During his prep career at Snider, Jessie Bates III was a natural when it came to creating turnovers and causing havoc.
Those attributes have carried over to his collegiate game as well.
On Monday, Bates was named to the USA Today Sports All-Freshman Team. As a redshirt freshman this season at Wake Forest, Bates led the Demon Deacons in interceptions with five and was second on the team in tackles with 93. Bates also scored a pair of touchdowns on interception returns.
Last month, Bates was named All-ACC Second Team.
