Wake Forest Tracking 2010 Forward

Although he is just a sophomore, 6'5 small forward Tashawn Mabry is one of the top talents in the state of North Carolina. Mabry and his Rocky Mount High School teammates are off to a 9-3 start this season but he feels the best is yet to come.

"We are doing real well so far this season and are improving each week," said Tashawn Mabry of his team's start. "We are doing better than we did last season and we are going to have a good season."

Mabry has been a huge part of his team's success so far this season. Although just a sophomore, Mabry is averaging around 25 points per game but he feels his game will only get better as the season progresses. "I think I am playing really good so far but I want to improve each week as the year goes on," said Mabry. "I am really working to improve my outside jumper, ball handling, and defense this season."

Mabry has already displayed a wide array of skills this season. He had 37 points and 8 rebounds against Kinston recently and a season high of 41 against Hertford County. Mabry is confident in his abilities no matter who the competition is. "I just go out and play hard every game. I can go inside and outside and I feel like I can take whoever is guarding me on any given night," stated Mabry.

With his versatility and scoring touch, Mabry is hearing from a lot of high major schools. "I would say Wake Forest, N.C. State, Virginia, and Clemson are showing me the most interest right now. I have an offer from N.C. State at this point."

When asked about Wake Forest Mabry responded, "I don't have an official offer from Wake at this point but they have made it clear that they are very interested." Mabry's last visit to Winston-Salem was during football season to see the Deacs defeat Florida State. Mabry had some positive things to say about the Wake Forest program. "Wake is a real good school and they have a good atmosphere there. I really like the way the coaches treat me when I am up there. they make me feel like I am a part of the team."

At this point in his recruitment Mabry is open to all schools. "I don't have a favorite at this point," he noted. "I don't feel a lot of pressure as far as recruiting is concerned. I am open to all schools and will make a decision when the time is right."
