College Footballs National Signing Day is almost upon us, and we at BSD will keep you up to date on all things recruiting until February 5th. We will make updates as the information comes in and the 2014 class begins to come together. Coach Clawson and his staff turned the 2014 class around in a heartbeat, landing linebacker Zack Wary, two-sport stud Kameron Uter and tight end Devin Pike who flipped his commitment from Louisville. Offensive tackle, Justin Herron, also flipped his commitment from Rutgers to Wake Forest. The Deacs 2014 class is currently at 24 (if you count soft verbal of Terence Ricks). If you have any news on the recruiting trail feel free to discuss it here.
