Standing 5 feet, 9 inches, and weighing 180 pounds, DeShields is a game-breaking back “who’s the kind of kid that once he touches the ball, there’s really no telling what he could do,” Miller said. “Delino is one of those players that comes around maybe once or twice in a coach’s career,” Miller added. “He’s just one those guys that can make a coach look really good.” DeShields is the son of former Major League Baseball player Delino DeShields Sr., who played 13 years of professional baseball. He plans on playing baseball in college as well as football, though he has a chance at being drafted in the June 2010 MLB Amateur Draft. The younger DeShields has several scholarship offers to play football, most notably from Georgia Tech, Mississippi and Wake Forest.

He was the PGA Tour's Rookie of the Year in 1972, won the PGA Championship in 1977, was the PGA Tour's Player of the Year in 1985 and this spring was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame. Tough act to follow? Not really, according to Travis and Tucker Wadkins.

The Wake Forest coaches will need to work with him on shot selection, but they have to be awful happy they will have a scorer who presents them that challenge.

* Following his impressive performance Monday evening, Al-Farouq Aminu (6’8” F/Wake Forest) showed again why he is one of the top forwards on many draft boards.

He once again showcased his ability to get to the rim as he finished with several dunks in the half court and in transition.
