2023 College Recruiting - 3 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on April 12, 2022
Wake Forest logo DL Chris Marable (Hilton Head Island, SC) commits to Wake Forest  View Class

Marable (6-3, 283) hasn't played a lot of football yet. He was injured as a freshman and had most of his sophomore year wiped out with COVID-19. But a very good junior season put Marable on the map with FBS programs. He is a natural interior guy who is comfortable taking on the double teams and fighting through them to make plays. Marable has some active hands, and he is just a physical player overall. I really like this prospect and think Wake Forest's staff will get the most out of him.

Chris Marable's Player Grade: B-
Wake Forest logo OL/DL George Steih (Franklin, TN) commits to Wake Forest  View Class

Steih (6-5, 260) is a two-way lineman who plays a lot on the defensive side. I could possibly see Steih working out as a 3-4 defensive end - a guy who would be primarily used to contain things on the perimeter. As an offensive lineman there might be more potential upside. Steih has a good body frame with long arms. He could be a potential fit at right tackle down the road. He is a player who is more of a developmental prospect, but Wake Forest has traditionally done very well with those prospects.

George Steih's Player Grade: C
Wake Forest logo DL Ka'Shawn Thomas (Brunswick, GA) commits to Wake Forest  View Class

Some people wonder why I'm so high on Dave Clawson as a recruiter and evaluator, and the case of Thomas (6-0, 308) is a perfect example. Many of the top-end Power Five programs are going to be a little scared off because of Thomas' height. But he's a hell of a player, and he dominates action in the middle of the line. There isn't a play on film where Thomas isn't double teamed, and he bursts right through it to make plays almost every time. If Thomas were two inches taller, he'd be a top-100 prospect in the nation.

Ka'Shawn Thomas' Player Grade: B
