Suggs signs with Deacs

Randleman (NC) offensive tackle Joel Suggs signed with Wake Forest at 9:12 AM today, Feb. 1.

Rivals.com rates the 6-foot-6, 285-pound Suggs as a two-star recruit.

He committed to Wake Forest Mar. 4. Steed Lobotzke and Brian Knorr recruited Suggs for the Demon Deacons.

"I'm just so impressed with everything over there (at Wake)," Suggs said in a prior interview with Deacons Illustrated. "I think what sold me the most is the coaching staff. My recruiting area guy, Coach Knorr, we've been talking a lot, and Coach Lobotzke. I think they're great guys. I think they're honest recruiters. They'll be honest with you with what's going to happen. They're just excited about me, and I'm excited about them."

Randleman made it to the state playoffs, and finished with a 9-3 record.

Suggs will move into the rotation after almost certainly redshirting his first season on campus.
