The Wake Forest coaching staff received a verbal commitment from cornerback Dionte Austin out of Towson, Maryland in June. Today he officially signed. Austin is rated as the 51st best cornerback in the country according to 247's composite ratings, but is the 35th best in the country according to their ratings. He is our second highest rated recruit behind quarterback Kyle Kearns. Austin is a tall corner at 6' and also possesses elite speed. Austin chose Wake Forest over a host of offers, including Maryland, Virginia Tech, Boston College and Duke. He was recently selected to play for the USA Football U-19 team.

Dionte Austin is a critical addition to next year's Wake Forest roster due to the graduation of senior cornerbacks Kevin Johnson and Merrill Noel. Austin will have a very legitimate chance to come in next season and compete for a starting position.
