Why Wake Forest? “I just knew I wanted to go to Wake when I got the offer from them. I had to talk to my mom but then I did it. As soon as I got to the campus I could feel it. It was a different vibe than places like Florida State. The team, atmosphere, and all gave me a different feeling plus the academics are solid. I felt like it was the best fit for me.”
