And another transfer has chosen his destination. Big man Carson Desrosiers is headed to Providence, according to Adam Zagoria. Desrosiers was also considering Vanderbilt and Oregon State.

Providence was putting on a full charge at Desrosiers as of a few weeks ago, and the hard work seems to have paid off, as the center will now be Big East bound.

In the story on ZagsBlog, Desrosiers said:

"Just committed to PC," he said by text. "I connected with Coach [Ed] Cooley instantly and everybody’s excited for the immediate future of PC basketball, including myself."

All three of Wake Forest's transfers after the 2011-12 season are close to finding new homes. Anthony Fields is transferring to Bradley, and Tony Chennault is reportedly close to landing at Villanova.

Desrosiers started 16 games for Wake Forest this season, averaging 4.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. He showed promise at the tail end of the season, scoring 9.75 points per game in the final four regular season contests. Desrosiers was the only returning center for the Demon Deacons, and the team was hoping for a big jump between his sophomore and junior seasons.

The Deacs are currently bringing in seven new players, and will look to freshmen forwards Devin Thomas, Tyler Cavanaugh and Arnaud Moto, as well as center Andre Washington to shoulder the load in the post. Junior Travis McKie might also see time at the power forward position.

Wake Forest is also reportedly looking into bringing in an eighth player to shore up post depth, most likely in the form of a post-graduate or JuCo.
