Wake Forest's recruiting class isn't going to make a lot of headlines this year, but quarterback Kevin Sousa's signature is an important one. He could be the next Tyrod Taylor. (Seriously). Sousa has a lot of potential, and the staff was able to lure him from Michigan's commitment list in December. Once Miami coach Al Golden was hired, though, he immediately went after a quarterback, and Sousa was on his list. For Sousa to honor his commitment to the Deacs after a 3-9 season for Wake Forest is impressive. Here is a snippet of his Scouts Inc. evaluation:
"He is a spread offense type of QB that works mostly out of the shotgun and has the size to scan the field and make quick reads. He is very impressive on the move and when the launch point changes he can be a serious run/pass threat when outside of the pocket. Has very good feet and pocket awareness to buy second chances and is an accomplished scrambler that is adept at making things happen when the play breaks down. He has strength and elusiveness as a runner and can not only make people miss, but can also lower his shoulder and initiate contact in the open field to fight for extra yards."
