Alex Frye, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound safety from Fayetteville (N.C.) Britt, considers Wake Forest among his favorites and is looking to make a verbal commitment sometime in the next few months.
“I’m hoping to have a decision made either in the beginning of the season or midway through,” said Frye. “I don’t want to prolong it.”
In addition to the Deacons, Frye owns scholarship offers from Virginia and Duke. Following his performance at Maryland’s one-day camp, the Terrapins’ coaching staff is strongly considering joining the aforementioned schools by extending an offer.
According to Frye, two schools are leading the pack for his February signature – Maryland and Wake Forest. Frye likes the Demon Deacons’ combination of academics and athletics.
“They look like they are on the rise and I like their academic program,” said Frye. “I’ve looked at their [football] program and stuff and it seems like they have a lot of people coming back. From their showing of last year they should be a whole lot better this year.”
Frye will take a big step forward in his recruitment when he takes a trip to Winston-Salem to see former teammate and close friend Brandon Ghee and unofficially visits Wake Forest.
“Brandon Ghee and me are real close,” said Frye. “I plan on taking a trip up to Wake Forest in the next two weeks and I’ll see him then. I’ve never been to the campus before that is why I’m going.”
The Demon Deacons’ coaching staff is looking at Frye as both a wide out and safety. From his safety position last season, Frye picked off five passes and accumulated 55 tackles.
During Scout.com’s All-American Combine, Frye posted one of the more impress performances. He recorded a 4.62-second forty-yard dash on grass, 4.28-second twenty-yard shuttle, vertically leaped 38.5 inches, and broad jumped 116 inches.
