Wake Forest basketball recruit Justin Gray was named to play in the Jordan Brand Capital Classic according to TheInsiders.com's Dave Telep. The Capital Classic, on of the most prestigious All-Star games for High School seniors, will be held April 11th at the MCI Center in Washington D.C.
Other future ACC players named to the All-Star game include Shavlik Randolph, JJ Redick, Michael Thompson, Sean May, Rashad McCants, Travis Garrison, Jarrett Jack, and Chris Bosh.
Current Demon Deacon Jamaal Levy played in last year's Capital Classic, scoring eight points, pulling down five boards, recording two assists, blocking three shots, and picking up two steals.
Wake Forest received their fourth verbal commitment for their 2002 recruiting class today when Justin Gray verbally committed to Wake Forest. Gray, a point guard, definitely seemed to be WFU's top choice at that position.
Gray is currently rated the 48th best prospect in the class of 2002 according to PrepStars and helps Coach Prosser to have one of the best recruiting classes (by the rankings) ever assembled at Wake Forest. With #40 Eric Williams, #48 Gray, #54 Trent Strickland and Richard Joyce who is just outside the top 100 all verbally committed, Wake's recruiting class is looking great.
Coach Prosser still has one scholarship available for use. It will, most likely, go to a power forward/center prospect.

Warren Wilkins' latest update on Justin Gray has Gray dropping Charlotte from his list and adding N.C. State, Clemson, Florida State, Tennessee, and Georgia along with WFU. His favorites, however, are listed as Clemson, N.C. State and Wake Forest. Gray is still not expected to commit soon, however.
Dave Telep's latest update on his site, BlueChipHoops.com, notes that Justin has narrowed down his choices down to just two. The 6'2" combo guard has reportedly dropped everyone off of his list except hometown college Charlotte and Wake Forest.
Telep also said that he did not expect a commitment from Gray to either Wake Forest or Charlotte in the near future. Gray is currently at the Nike camp in Indianapolis.
Guard Justin Gray is another one of Wake's primary recruting targets for 2001. The 6'2" combo guard is a highly sought after prospect originally from Charlotte.
Currently, Gray is ranked the #48 prospect nationally by PrepStars.
Thus far, the Deacs, N.C. State, Florida State, Clemson, South Carolina and UNC-Charlotte have all offered Gray scholarships. Indiana and Florida have both shown interest in Gray as well.
