OL Cory Helms commits to Wake Forest

6/6/2012

Wake Forest received big news Wednesday when a Top 100 prospect in Georgia decided he wanted to play for the Demon Deacons. Offensive lineman Cory Helms (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton) announced his commitment to Wake Forest while driving home from Winston Salem on Wednesday afternoon.

"I just committed to Wake Forest!" Helms said.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound interior lineman saw his recruitment heat up during the spring evaluation period, pulling in ten offers in little more than a month. After making visits to Auburn, USF and Wake Forest, Helms knew where he wanted to play at the next level.

"The education, location, opportunity to start as a freshman, my relationship with the coaches all played a role in committing to Wake Forest," Helms said. "It felt like home."

A three-star prospect, Helms is considered the No. 57 offensive guard in the country and No. 88 prospect in Georgia. He joins fellow offensive lineman Cameron Gardner (Bailey, N.C./Southern Nash) to give the Demon Deacons two commitments for the 2013 class.
