Wilhite signs with Deacs

Missouri City (Texas) Hightower running back Joshua Wilhite signed with Wake Forest at 10:38 AM today, Feb. 1.

Rivals.com rates the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Wilhite as a three-star recruit.

He committed to Wake Forest July 31. Steve Russ recruited Wilhite for the Demon Deacons.

"The team, the boys on the team they're just like a high school," Wilhite said in a prior interview with Deacons Illustrated. "Everyone knows each other. Everyone hangs out together. That's the type of atmosphere I want to be around."

Wilhite rushed for 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns, returned two kickoffs back for touchdowns and caught eight passes for 100 yards to help lead the Hurricanes to a 13-3 record and state championship appearance.
He will likely redshirt, but with Wake Forest's lack of depth at running back that may change.
