Blogger So Dear recaps the ACC games from Nov. 19
On the whole, Gaudio continues to recruit at a high level. The next step now will be getting that production to translate into eye-catching success on the court, particularly in the postseason.
Demon Deacons coach Dino Gaudio & Co. continue to bring great players to Winston-Salem, N.C. So far, so good for 2010. This class has a little of everything. SG J.T. Terrell (Burlington, N.C./Burlington Cummings) can put points on the board as well as anybody in the country. If he is willing to continue to develop his game's weaknesses, his upside is quite promising because he loves to compete. Travis McKie (Richmond, Va./Marshall) is an athletic, energetic small forward who can do a little of everything. He is a winner. Melvin Tabb (Raleigh, N.C./Enloe) is a hardworking power forward who understands what he does well and doesn't deviate from his strengths. He can score on the block and out to 15 feet. Carson Desrosiers (Windham, N.H./Central Catholic) is a skilled advanced project. He is a high-post player who can shoot 15-footers. He has nice length and is a solid athlete. Tony Chennault (Philadelphia/Neumann-Goretti) is a solid point guard who can score and run the show.
At first, Tyson Clabo couldn’t keep a job in the NFL. He bounced around from team to team – four teams, in fact, in his rookie year alone – and wasn’t sure he would ever get noticed.
Then he got his lucky break.
The former Wake Forest standout took advantage of it, and in doing so finally found a home with the Atlanta Falcons.
WAKE FOREST (4-7) -- DT John Russell. He has started all 11 games, including last week when he played the whole game against Florida State with a cast on his right hand. For the season, Russell has 42 total tackles (17 solo), one quarterback hurry and leads the team with 4.5 sacks for minus-40 yards and eight tackles for a total loss of 49 yards.
