Wake Forest has added another offensive lineman to the 2016 recruiting class.

The Wake Forest football team received some excellent news on Wednesday evening when 2016 three-star offensive lineman Taleni Suhren committed to the Demon Deacons. He is listed at 6'5" 275 pounds. He chose Wake Forest over a host of offers including Duke, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, North Carolina State and Louisville.

The offensive line was a major issue for Wake Forest last season, and Coach Clawson and his staff have addressed that issue in their recruiting classes. This year's projected starting lineup includes three redshirt freshmen, while the Deacons signed three freshmen offensive linemen in the 2015 class. Wake also has another 2016 offensive line commit. Clawson has said that the offensive line will be a strength moving forward and I believe he's right.

Suhren is an excellent commit for the Demon Deacons. He's a North Carolina kid (Charlotte), who makes academics a priority, and he's also very talented. To improve the program, Wake is going to have to beat Duke, Vanderbilt, etc. for recruits, and that's exactly what they did with this commitment.

You can tell from Suhren's video below that he can play. Please join me in welcoming Taleni to Wake Forest!
