Helms hails from Alpharetta, Ga and plays at Milton High School. He had interest from many high level schools and had offers from Cincinnati, Colorado State, ECU, North Carolina, South Florida, Syracuse, Troy and Utah State.
The big guy is 6'4, 290 according to Scout, and while more information should come out in the next few days, he looks to be a fantastic signing for the Deacs for the future. Helms recently visited Syracuse and South Florida, but ultimately decided that Wake Forest was the place where he wanted to be for the next 4-5 years. This will hopefully start to develop a little momentum on the recruiting trail, where the Demon Deacons are still trying to lock down their 2013 class.
