Wide receiver E.J. Scott comes to the Demon Deacons from the University of Virginia, where he earned his degree in four years. Because Scott redshirted during the 2010 season, he still has one year of eligibility remaining and will spend that year at Wake Forest. Scott is eligible to play immediately.
Scott has ties to Wake Forest as the Deacs offered the Ellicott City, Maryland product when he was in high school and he is also close friends with former Demon Deacon slot receiver extraordinaire, Michael Campanaro, as well as current cornerback Kevin Johnson.
This is a tremendous acquisition for the Deacs because of what a loss it was to lose Michael Campanaro, who had at least 47 receptions more than any other receiver for Wake Forest last year. Dave Clawson's offenses have varied from heavily targeting one receiver (Freddie Barnes had 155 receptions in 2009 and Kamar Jorden had 96 receptions in 2010), to having an equal opportunity offense (no player for Bowling Green last season had more than 54 catches, but six had 24 or more recpetions). Either way, E.J. Scott has a great opportunity to see a lot of the field last season and I believe Wake Forest fans will welcome him with open arms. During the 2012 season, Scott had 29 receptions for 390 yards and 3 touchdowns.
