Arnaud Moto could be the go-to player for Wake as a freshman.
Wake Forest coach Jeff Bzdelik has finally signed a talented group of his own to build the program. This six-man recruiting class features three players with four-star ratings. The other three have three-star ratings.
Arnaud Moto, a 6'6" small forward, is the top signing in the class as the Virginia native is a top 50 talent. Moto can best be described as an athletic, high-energy scorer, whether attacking the basket or shooting it from the beyond the arc. Moto is more than that, though, as he is a quality rebounder and very strong defender.
Codi Miller-McIntyre is a tough 6'2" point guard that should immediately take over in that role. McIntyre is a leader who makes his teammates better as he makes smart plays and good passes to get them open shots, but he can also hit his own shots to keep the opposing defense honest.
Aaron Rountree, a 6'7" small forward, is the other four-star recruit in this class. Rountree has high upside. Roundtree, who has very good athleticism, is capable of making his presence felt on both sides of the court.
7'0" center Andre Washington adds size, although he needs to add bulk before making a major impact in the ACC. Washington will have very high upside player once he fills out his body and rounds out his skill set.
Power forward prospect Tyler Cavanaugh is a New York product who turned down a Syracuse scholarship offer to play in the ACC. He's a Euro-type player in that he plays a face up game as a big man with a well rounded skill set, but none of those skills really stand out and at 6'8" 215 pounds he isn't overly physical.
Devin Thomas is the big man prospect with the strength to compete immediately at 6'7" 235 pounds. The Harrisburg, Penn., product is a high-energy guy who should provide some help on the boards early on.
This class should re-stock the depleted Wake Forest roster and give coach Bzdelik at least some hope of competing in the conference next season. Moto and Miller-McIntyre are both potential stars. After helping Alec Burks develop while at Colorado, Bzdelik should help these recruits to maximize their potential at Wake.
