Wake Forest Football: Tight Ends/H-Backs

Spring practice is now over and the Blogger So Dear staff will be breaking down where Wake stands at each position. Today we take a look at tight end.

Wake Forest lost Spencer Bishop due to graduation. Who will the Deacs turn to at tight end?

 

Zach Gordon (RS-So.) - Gordon had a nice spring and has emerged as the number one tight end on the roster. Gordon is a former 3-star recruit who had offers from  Cincinnati and Kentucky, among others. Gordon finished the spring game with two receptions for 10 yards, and will probably be relied upon given that we'll have an inexperienced quarterback.

Cam Serigne (RS Fr.) - Serigne redshirted last season, but has shown good pass catching ability this spring. He chose Wake Forest over James Madison and Ohio.

 

Jordan Garside (RS Sr.) - Garside will be the team's fullback and H-Back this season. He had four carries for six yards in the spring game. In a recent workout he bench pressed 225 pounds 43 times.

 

Brendan O'Neil (RS Fr.) - Brendan was a consensus three-star and redshirted last season. He chose Wake Forest over UConn. He is known for more his blocking ability than his pass catching ability.

 

Neil Basford (RS Jr.) - Basford will be playing tight end this season after being an offensive lineman last season.  He is finally healthy this season, even though he sustained a concussion in the second scrimmage this spring while in the process of making a spectacular catch.

 

Incoming Freshman:

Devin Pike - The former Louisville commit is a consensus 3-star and was the 44th best tight end in the class. In addition to his Louisville offer, he also held offers from Boston College, Illinois and Minnesota. I believe Devin has a legitimate chance to play this upcoming season.
