Tony Woods: Signing Day Update

Wake Forest received letters-of-intent from forwards Al-Farouq Aminu and Ty Walker this afternoon. Tony Woods was expected to sign late in the afternoon but, as of early Wednesday evening, the letter-of-intent had not been sent to Wake Forest. DeaconSports caught up with Woods for an update.

"I signed today with Wake but probably won't have it sent in until tomorrow morning," Tony Woods said Wednesday evening. "It is in the hands of my coach and he will get that done."

According to Woods, a small gathering of teammates, family, friends, Rome High's women's team, and selected members of the press were on-hand as he signed his letter-of-intent.

"In general, it was Coach Prosser at first that got me to Wake. He's a great guy and a good recruiter. Then of course playing with Al-Farouq [Aminu] and the education you can get. Plus, they play good basketball, are in the ACC with a good chance to have a real good team in the coming years. I've also got a chance to come in and make an impact as a freshman."

Along with Ty Walker and Al-Farouq Aminu, Tony Woods helps comprise one of the nation's top recruiting classes. "Everytime we're together, we're talking about making the NCAA tournament and making a difference at Wake Forest," Woods said.
