Dominique Midgett, an inside linebacker from Greensboro (N.C.) Dudley High, committed to Wake Forest in August. Now in the second round of the playoffs, Midgett said that his Wake Forest pledge came because of a whole group of factors that fell in their favor.
“I’m a pretty firm Wake Forest commitment, and I still talk to Coach McCartney (Recruiting coordinator Ray) and Coach Grobe (Head coach Jim) every week, and they’re real nice guys. I just want to play there, and it came down to my decision. It’s close to home, it has a great education and football atmosphere, and the players there want to win.”
Despite having settled on the school, Midgett is still planning an official visit in the coming weeks to confirm his pledge.
“I’m going to be taking an official visit there December 3-4,” he said. “I’m looking forward to it.”
With Dudley in the second round of the playoffs, Midgett knows that he now has more pressing matters to deal with.
“We’re 9-2 and in the second round, so we’re doing pretty well,” he said. “I had an injury early on, I sprained my MCL (Medial-collateral ligament in knee), but I came back from it already. I’m a fast and aggressive player, and I have a non-stop motor going. I’m just a hard nosed football player.”
Midgett is ranked as the fourth best linebacker in North Carolina, and is the No. 23 overall prospect in the state.
