Wake Forest secured their sixth commitment of the 2013 class on Tuesday night as Briar Woods (VA) tight end Cam Serigne announced he would be playing for the Demon Deacons after graduation.
"I had a criteria for every school - good education, have a really good program surrounded by good people and some place I can be successful on the field," said the 6-foot-3, 215 pound prospect.
"Wake has a great Business program, it's very highly ranked and well regarded," said Serigne. "And they want me to play the H-back position. I'm a perfect fit for it and I'll be catching a lot of balls in that offense."
But what really sealed the deal for the nation's 62nd ranked tight end was the feeling he got when he visited Wake Forest two weekends ago.
"When I was on campus, it felt like where I needed to be," he said. "I visited others but that just made me realize that Wake Forest is the place to be."
So this evening, the Virginia native gave a call to his recruiting contact (Jonathan Himebauch) and future position coach (Steed Lobotzke) to tell them the news.
"I called Coach Himebauch and Coach Lobo and they were very happy," said Serigne. "They said I made their night and were very excited."
They weren't the only ones, though.
"It feels great [to be a Demon Deacon]," he said. "I just felt at home and it's where I needed to be. I wanted to go ahead and get it done. Now I can focus on working hard for next season"
Well, not all of his focus will be taken off recruiting.
"I'm going to recruit Trace McSorley," said Serigne, speaking of his 2014 teammate that is considered one of the top quarterbacks in the Mid-Atlantic. "If he could come with me, that would be great. He's going up on July 14th to camp and hopefully he earns an offer."
Serigne will return to Wake Forest at least two more times - once in July and again after the football season for his official visit.
