Wake Forest picks up Wilbekin

Mitchell Wilbekin made his college commitment on Monday. The Gainesville (Fla.) The Rock School standout will play in the ACC.

Mitchell Wilbekin had planned to take one more college visit, but on Monday he decided he didn't need to see any more schools.

Wilbekin informed Scout.com that he committed to Danny Manning and Wake Forest.

"My relationship with coach Manning and the rest of the staff, a chance to play in the ACC, a program that has lots of history are all things I wanted and am now getting at Wake," Wilbekin told Scout.com.

Wilbekin took an official visit to Wake Forest this past weekend. Originally, Wilbekin had committed and signed to play for Manning at Tulsa.

What type of player is Wake Forest getting?

"A scoring [point guard] who can play some off the ball and also get my teammates involved," Wilbekin said. [I'm] willing to do whatever it takes to win."

Wilbekin said his college decision came down to Wake Forest, Virginia and USF.
