Wake Forest Basketball Recruiting: Could Wake Add a 4th Player to the 2015 Class?

Just when we thought the class was finished.

Wake Forest already has three commits for the 2015 recruiting class who have signed national letters of intent. Those three being Bryant Crawford, Doral Moore and John Collins, who combine to give Wake Forest a top 20 class in the country. It appears that Wake's basketball staff isn't completely done, however, as Danny Manning was in Massachusetts this weekend to watch 2015 prospect Curtis Cobb.

The addition of Cobb would mean Wake would be landing an outstanding shooter. Crawford, Collins and Moore are all fine players, but none of them are none as being excellent from the perimeter. The addition of Cobb would also mean that Wake Forest would be one over the scholarship limit, though there is likely to be additional roster attrition after the season due to lack of playing time.

Cobb currently only holds offers from UConn and Temple, but with Manning watching him personally and wanting to set up an official visit in the future, it's clear that Wake Forest has genuine interest in Cobb. I feel that a wing who can shoot/score is Wake's biggest area of concern headed into next season. Time will tell how Coach Manning and his staff  address this need.
