Kahlil Welsh to Transfer from Wake Forest

The redshirt freshman will be leaving the program.

Les Johns of Deacons Illustrated is reporting that Kahlil Welsh is transferring from Wake Forest. Welsh is a defensive lineman out of Jacksonville, Florida, who was rated as a 3-star recruit coming out of high school. He was part of the 2015 recruiting class, and redshirted last fall.

Welsh was not expected to start this season, but I did expect that he would be rotated in. He chose Wake Forest over offers from West Virginia and Illinois, so he was a decent prospect. This opens up more playing time for Elontae Bateman and Willie Yarbary. Head coach Dave Clawson may also opt to give presumed starters Zeek Rodney and Josh Banks more playing time. It also opens up the possibility that Sulaiman Kamara could play on the defensive line as a true freshman. By the spring game, we will have a better understanding of the projected depth chart, and how the snaps will be distributed.

We wish Kahlil the best of luck moving forward.
