My Take on Wake - Ehrmann Mans Haynes’ Position | JournalNow.com
With junior Hunter Haynes sidelined by a pulled hamstring, I was curious who would take his spot at weakside linebacker in today’s scrimmage at BB&T Field. The answer came right away when Joey Ehrmann, a redshirt freshman from Baltimore, ran onto the field with a first-team defense also consisting of Kyle Wilber and Tristan Dorty at ends, Boo Robinson and John Russell at tackles, Matt Woodlief and Jonathan Jones at linebacker, Brandon Ghee and Michael Williams at cornerback and Cyhl Quarles and Alex Frye at safeties.

The guys at Wake were very supportive as was Coach Jay. It was difficult leaving something that my teammates and I had built at Wake. Not many college teams in history had the success that our squad had. As for the positives and negatives, you could go over them a hundred times but at the end of the day getting an opportunity to start your football career at a tremendous club like Everton is something that you just can’t pass up.

Ok, as far as recruiting goes, I think we are looking for a center in the 2010 class. My guess is that it will be either be Damontre Harris or Carson Desrosiers be wrong but that is just my guess. In the 2011 class, I think that we have got things under control. I am almost sure that C.J. Barksdale is coming to Wake. There is no doubt in my mind that there's no place he would rather go. For the point guard position, Marquis Rankin is a leading candidate. I was talking to him at CP3 and you know what I was talking to him about - Wake Forest
