Jake Bargas

On Sunday, tight end Jake Bargas announced on Twitter that he was decommitting from Wake Forest.

This came after his official visit to UNC. On Monday he announced on Twitter that he committed to UNC.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>I am proud to say that I have committed to The University of North Carolina! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TARHEELNATION?src=hash">#TARHEELNATION</a> <a href="http://t.co/PI4NleZOYh">pic.twitter.com/PI4NleZOYh</a></p>&mdash; Jake Bargas (@jbargas22) <a href="https://twitter.com/jbargas22/status/557369241587159040">January 20, 2015</a></blockquote>

Fortunately for Wake Forest, Bo Archibald is already on campus and should help the Deacs at tight end this upcoming season.

Nathan Gilliam

Three-star offensive line recruit Nathan Gilliam re-affirmed his commitment. This is excellent news for Wake Forest as schools like Mississippi State were pursuing Gilliam hard.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Wake is a special place</p>&mdash; Nathan Gilliam (@NathanGiliam_79) <a href="https://twitter.com/NathanGiliam_79/status/556841751894560769">January 18, 2015</a></blockquote>

Jay Irvine

The Deacs were pursuing the cornerback out of Jacksonville, and had a visit scheduled for this upcoming weekend, but Irvine committed to Oregon State this weekend while on his official visit.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Officially Committed to the university of Oregon State beavers Extremely Bless #Pac12#D1#BeaverNation <a href="http://t.co/W3JOrL7sa9">pic.twitter.com/W3JOrL7sa9</a></p>&mdash; G.O.E✈️ (@Jay_underrated1) <a href="https://twitter.com/Jay_underrated1/status/557347848657072130">January 20, 2015</a></blockquote>

Dior Johnson

An excellent quote to see out of Dior Johnson's mouth. Deacons Illustrated caught up with the four-star safety after his official visit and he said "I'm really committed to Wake Forest." Minnesota is aggressively pursuing him, so this one will probably come down to National Signing Day.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>4-star Michigan safety Dior Johnson &quot;I&#39;m really committed to Wake Forest. I love Wake Forest.&quot; ($) <a href="https://t.co/KE5VtbRLli">https://t.co/KE5VtbRLli</a></p>&mdash; Deacons Illustrated (@WakeRivals) <a href="https://twitter.com/WakeRivals/status/557248088474390529">January 19, 2015</a></blockquote>

Quarvez Boulware

Boulware reportedly committed to the University of Maryland over the weekend, though he hasn't confirmed via his Twitter account. It sounds as though he still plans on taking officials to Wake Forest and Florida, so we probably won't know until National Signing Day how firm his commitment is to Maryland.

Rocky Reid

Rocky took an official visit to Louisville this past weekend, but did not commit. Reid is scheduled to take an official visit to Wake Forest this upcoming weekend. Hopefully Clawson and company can secure a commitment. It would be a huge win for Wake's running back situation.
