Coach Dave Clawson added another piece to the offensive line today when Zach Tom officially signed his national letter of intent for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Tom, an offensive tackle, is listed at 6’4” and weighs in at 270 lbs. He attended high school at Catholic in Baton Rogue, Louisiana and is rated as a composite three-star by the 24/7 sports recruiting service.

Check out some highlights of Tom below from his junior season:

Tom will help provide some depth to an offensive line that struggled at times during the 2016 season. While he may not be expected to come in and contribute right away, there’s no reason to believe that he won’t be a critical piece of the offensive front moving forward.

Tom had a lot of interest from Louisiana-based schools and held offers from Southern Mississippi, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, and Nicholls State. He was previously committed to the Golden Eagles of Southern Miss. before announcing he would become a Demon Deacon in early December.

Let’s welcome Zach to the Wake Forest family!
