Wake Forest flips a 4-star tight end from Miami? Wake Forest flips a 4-star tight end from Miami!

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Dave Clawson and his staff have become the masters of flipping prospects. Today, they struck again when they flipped 4-star tight end Bowman "Bo" Archibald from Miami to Wake Forest. Archibald took an official visit to Wake Forest this weekend.  ESPN ranks Archibald as a 4-star prosepct and the 189th best overall prospect in the 2015 recruiting class. He chose Wake Forest over offers from Miami, Alabama, Auburn, Florida and Tennessee. I can't believe I just typed that previous sentence about a Wake Forest football commit. This is the start of a new era.

Bo Archibald has excellent size and also possesses good speed for his position. He is a strong blocker and has very good hands. He plays some defensive end/linebacker in high school, but is being recruited as a tight end. So far this season he has 6 receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown in 3 games. He has also carried the ball 18 times for 65 yards and 4 touchdowns. Bo's addition will make tight end an area of excellent depth for the Demon Deacons. Next year they will have Cam Serigne, Devin Pike, Jake Bargas and Bo Archibald. Both Serigne and Pike will only be sophomores next season, so this is a very bright spot moving forward.
