WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) The recruit who says Louisville asked him to delay his enrollment shortly before signing day is headed to Wake Forest.

Coach Dave Clawson said Wednesday that running back Matt Colburn has signed.

Colburn was ''Mr. Football'' in South Carolina and told The State newspaper in Columbia that he committed to Louisville last June.

He made headlines last week, saying a Cardinals assistant told him he wouldn't accept his letter of intent on signing day. Colburn says he was asked not to enroll until January 2016 - a process known as ''grayshirting.''

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino defended the move last week, saying ''this is the one time as a college coach that you get to try to manage your roster.''

Wake Forest says Colburn will participate in preseason camp in August.
