Spurlock Still Lists Wake

Tristan Spurlock has been putting together a magnificent spring and summer on the AAU circuit. This has resulted in multiple offers from top notch programs including Wake Forest.

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."
