Wake Forest wins battle for OLB Williams
Outside linebacker Jaboree' Williams (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./Fort Lauderdale) pledged to sign with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, multiple sources report. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Williams announced his decision on Twitter:
Appalachian State, Boston College, Cincinnati, East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Holy Cross, Illinois, Marshall, Memphis, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, South Alabama, South Florida, Southern Methodist, Tulane, West Virginia and Wisconsin were his other scholarship offers.
He posted an electronically-timed 4.84 40-yard dash, 4.74 20-yard shuttle, 32-inch vertical, 33-foot power throw and 64.68 SPARQ this offseason at a Nike combine.
Williams is commitment No. 2 for Wake Forest. Safety Cameron Glenn (Stone Mountain, Ga./Stephenson) got the Deacons' class started in April with his pledge.
