Another player they have taken note of is 6'7 swing man Jelan Kendrick. Kendrick is coming off a great spring and summer and has seen his recruitment skyrocket.
"I think this summer was great for me," said Kendrick. "I got a lot of experience and played against great competition. I am only 16 but played up a division and I think I held my own well. My coaches did a great job with me and I was able to get a lot of exposure which will help me realize my dream one day of getting a division one scholarship."
Kendrick is a multitalented and versatile player that has one goal every time he takes the court. "I just want to help my team win. I think my charisma on the court and my ability to bring the team together is one of my strengths. I will do whatever I need to for my team. Also, my versatility is a key for me. I am 6'7 and I can handle the ball and shoot it as well as play defense. I can play guard if my team needs me to."
At this point, Kendrick is hearing from many division one schools. "I have close to 20 offers now. I am really blessed to hear from all the schools because not many people in my area get this type of opportunity. I am very open right now."
When asked about Wake Forest, kendrick responded he is quite interested. "I am very interested in Wake. I look at guys like Tim Duncan and Chris Paul and they are not only great players but great people. I have noticed that the Wake staff does a great job developing players and making them great men. I have been to camp at Florida and Auburn and I plan on going to Wake to check out their campus and to watch a football game soon."
Kendrick said he does not have any favorites at this point and has no timeframe for a decision. He said he will take his time and let God lead him in the right direction.
Kendrick is not only a special player but a special person. He values academics and character in addition to basketball. He is a team first player with tons of ability and leadership qualities.
