Tight end Dennis Godfrey out of Sanford (N.C.) Lee County committed to Wake Forest back in June. The 6-foot-2, 255-pounder has seen a lot of interest recently and began to reconsider his commitment to the Demon Deacons. Today, Godfrey concluded his recruitment by sticking with his word.
"I told the coaches this morning that I was committing to Wake Forest and they were very relieved. Some of them even told me they didn't get very good sleep the last few nights," he said. "I don't want to say I had my doubts on them, but I had a lot of other interest from different schools. I feel when you give someone your word you do it. Wake Forest gave me their word last year after I broke my elbow by still offering me and staying with me throughout the process.
"Then when the Shrine Bowl came all these other schools like Clemson, Virginia and Virginia Tech started to show me interest. I was interested, but then I started to question where they were last year. Meanwhile, I remembered that Wake committed to me and I feel it's the best fit for me."
Godfrey is glad to have the decision done.
"It feels great to have the decision behind me because God put me in this place and helped lead me to where I'm going," he said. "Now I can just focus on trying to make big plays for Wake Forest as they have told me I have an opportunity to compete next year."
The No. 48 tight end in the country is looking forward to heading to Winston-Salem.
"I'm glad to be a Deacon and I know a lot of people don't respect Wake, but they should," he said. "I'm going to do my part to make an impact and help them compete against the top teams in the conference."
Godfrey is planning to major in Communications, Computer Technology or Business at Wake Forest.
