Of Wake Forest's last five commitments, three were linebackers, with the latest one coming this week.
Westlake High (Waldorf, Md.) linebacker Marquel Lee, who also plays tight end, also had an offer from Maryland.
"I have committed to Wake Forest," the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Lee said.
Lee politely declined further comment because he wanted to speak with his coach and athletic director before giving a full interview, but he is excited to join the Demon Deacons' class.
He joins Ali Lamot of Eastern Alamance High (Mebane, N.C.) and Ford Howell of Memphis (Tenn.) University School as linebacker pledges.
