Deacons still searching for running back

When last season ended, Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe thought rising senior Kevin Harris was set as the starting running back this season.

Now, Grobe isn’t so sure.

Harris rushed for 136 yards in the Deacons’ EagleBank Bowl victory over Navy, the best rushing performance of the season for Wake Forest, which struggled to find offensive consistency.

In spring practice, however, the picture went fuzzy again.

“(Junior) Josh Adams had our best spring, Brandon Pendergrass (sophomore) was second and Kevin was third best,” Grobe said.

“Kevin is still the guy because he earned it during games but if we had to go into a game today, all three would play.”
