Deacon Dump 5/12: You know the drill

Still pretty quiet. We're keeping an eye on the pulse of recruiting and expansion. The men's golf team is heading to Regionals next week and hopefully can get mentally prepared to get out there and dominate. We've got a couple interesting things lined up that we're working on, so bear with us as we transition into the calm summer months.

Cincy grad gets to show he's still playing football | | The Marion Star
Mauk is hopeful what he has shown so far in the CIFL will gain him some attention. Back said the team has prepared some tape of Mauk and is sending it around to teams. "My goal this year was to play professional football and prove that I am healthy," Mauk said. " I know that if I am playing, they are still watching. I am reading coverages and seeing blitzes. At the end of the day I am still playing football." Huge Crowd Attends Final Shrine Combine
One of the standouts from Saturday was Wake Forest-Rolesville’s Dylan Intemann. The hulking offensive lineman turned a quite a few heads with his surprising agility and light feet. Measured at 6-4, 305 pounds, Intemann was timed at 5.2-seconds in the 40 and recorded a solid 4.69-second pro shuttle. He also had a 26.5-inch vertical jump and logged 18 reps of 185 pounds on the bench press. The Wake Forest commitment moved well and physically, the sky is the limit for this rising senior. Based purely on potential, Intemann very well may be the top in-state offensive lineman in what has been a down year for the position.

Another player outside the top 50 who could make a big impact next year is J.T. Terrell at Wake Forest. I'm not sure what kind of fit he will be for new coach Jeff Bzdelik's system, but Terrell -- a 6-4 guard from Charlotte (N.C.) West Charlotte -- is one of the best scoring guards in the 2010 class. He is limited in other areas, but there is no denying his ability to score.

NBA Mock Draft, Version 2.0 - Ridiculous Upside
6. Philadelphia 76ers - Al-Farouq Aminu, F (Wake Forest sophomore) I readily admit I'm not in love with this pick, but it's the one I made.  Really, the Sixers aren't going to be happy with this draft pick unless they are helped out in the lottery or are able to trade down and pick somebody that doesn't replicate, essentially, what they already have.  Plus, it seems to be fate.  May 10th Update:  I wrote the preceding for the first rendition of the mock draft with plans on putting a more tradition power forward in this space.  Then I hopped on over to Blogger So Dear, SB Nation's Wake Forest blog, to see what they thought, and it seems Aminu should translate better to the NBA than I had planned.
