Head coach Dave Clawson and staff struck on the recruiting trail for the first time in August, as wide receiver Jaquarii Roberson committed to Wake Forest for the Class of 2017

The 6-3, 170 pound Roberson (@quarii25) is a wide receiver out of Hertford County High School in Ahoskie, NC. 247Sports has him rankedas a 3 star, and the 43rd best receiver in the state of North Carolina.

He chose Wake Forest over East Carolina and N.C. State. He was also courted by Central Florida and Old Dominion throughout the recruiting process.

Last year at Hertford County he accrued 66 receptions for 1,480 yards and 19 touchdowns, averaging 113.8 yards per game in leading the Bears to a 9-4 record. He also scored 21.7 PPG and averaged 9.8 rebounds per game for the basketball team.

Welcome to Wake Jacquarii. We look forward to seeing what you can do at Mother So Dear!
