Wake Forest Wide Receiver Sage Surratt

Surratt finished 2019 with 66 receptions for 1,001 yards and was third in the ACC with 11 receiving TDs. A first-team All-ACC performer in 2019, Surratt was also named third-team All-American by Athlon.

Surratt and the Wake passing offense will be a big test for Miami in 2020.
