Banks signs with Deacs

Apex (NC) Middle Creek defensive end Josh Banks signed with Wake Forest at 9:30 AM today, Feb. 1.

Rivals.com rates the 6-foot-4, 255-pound Banks as a two-star recruit.

He committed to Wake Forest July 17. Ray McCartney and Steve Russ recruited Banks for the Demon Deacons.

"Pretty much I had a good feeling about the place," Banks said in a prior interview with Deacons Illustrated. "It felt like home, so I felt like I should go ahead and make my decision instead of wasting other coaches' time. The first thing I noticed about him [Grobe] was his personality, I really liked it. He's very excited about recruiting and he told me that I could have an impact on the team. That was cool to hear."

This season Banks led Middle Creek to a 10-4 record and third-round appearance in the state playoffs. He recorded 100 tackles and 12 sacks.
