DeaconSports Exclusive Interview: Will Sheridan

DeaconSports chats with Sheridan after his impressive performance at the TOC and his visit to WFU. Sheridan talks about his impression of Wake Forest and his recruitment plans.

DeaconSports got back in touch with Wake Forest recruiting prospect Will Sheridan after his visit to Wake Forest and the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions this past weekend in North Carolina.

Sheridan, a very polite prospect out of Hockessin, Delaware, visited the Wake Forest campus Thursday with his mother and father.

"It was a great experience," Sheridan told DeaconSports. "I learned a lot more about Wake that I might not have learned on the internet or by what people said. The assistant coaches were very hospitable and showed that they wanted me."

Sheridan said that Wake had a "great campus" and he loved the fact that everything was in one area on campus. "There are a lot of new facilities and the student-athlete building and academic buildings are nice as well."

Sheridan was shown the Joel as well and was impressed. "I liked the new plans for locker room," Sheridan noted. "They are re-doing the entire locker-room instead of just putting a band-aid on it and patching it up. The plans look nice."

As for his future unofficial and official visits, Sheridan said he has seven schools he would like to visit including Wake Forest. "Virginia, Notre Dame, Michigan, Rutgers, Seton Hall, and Villanova" are the other options he is seriously considering at this point, although he says he is still open. Sheridan's top seven, Tennessee, and UNC-Charlotte are the other schools that have offered him a scholarship.

"I'm going to take a couple more unofficials and then I should have a strong feeling for [where I will want to take] the official visits," Sheridan said. He also noted that that just because a team does not get an official visit does not mean he won't attend that school.

Sheridan was happy with his performance in the Tournament of Champions this past weekend too, as Sheridan's squad won the championship of the select tournament. "I liked being in North Carolina and had a strong tournament. I did some things [on the court] that I didn't do as well in the past. I played pretty well."

Sheridan's next tournament is the Rumble in the Bronx in New York. He will also attend the ABCD camp and his AAU squad will play in Las Vegas and Georgia later in the summer. He will also attend the United States Junior Olympic festival in Colorado this summer.
