It is no secret Wake Forest is in need of a wing in the 2009 class. One of their top targets is Tristan Spurlock, a 6'6 wing from Montrose Christian School in Rockville, Maryland. Early in his recruitment, some schools were telling him he was going to be a undersized power forward in college. Spurlock took that as a challenge and has worked tirelessly on his game.
"It feels good that the hard work I have put in is paying off," said Spurlock. "I get up at 6am every morning and shoot over 300 jump shots. I want to prove to coaches that I am a legit small forward or shooting guard at the next level. I think this spring and summer has been a coming out party for me and I think I have been playing well so far."
Spurlock now claims offers from Clemson, Wake Forest, Georgetown, N.C.State, Virginia, and Florida State. Although Spurlock has a long list of suitors already, Wake Forest is still in the running. "Wake is in good shape with me," he said. "I am still very interested in Wake and I plan on visiting them this summer. The only visit I have set in stone right now is to Virginia this weekend."
When asked when he wanted to make a decision, Spurlock responded that he will take a few months to do so. "I plan on deciding in late summer or by September at the latest. I definitely want to decide before my school season starts."
