Why Wake Forest? "Wake is the perfect fit for me in all aspects. I love the coaching staff and the players there are like family. Their offense fits me perfectly and it's a chance to play ACC football."

River Hill Coach Brian Van Deusen: "Michael is a real playmaker. We tried to get him the ball any way we could. He has great speed and agility and is a true student of the game. Michael was like another coach on the field. He had around 90 touchdowns for his varsity career and the team went 41-1 for that time. Michael is also a great role model for our young players. He is a very hard worker during the off season and is always trying to get better. Michael is also good in the classroom and is very coachable. He will fit in great with Wake Forest."
