Wake Forest 2012-2013 Basketball Recruiting MegaThread

via img.gatorarcade.com

Thanks to Zack Stonz for getting all of this information together. We will keep it updated, and keep it featured on the side of BSD for easy access for everybody. This is also a thread that we can discuss recruits, strategies, who we are going after, and any other questions that may be posed about the recruiting process.

In short, this is all the information that you will ever need to know about Wake Forest's 2013 recruiting class. It will be updated very frequently, and we will attempt to conduct interviews with nearly everybody on this list to get inside their heads about what schools they hold in high regards. If there is anything that you want us to do, you can ask us and we will throw that up there too if at all feasible.

Hope this provides a lot of solid information so you can all wow your friends with your Wake Forest knowledge. It will also provide y'all a chance to help out with the site. Anything that you see on these players/or any other player that is not up here can be linked in the comment section and we will throw that up there. When the high school basketball season starts, if you live near a guy on here, you can go see a couple of games and let us know what you think of the player. All of this will help out tremendously, and make this the "go-to" place for Wake Forest basketball recruiting.

Note: All of this color coding is based on my analysis of the situation which, in turn, is based on the articles linked under each player. Thus the color coding is not even the slightest bit official, and is constantly subject to change.
