Scout.com Profile: Tallahassee Wildcats

The Tallahassee Wildcats have a good blend of youth, size and athleticism. They also have one major surprise on their roster.

TEAM OVERVIEW – Aaron Holmes has already committed to N.C. State and may have the biggest name of anyone on the roster, except for out-of-stater Stanley Robinson. Add in big man Marreese Speights along with 2007 guys like Gary Clark and Cameroon natives Erick Nsangou and Cedric Essola and you have a team to watch.
