-yard dash. In addition, Ejiofor lifts almost 1,400 pounds in the power clean, bench press and squat combined. The 6-foot-4, 266-pounder posted 17 TFL and 10.5 sacks last season for the Demon Deacons.
Aug 6 - 8:57 AM

Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne said that sophomore RB Cade Carney is "going to be a horse for us again."

Carney (5'11/215) was a three-star recruit coming out of high school and immediately made his presence felt with the Demon Deacons. As a true freshman last season, he rushed for 589 yards and six touchdowns. The explosivity wasn't there -- just 3.9 YPC -- but expect plenty of carries during the coming campaign.

Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne was named to the 2017 John Mackey Watch List.

Serigne (6'3/250) posted back-to-back seasons of at least 500 yards receiving to start his playing career with the Demon Deacons, but tailed off to 30-426-3 receiving line in 2016. He did up his yards-per-reception average from 12.2 to 14.2 for the past campaign. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks Serigne as the No. 13 tight end for CFB fantasy play.

Wake Forest redshirt senior edge rusher Duke Ejiofor has a vertical jump of 33.5 inches and runs a 4.77 40-yard dash.

In addition, Ejiofor lifts almost 1,400 pounds in the power clean, bench press and squat combined. Wake Forest coaches rave about Ejiofor's instincts as a pass rusher. The 6-foot-4, 266-pounder posted 17 TFL and 10.5 sacks last season for the Demon Deacons.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder posted 17 TFL and 10.5 sacks last season for the Demon Deacons. "Ejiofor has the length and production teams love," Trapasso wrote.

Wake Forest freshman LB Jeffery Burley "should challenge for snaps right away," according to Bleacher Report's David Kenyon.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound linebacker was a consensus three-star recruit by all major recruiting services. Burley was pegged as the No. 31 inside linebacker in the nation by the 247 consensus board.
