Wake Forest Basketball Recruiting: 4-Star Guard Kwe Parker Set To Announce College Choice By July

Could Wake soon be adding another player to the 2016 class?

Kwe Parker, who is quite possibly the most electrifying high school basketball player in the country, is set to announce his college decision before July. He is a consensus 4-star guard, who attends Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point, North Carolina. He is high school teammates with top Wake target Harry Giles, and current Wake commit Brandon Childress. He is currently sidelined with a foot injury, but holds offers from Wake Forest, Nebraska, Florida State, and Rutgers, among others.

Currently, all of six of 247's predictions have Kwe headed to the Demon Deacons, which is why the timing of his announcement is good news for Wake Forest, in my opinion. He has visited the campus countless times, and is very close friends with Brandon Childress.

Parker is well-known for his dunking, with excellent reason, but he is more than just a dunker. He has a respectable mid-range jumper and a solid handle. He also uses his freakish athleticism to be an outstanding defender. Under Danny Manning, Wake Forest plays an up-tempo system that would help maximize Parker's skill set.

Until Parker officially announces, we'll all have to play the waiting game, but the timing of this announcement does appear to be great news for the Deacs.
