WSSU signs 5 in latest football recruiting class

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Winston-Salem State went with quality instead of quantity in its latest football recruiting class.

Headlining the five players who have signed is running back Josh Wilhite, a former player at Wake Forest. Wilhite, who is 5-10 and 190 pounds, is from Fresno, Texas, and originally signed with the Deacons in 2012.

Wilhite redshirted in 2012 and then played his one and only season for the Deacons in 2013, which was coach Jim Grobe’s last as Wake Forest’s head coach.

“He played for Independence Community College in 2015 but then went back to Wake Forest to work on his academics,” said Ryan McManus, the quarterbacks’ coach of the Rams and a former quarterback for the Deacons. “He’s been in Winston for awhile, and he wants to play again, so he’ll have two years of eligibility.”

In Wilhite’s only season at Wake Forest he played in eight games, rushing 22 times for 75 yards and a touchdown.
