Andrew Rector really wanted to end his recruitment process and concentrate on the upcoming football season.
After a Saturday visit to Wake Forest, Rector fell in love with everything the Demon Deacons had to offer and committed a couple of days later.
"When I got up there, everything really just fell into place," Rector said. "Their academics are top notch and I'll have the chance to play early at free safety."
"The recruiting process is rough and I just wanted to be finished with it."
He becomes the 15th verbal commitment for the Demon Deacons in the Class of 2015 and is the only safety in the Class.
Rector is ranked No. 16 in VandySports.com's Top 30 MidState Prospects and chose Wake over offers from Western Kentucky
"Wake will be getting an outstanding football player that will contribute early on to their program," Father Ryan head coach Bruce Lussier said. He has a tremendous work ethic and a great skill set along with outstanding field awareness and is ultra competitive."
