Petit-Jean, a 6-foot 190-pound safety, orally committed to Ray McCartney, Steed Lobotzke, and Brad Lambert during an in-home visit.
"I felt like Wake Forest was my number one school," said Petit-Jean. "The family atmosphere, being in the ACC, and everything came out to that Wake Forest was the school for me. So I committed."
Firm in his pledge, Petit-Jean is looking to cancel his official visit to Wisconsin scheduled for this weekend.
"I don't plan to [take any other official visits]," said Petit-Jean. "I tried to call Wisconsin today and tell them, but I think they still want me to go up there to their visit. But, this is a solid verbal."
Petit-Jean officially visited Wake Forest in mid-December.
"[The Wake Forest visit] affected me a lot," said Petit-Jean. "It gave me a good perspective. I could visualize myself there."
After arriving in Winston-Salem this fall, Petit-Jean expects to see the field.
"There's a great opportunity to play early there," said Petit-Jean. "Both of their starting safeties are leaving and I think they only have two returning backups and only one with playing time. Me being the only safety recruit, I have a great opportunity to play early."
Despite missing two and a half games with a turf toe injury, Petit-Jean had a great senior season accumulating 55 tackles, two interceptions, five sacks, four forced fumbles, four blocked field goals and a blocked punt.
