Wafer Makes His College Pick

Surprise, surprise. After settling in at Heritage Christian School in Cleveland, Tex., Wafer wasted little time in selecting a college. The talented small forward is ACC bound.

FSU On A Major Roll!

Until about a month ago, Florida State was one of the schools just starting to get mentioned with Vakeaton Wafer. Well, they are in there strong now. According to Wafer's high school coach Jerome Tang, the recruiting process is over.

"He committed to them last night," Tang said. FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton will be in Cleveland on Friday to see his new prized prospect.

Wafer, the darling of the spring AAU circuit and star on the July scene, had been considering a number of schools. Then, he started the high school year out by switching high schools three times before settling in at Heritage Christian.

Florida State is starting to look really good on the wings with the athletic Anthony Richardson in the program and now Wafer on the way. Hamilton is taking the program's recruiting up a few notches. Wafer has a chance to be the school's second McDonald's All-American in three years. Hamilton also received some key juco commitments this week from Antonio Griffin and Diego Romero.

Academic questions have surround Wafer, but Tang says that he's doing well. "He's a great kid. As a student he's doing well and going to class. He's working hard."
