Wake Forest Basketball Recruiting: 2015 Point Guards

A look at Wake Forest's need and offers at point guard for the 2015 class.

Likely scholarship players:
Madison Jones (Senior)
Mitchell Wilbekin (Sophomore)

This is not likely a position of need for Wake Forest in the 2015 class. Mitchell Wilbekin will likely get many chances to prove himself during the 2014-15 season and should be ready for a starting role his sophomore year. Madison Jones has established himself as a solid reserve player and should fill a role during his senior year. Should either player struggle, Codi Miller-McIntyre will be able to play the position. A depth option at point guard would be nice, but it does not appear to be a major position of need for Wake Forest.

Offers (according to Verbal Commits):

Allonzo Trier (5 star ESPN):
Trier is one of the most talented scorers in the 2015 class, but he can also run the point.. He is the leading scorer in the Nike EYBL, consistently scoring over 30 points each game. He can score in a multitude of ways, even while facing double and triple teams. His scoring ability would be a great compliment to Wake Forest's guards. Trier and Miller-McIntyre would form one of the best scoring backcourts in the ACC. Trier will be extremely hard to get though, as he has offers from Kansas, UCLA, UConn and Louisville, among many others. Allonzo Trier would be a great player for Wake Forest, but it is highly unlikely that Danny Manning can get a commitment from Trier.

Corey Sanders (4 star ESPN):
Corey Sanders was a one time commit to UCF, before he reopened his commitment due to an increase in interest. Sanders is one of the most athletic players in the 2015 class, leading him to become an internet sensation. He has offers from UNLV, Memphis and Xavier, as well as interest from Michigan and Florida. He will help a high major team, but may not be a great fit at Wake Forest. He is an athletic player, but does not have a great shot. If Wake Forest were to get a 2015 point guard, it would likely be a player who can stretch the floor, making Corey Sanders not a great fit.
