Meet the three newest linebacker commits. Welcome to Wake Forest!
Zack Wary - (6-1/215) Rogers (Arkansas)
Zack Wary is a versatile prospect who will can play either linebacker or safety and is a perfect candidate for the 'rover' position in the new 4-2-5 defense that Dave Clawson and his staff will implement. Wary has perhaps the most impressive offer list on the team as he had offers from Arkansas, Boise State & Oklahoma State, among others. Wary is an outstanding student and scored a 33 on the ACT. Wake Forest signed many linebackers in the 2013 recruiting class and because of that Wary may be a redshirt candidate. The redshirt season would allow Wary to put on 5-10 pound and have a far greater contribution as a redshirt freshman. There is little doubt that Wary will be one of the bright spots of this class by the time his career is over at Wake Forest.
Jaboree Williams - (6-0/210) Fort Lauderdale (Florida)
Jaboree Williams enrolled early at Wake Forest, so he has been participating in the off-season conditioning program and will also be a participant in spring practice. Williams recorded 105 tackles, 9 sacks & 5 interceptions as a junior and was named honorable mention all-state in Florida's Class 7A as both a junior and senior. Williams also had offers from Pittsburgh and Syracuse. Williams has good size at 210 pounds, but is probably another candidate to redshirt just based on the amount of linebackers who are already one year ahead of him. Jaboree has very good speed and will definitely be an asset for Wake Forest down the line.
Kalin McNeil - (6-2/190) Northeast Guilford (North Carolina)
Kalin McNeil saw time as both a linebacker and safety last season, and is another candidate to be either a 'rover' or an outside linebacker down the road. McNeil also had offers from East Carolina and Elon. He was named second team All-Triad and recorded nearly 140 tackles as a junior. McNeil is only 190 pounds, so a redshirt year will be very beneficial for him.
