Deacons grab fourth commitment of week

6/7/2012

The Demon Deacons are on a roll, picking up their fourth commitment of the week. On Wednesday, Milton (Ga.) offensive lineman Cory Helms (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton) pulled the trigger and committed to Wake Forest, and on Thursday his teammate and fellow three-star prospect Josh Harris (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton) decided to join him.

"I have committed to Wake Forest," Harris said.

Like Helms, Harris took a visit to Winston Salem on Thursday, and the 6-foot-4, 300-pound offensive lineman believed he had found the right program to play for at the next level.

"It was a perfect fit for my family and I," Harris said. "I love the academics and the opportunity to play in the ACC is very appealing. The coaches are great too."

Cornerback Brad Watson (Austin, Texas/Westwood) committed to Wake Forest as well on Thursday, and offensive tackle Cameron Gardner (Bailey, N.C./Southern Nash) was the first to commit to Jim Grobe and his staff on Monday.
