New, 4 comments

National signing day is approaching and the final recruiting push is being made for the class of 2014. Wake Forest target Isaiah "Zeek" Rodney was kind enough to answer a few questions for Blogger So Dear.

Zeek Rodney is a 6'1" 265 pound defensive tackle out of Rock Hill, South Carolina. Zeek attended South Pointe High School, where he accumulated 26 sacks and 27 tackles for loss as a junior. During his senior year he dealt with a hamstring injury throughout the season, but he was still able to amass 12 sacks and 16 tackles for loss.

The standout defensive tackle is the 28th best defensive tackle in the nation according to 247 sports and the 11th best overall prospect in the state of South Carolina. He is known for having outstanding quickness and a great motor. Because of his high levels of achievement, Rodney participated in the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas, which is a game between the best high school players from the respective states. In that game, Zeek Rodney was a standout and even blocked a PAT.

Zeek is scheduled to visit Wake Forest on the weekend of January 24th-26th. He will be visiting Syracuse this upcoming weekend (January 17th-19th). Early playing time is an important factor for the Rock Hill product. Rodney told me, "I'm looking to have a chance to play early and a place where I won't feel left out." Given that Wake Forest just lost nose tackle Nikita Whitlock due to graduation, it certainly seems that Zeek Rodney would have the opportunity to play very early at Wake Forest.

His ideal school "has to feel like home." Regarding Wake Forest, Rodney says, "Wake Forest has a plus with me because it's in the ACC and close to home." Finally when asked about the new coaching staff at Wake Forest, Zeek Rodney had positive things to say, "The coaches seem like great dudes and  know how to win."  Dave Clawson's MAC Championship, which some of his current staff was a part of, is certainly an indication that he knows how to win.

We thank Zeek for his time and wish him the best of luck during the remainder of the recruiting process. You can follow him on Twitter here.
