Three Expected To Sign Wednesday

Wake Forest's basketball program is expected to add three new recruits on Wednesday as three of the nation's top 50 prospects are expected to sign with the University. Al-Farouq Aminu, Tony Woods, and Ty Walker are all slated to sign with the Demon Deacons Wednesday.

The following is Scout.com recruiting analyst Evan Daniels' comments on each of Wake Forest's commitments in the class of 2008, a class Scout.com currently ranks as #4 in the nation.

On small forward Al-Farouq Aminu
Al-Farouq Aminu is one of the best wings in the class of 2008 and has a chance to make an immediate impact at Wake Forest. He has great size, is versatile, and shoots the ball with consistency.

On power forward Ty Walker
As good as Ty Walker is, he still hasn't reached his potential. Defensively, the 7-footer is a talented shot blocker with great timing. Offensively he is more of a shooter than back to basket player at this point. Once he gains strength and learns how to post up, he should be a force for the Demon Deacons.

On center Tony Woods
Tony Woods is a big, long kid that has a chance to be a good player for the Demon Deacons. Throughout his high school career, he showed flashes of what he can become. He's an above average athlete, runs the floor well, and is a good rebounder.

On Wake Forest's class as a whole
All together, Wake Forest put together a great class and Dino Gaudio and his staff did a great job keeping this class together. With the talent that they have in place added to this class, the Demon Deacons should be tough in the ACC for years to come.
