But Sutton said he still favors the Deacons. "That's really where I want to go to," he said about Wake Forest.
There's no doubt about his ability to play, the reason he's not a Deac at this time has to be his grades. That's one reason Sutton decided to transfer to The Patterson School this year.
"It's improving a lot," he said of his class work. "I'm still waiting on them (Wake Forest) to see what they think about them and I'll just go from there."
Sutton has even been on Wake's campus quite a bit this season, as he went to two games at Joel Coliseum.
"I went and took my visit and during game day at the last few games I hung out with them got back there and talked to them," Sutton said about visiting with the team. "Two of my friends go there and they play on the team."
Kevin Swinton and David Weaver played AAU basketball with Sutton two years ago and he said that they are all very close and that's one reason he thinks Wake Forest is a good fit.
"They inspire me to go there. We have the whole chemistry thing going on we know how each other plays all three of us. I step my game up around them. When I play with them I know what Kevin can do and I know what David can do. We are just out there bonding."
Due to a higher level of competition and a more focus Sutton has been playing extremely well lately.
"It's more competition. It's not as easy to dominant a game. I'm up here with a lot of good players, but I get a chance to showcase my talent a little bit more. The competition level is high major. I'm loving it right now."
"It's helping my game a lot. It's showing me areas I need to work on and my weaknesses and stuff," he continued. "It's getting me better in the long run. It's helping my game a lot."
