Wake Forest Signs Class Of 21 Freshmen

Some of Wake Forest's newest players might have a chance to play right away.

Coach Jim Grobe on Wednesday announced the Demon Deacons' class of 21 incoming players, and says that because of the team's needs, playing some first-year freshmen is "something we're going to look really hard at."

That's a departure from the redshirting-first philosophy that helped carry Wake Forest to three straight bowl games from 2006-08.

Grobe says he redshirted a few freshmen last season that, had they played, could have meant another victory to a Demon Deacons team that finished 5-7 -- one win shy of bowl eligibility.

Grobe says some immediate help could come in the secondary. Scout.com rated all of Wake Forest's four new defensive backs as three-star prospects.
