East Lake defensive back Justin Strnad announced via Twitter that he has committed to Wake Forest.

"I liked Wake Forest because of the high level academics, the coaching staff, the campus, the people and the ACC," Strnad said.

Last season, Strnad had 81 tackles and a fumble recovery. His recruiting picked up in the spring with 18 offers. He said he decided on the Demon Deacons over UCF and Illinois. Last month, Strnad visited Wake Forest, which wants him to play a hybrid linebacker that can excel in pass coverage.

Strnad is the third East Lake player from the Class of 2015 who has committed to a Division I program, joining Daniel LaCamera (Texas A&M) and Carson Lydon (Virginia Tech).

"I wanted to get this decision done so I could enjoy my senior season with my teammates and not be distracted as we try to get a state championship," Strnad said.
