Four-star offensive tackle Devonte Gordon made his commitment to a surprise ACC school when he chose Wake Forest over Virginia and N.C. State. However, his explanation for the commitment revolved around more than just picking a football program as he explained to Rivals.
“My final three schools were Wake Forest, NC State and UVA. NC State had good football and bad academics compared to the other two schools while UVA was the other way around bad football and good academics. Wake Forest brought the best of both worlds so I committed.”
