Recruit Spotlight: DT Edgar Cerenord

A look at a prospect high on the 2014 Wake Forest Big Board

Edgar Cerenord is a three-star defensive tackle out of Fort Lauderdale (FL), where he attends American Heritage High School.

He is listed at 6-foot-1, 295 pounds and has a smorgasbord of offers from FBS schools (around 20), most notably: Arkansas, Cincinnati and Wake Forest. He recently picked up an offer from Duke as well. He has been high on Arkansas and Wake Forest for a while, but he has visited some different ones as of late.

Cerenord visited Wake Forest this past weekend and enjoyed his time spent with recruiting coordinator Ray McCartney.

According to Maxpreps.com, Edgar had 47 tackles (5.9 per game), 2 FF, 2 FR and a QB hurry in his junior year.

He is a hard-hitting defensive tackle with the ability to get off the blocks well and engage while reading the play. His patience is a strength, as is his ability to decipher and sniff out play action fakes and stay at home to pursue the play.

After he reads the play, he has a pretty nice burst off of the line and some quickness for a DT of his size. He isn't quite as quick as Nikita, but he does take up some more room in the middle, which would be ideal for run defense.

There doesn't seem to be a timeline for his commitment, but based on what I have seen on Twitter and around the various recruiting sites, Wake Forest seems to be in good shape. Arkansas is where 247sports experts have predicted him to go. It is also interesting with Duke coming on as of late to see how that will play out.

Edgar's Twitter handle is @Boss_EAC

He is one of the top recruits that Coach Grobe and the staff are focused on, and would be a great foundation to build on for defensive line commits in this class.
