Wake Forest Player Countdown: No. 61 Duke Ejiofor

Dean Shore

What can we expect from Duke Ejiofor this season?

Duke Ejiofor is a defensive end/outside linebacker out of Houston, Texas. Ejiofor redshirted last year and will be eligible to play this upcoming fall. He was rated the 35th best weakside defensive end in the class of 2013 according to 247's ratings. That makes him a 3-star prospect. He was initially committed to Rice, but he flipped his commitment following an official visit to Wake Forest.

Ejiofor is probably the fifth best defensive end on the roster, but he's one injury away from being in the two-deep. At 6'4" 210 pounds and with a 4.53 second 40 yard dash time, Ejiofor has the versatility to also contribute on special teams. Wake's defensive line lacks prototypical size, and therefore will have to make up for it with speed. This is something Ejiofor and a number of other ends on our roster bring to the table. If defensive coordinator Mike Elko wants his defense built around speed, which I believe he does, then there could be a large number of defensive substitutions made, which means more opportunity for Ejiofor.

Check back tomorrow to find out who comes in at number 60.
