Wake Forest continues to be aggressive on the recruiting front, this time going after 2 big time players from Tennessee.
I'm truly blessed to receive my 15th offer and my third ACC Offer from Wake Forest University ⚫️⚜️#Elite3 pic.twitter.com/RHR3e40tmX— Kendrell Scurry (@D1Scurry) May 10, 2017
Kendrell Scurry is a 6-3, 185lb 4-star receiver and the 3rd best player out of the state of Tennessee in the 2019 recruiting class. After committing to the University of Tennessee, he decided to re-open his recruitment on March 6th, stating that he was “still committed” to UT but wanted to “see and visit other universities” in order to explore his options. This is mostly due to the Volunteers’ receiving coach and noted recruiting whiz Zach Azzanni leaving for the Chicago Bears in February. The Deacs have some big time competition for Scurry; he currently has notable offers from Ohio State, Louisville, Purdue, Penn State, Georgia Tech, Missouri, Mississippi State, Kentucky, and of course, Tennessee. It’s so surprise that Scurry is a highly sought after recruit, as he is rated as the 17th best receiver in the 2019 class. It seems like Scurry will probably end up with the Vols, but if Clawson could pull some magic it would be a great steal for the Wake Forest passing attack.
The Deacs have also offered TJ Sheffield, a teammate of Scurry at Independence High School. Sheffield, who sits at 5-10 167lbs, is rated as a 4-star receiver for the 2019 class and ranked as the 9th best player in the state of Tennessee. Like Scurry, Sheffield opened his recruitment after Azzanni was hired away by the Bears, but maintains that he still committed to the Vols. Sheffield has competing offers from Penn State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Indiana, and Tennessee. It is probable that Sheffield, much like his teammate, will end up playing for the Vols in 2019, but the fact that he is exploring his options means that Clawson still has a chance to bring him on board.
If Clawson could get even 1 of these 2 receivers for the 2019 class, it would be huge for the Deacs. What do you think our chances are?
