Wake Forest Schedule & Analysis  

1
AT Perry, WR Jr.

Someone had to catch all those passes and make all those big plays from QB Sam Hartman.

The 6-5, 206-pound Perry was hardly the only star receiver, but he was the biggest playmaker averaging over 18 yards per catch with 15 touchdowns and 1,293 yards on his 71 catches.

2
Sam Hartman, QB Jr. 


He’s the No. 1 player on the team if and when he’s back from the undisclosed non-football related condition that’s going to keep him out indefinitely.

The 6-1, 208-pound baller earned Second Team All-ACC honors last season. He has completed 58% of his passes for 9,266 yards and 72 touchdowns with 29 picks – and with 727 rushing yards and 16 scores – over the last four seasons.

3
Rondell Bothroyd, DE Jr.

One of the best all-around returning pass rushers in the ACC, the 6-4, 258-pound, Honorable Mention All-ACC performer made 106 tackles with 9.5 sacks, 23 tackles for loss, three fumble recoveries, and two forced fumbles in the last four seasons.

4
Ryan Smenda, LB Sr.

The 6-2, 237-pound senior made 238 tackles with 4.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss with an interception, four forced fumbles, and five broken up passes in four seasons.

5
Eldrick Robinson, LB Soph.

The 6-0, 210-pound former Georgia Southern star was a Third Team All-Sun Belt defender making 74 stops with 5.5 tackles for loss and two picks last season.

6
Sean Maginn, OG Sr.

A longtime starter on the Wake Forest line, the 6-3, 298-pound senior was a Third Team All-ACC blocker last season with the versatility to work at guard or center.

7
Jasheen Davis, DE Soph.

One of the team’s best freshman defensive ends last season, the 6-3, 253-pounder made 34 tackles with 5.5 sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss with a forced fumble.

8
Justice Ellison, RB Soph.

The team’s second-leading rusher, he’s 5-10, 204 pounds, and ran for 541 yards averaging over five yards per pop with seven scores. He also caught seven passes for 37 yards and a score.

9
Michael Jurgens, C Jr.

An Honorable Mention All-ACC center, the 6-4, 298-pounder is going into his second season at the position.

10
Loic Ngassam Nya, OG, Sr.

The 6-3, 303-pound veteran guard earned Honorable Mention All-ACC honors working on both sides last season. He’ll likely lock in on the right side this season, but he could move to the left.
