Zion Keith, a 3-star defensive back out of South Carolina, has signed with Wake Forest over Central Florida and South Carolina State. His signing comes during the new 72 hour window starting on December 20th that allows athletes to sign letters of intent before National Signing Day in February. He is listed at 6’1”, 185 pounds, and his Hudl page boasts a 40 yard dash time of 4.5 seconds. Keith first committed to Wake Forest in early March of this year.
Keith was recently selected to play defensive back at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas for the South Carolina team, and was named Athlete of the Year for Region 7 of the 4A division in South Carolina. With his speed and athleticism, Keith will be a fine addition to the secondary and add some depth to the DB position. This was a good get for Clawson and Co., who did a great job to land the commitment and follow it up with an early signing. Check out Keith’s highlights below:
