The talented 6'9 wing decided to end his recruitment and join coach Jeff Bzdelik's program.
"I have decided to be a Demon Deacon," said Rountree. "I have known for a few weeks Wake was the place for me. It was just a matter of timing. Codi (Miller-McIntyre) is a good friend of mine and he has been talking to me a lot since he has committed. Wake is a great fit for me."
Rountree was in no way deterred by the tough season the Demon Deacons have endured.
"It is an opportunity. I want to come in and help get Wake Forest back where they belong. It is a great academic school and has a great basketball tradition. I know the team will be better next season and in 2012 when Codi and I get there."
Rountree is a real stat stuffer and will bring a very versatile and well rounded game to the Demon Deacon program. He is also a first class student and citizen and will be a very big asset on and off the court during his time at Wake Forest.
