Willie Yarbary Commits to Wake Forest

Wake Forest lost all three starters from last year’s defensive line. New head coach Dave Clawson recognized this issue and has made defensive line a point of emphasis in the 2014 recruiting class.

Wake Forest received a verbal commitment from defensive end and former Indiana commit, Willie Yarbary, who visited Wake Forest this past weekend.

Willie Yarbary is a 6’2" 270 pound defensive pound defensive lineman from the Academy of Richmond County in Augusta, Georgia. Yarbary was previously committed to Indiana University, but decided to flip his commitment following his official visit to Wake Forest this past weekend. Ironically enough, the current defensive coordinator at Indiana University is former Wake Forest University defensive coordinator, Brian Knorr.

The consensus 3 star recruit This past season, Yarbary recorded 97 total tackles, 53 of which were solo, 9 sacks, 1 interception, and 1 forced fumble. For his efforts, Yarbary was named honorable mention all-state for Class AAAA in Georgia.

Yarbary will join fellow defensive line commits Zeek Rodney, Rashawn Shaw and Chris Stewart (Knight). Please join me in welcoming Willie to Wake Forest!
