Wake In With Some Elite Small Forwards

The Demon Deacons are in with a few big time small forwards in the 2007 class. Here's a short breakdown of their game and who's recruiting them.

Small Forwards

Darquavis Tucker, of Saginaw, MI., is one of the best small forwards in the country. Tucker is one of the most athletic players in the class of 2007 and can jump as high as any in the class. Scout.com ranks him 17th in the country and 3rd at his position

Tucker plays for the Michigan Hurricanes in the summer along side one of the best guards in his class, Alex Legion. The two make for quite a duo and Tucker is the slasher that goes to the rack, finishes hard and rebounds well.

The schools recruiting Tucker are Michigan State, Miami (FL), Georgia Tech, Illinois, Georgetown, Duke, North Carolina and Wake Forest. He claims offers from Michigan State and Miami.

One player that Wake Forest fans have heard a lot about for quite some time is Eric Wallace. Wallace is known for his athleticism and high flying tricks, however as of late his stock has been on the down fall. He most certainly has the body to play in college as he is extremely built and stands 6-foot-6.

His jump shot seems to be the main thing holding him back. At times he shoots the ball very well, but his shot is very inconsistent. Wallace still has plenty of time to find his jumper and make his way back up the rankings.

Just some of the schools involved with Wallace are Wake Forest, UNC, Florida, Clemson, North Carolina State, Baylor and Virginia Tech.

Dominique Sutton is another player that Deacon fans are familiar with. Sutton, who has claimed Wake Forest as his leader, has a little work to take care of in the classroom. That's why Sutton is at The Patterson School in North Carolina.

There's no doubt about Sutton's game. Just as the other two players above, Sutton is very athletic and is working on his jump shot, which has been improving.

Sutton has said on a few occasions that Wake Forest is where he wants to go. Some other schools that have been involved at one point are Florida State, Miami, N.C. State, Washington, Florida and Virginia Tech.

Idris Hilliard listed Wake Forest to Jeff Goodman in late October and over the summer 6-foot-6 Tim Shelton listed the Deacons as well. Not sure how much interest is being shown for those two, but they are players to keep an eye on.
