"I was surprised with how hard they went after Pahokee [High]. It's one of the top programs in the country. ... These are guys that played both ways, and those are the kind of guys that Wake Forest really likes, guys that are smart guys who can play both sides of the ball and may come in and redshirt. I really like Zach Allen. ... and A.J. Marshall from Southern Durham, I love his versatility and I think there's a chance he could play some safety."
