Junior Day report

Wake Forest hosted 68 recruits (two 2014 prospects) Saturday, Feb. 25 for its Junior Day.

The Demon Deacons offered Tarboro (NC) defensive end Tyquan Lewis and Wilson (NC) Hunt defensive end Lewis Neal at the event.

North Carolina pledge, Durham (NC) Hillside athlete Korrin Wiggins was in attendance, but left before the basketball game against Boston College.

Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara defensive tackle Darius Commissiong was another highly touted prospect who was present for the festivities. Commissiong, a 6-foot-2, 285-pounder has nine scholarship offers, including one from Wake Forest. It appears that his list will grow in the near future.

"I think Michigan, Ohio State, Miami, North Carolina and Clemson will offer," Commissiong said in a prior interview with Tar Heel Illustrated.

Mallard Creek high school in Charlotte brought the most talent with brothers Alex Covington and cornerback Anthony Covington, wide receiver Jorian Jordan, offensive guard Tevin Lawshe and cornerback Brian Walker.

Rivals.com rates Walker as a four-star recruit and the nation's No. 148 overall prospect. Wake Forest offered Walker Wednesday, Feb. 22.

Durham (NC) Jordan running back John Brown was also on hand.

Close friends, Statesville (NC) dual-threat quarterback Carlis Parker and Statesville (NC) South Iredell outside linebacker LaChaston Smith also made the trip to Winston-Salem.

Greer (SC) Mann tight end Zach Riggs, who is the son of former NFL tight end and Clemson standout Jack Riggs left Wake very impressed.

"I am just leaving Wake Forest's Junior Day," Riggs said in a text message to Deacons Illustrated. "I enjoyed it thoroughly. Coach Lobo is a great guy. I love the family aspect!"
