Wake Forest Football Recruiting: National Signing Day Primer

What are the main storylines headed into National Signing Day?

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

National Signing Day is less than 24 hours away, but there are still several pieces who could be added to the 2015 class. This article will focus on potential recruits we could land, and not ones who appear to be very firm commits. Let's go over the biggest players still up in the air.

DT Tyler Cross

Syracuse commit Tyler Cross took an official visit to Wake Forest this past weekend. He is a 6'2" 275 pound defensive tackle out of Douglasville, Georgia and is a consensus 3-star prospect. 247's Composite Rankings list him as the 92nd best defensive tackle in the class. If he commits, he will join fellow defensive tackles Elontae Bateman and Kahlil Welsh.

OL Quarvez Boulware

The 4-star offensive guard is scheduled to announce his commitment today at 5 p.m. Maryland appears to be the overwhelming favorite. He gave them a "silent verbal gone wrong" on on unofficial visit several weeks ago. He took an official to Wake Forest on January 23rd and took an official to Florida this past weekend.

RB Matthew Colburn

There was much controversy surrounding this young man yesterday after Louisville revoked his scholarship offer less than 48 hours from National Signing Day. It did not take Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson long to begin following South Carolina's Mr. Football on Twitter. Colburn is a consensus 3-star prospect and is the 99th best running back in the 2015 class according 247's Composite Rankings. Per Wake Rivals, Wake Forest has offered. It's worth noting that coaches cannot have in-person contact with recruits until Thursday, so Colburn could not visit campus until then.

Sihiem King

King is an all-purpose back out of Moultrie, Georgia. He was named All-USA Second-Team in 2014 by USA Today. He finished the season with 2,090 rush yards and 40 total touchdowns. It's presumably down to Wake Forest and Middle Tennessee State based on his Twitter timeline, which is admittedly a rather unique recruiting battle. He also has an offer from Washington State. It's unclear if Wake Forest would be open to taking both King and Colburn. It's also unclear if they have a preference. King could potentially be used as a slot receiver, so it's possible would take both and does not see them both as true running backs.
