If they visit, they will come.

Wake Forest added another player to the 2015 recruiting class on Monday when Jessie Bates announced on Twitter that he had decommitted from Toledo and was committing to Wake Forest University. Bates is listed at 6'3" 185 pounds, and took an official visit to Wake Forest this weekend. He is rated as the 93rd best safety in the class according to 247 Sports.  Bates recently picked up an offer from Iowa, but opted to officially visit Wake Forest this past weekend instead of the Hawkeyes. I really like this late addition for Clawson and his staff.
