Wake still has an open scholarship. Who could fill it?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Wake Forest still has one available scholarship to offer as a result of junior forward Aaron Rountree graduating early and transferring. Until Danny Manning and his staff fills that scholarship, Blogger So Dear will continue reviewing candidates to fill Rountree's scholarship. Today we will look at Damion Lee, who averaged more than 20 points per game for Drexel last season. He will graduate early and be eligible to play next season. He made 39% of his three's, 89% of his free throws, and finished with an offensive rating of 118.4, despite a very high usage rate.

Today, Wake Forest head coach Danny Manning and assistant coach Randolph Childress began following Lee on Twitter. It's unclear how much, if any, communication has occurred between Wake Forest and Lee, but there is clearly some level of interest. Rightfully so given Lee's skill set and Wake's desperate need for a true scorer.

Damion Lee is probably the best case scenario for Wake Forest's final scholarship spot. Lee is a proven scorer who would make Wake Forest an NCAA Tournament team next season. He would also only use a scholarship slot for one season, which would allow Wake Forest to add more players to the deep 2016 class.

This is still in the early stages of the recruiting process for Lee. There's no doubt that there will be a line out the door for his services. Please continue to follow Blogger So Dear for the latest news regarding Wake Forest basketball recruiting.
