Carson Desrosiers rounds out excellent Wake recruiting class


Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio and staff received excellent news today that Carson Desrosiers has decided to become a Demon Deacon.  Click through for the details!

After a hot start to the 2010 recruiting class, Wake Forest basketball recruiting had been relatively quiet for several months on the commitment front.  However, that changed today when Carson Desrosiers, a 6'11" center from Lawrence, Massachusetts, gave the Deacs a verbal pledge.  Desrosiers shot up the Scout.com ratings this summer after strong performances in the Las Vegas AAU tournaments.  Currently, he is rated at the #8 center in the 2010 class and #38 overall.

Scout's Dave Telep describes Desrosiers as a "hard working, skilled big man" who "has legit size and went from prospect to player in the latter stages of his summer basketball journey."  Desrosiers is noted as having good shooting ability out to the perimeter and is very versatile for a guy his size. In an excellent article from his junior season, an opposing coach had this to say after Desrosiers :

"You can't guard him down low, and he can step out and hit that three. He's just so tough to guard. We have good bigs, but our bigs are 6-8, 6-9 he (plays like) 7-foot or 7-foot-plus."

The big center, who averaged 18 points, 13 rebounds and 8 blocks per game last season, recently narrowed his choices down to Wake, Arizona State and Marquette, but also previously held offers from Syracuse, Georgia Tech and Stanford, among others.

Desrosiers completes a great haul for Gaudio and staff, which now has a complete 2010 lineup with Philly point guard Tony Chennault, spectacular shooting guard J.T. Terrell, versatile small forward Travis McKie, tough power forward Melvin Tabb and the aformentioned Desrosiers.  The class will likely be top five nationally, giving Gaudio his second top five class in the last three years.

Welcome to Wake, Carson!
