Tyriq Hardimon Commits to Wake Forest

The Deacs got a major addition to the 2017 class.

NCAA Football: Tulane at Wake Forest Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Wake Forest football program scored a major addition to the 2017 recruiting class on Monday evening. Tyriq (Ty) Hardimon, a 3-star cornerback out Georgia, verbally committed to Wake Forest University. Learn more about Wake’s latest addition.

Hardimon is 6’, 190-pounds out of Marietta, Georgia and was originally committed to Cal, but decommitted shortly following the dismissal of former head coach Sonny Dykes. He also had offers from Minnesota, Northwestern, Iowa State, and West Virginia. He is the 863rd best player (88th best corner) in the country, according to 247 Sports Composite. He is a very physical player who is extremely capable of being a major asset in run support. With the graduation of Brad Watson, corner is definitely an area of need headed into 2017, as there are only 4 corners on the roster. This is definitely a position where a true freshman could see some playing time this fall, and Hardimon could easily be the guy. Excellent pick up for Clawson and company.
