Wake Forest basketball has added a fourth member to its 2019 recruiting class in 7-0, 240 pound center Charles Coleman.
Coleman is from Dexter High School in Brookline, Massachusetts.
He is the 62nd ranked center in the nation and the 5th in Massachusetts according to 247sports.
Coleman chose Wake Forest over offers from East Carolina, LSU, Boston University, Columbia, UConn, DePaul, Iona, UMass, Nevada, Oklahoma, UNLV, Rider, Quinnipiac, South Florida, and Stony Brook.
He becomes the fourth member of Danny Manning’s 2019 recruiting class, joining Canadian point guard Jahcobi Neath, small forward Ismael Massoud, and power forward Ody Oguama.
Assuming all players who are eligible return next year, here is the composition of the roster for next year:
Jahcobi Neath Guard 6-3 170
Ismael Massoud Forward 6-8 200
Ody Oguama Forward 6-9 190
Charles Coleman Center 7-0 240
Jaylen Hoard Forward 6-8 215
Isaiah Mucius Forward 6-8 195
Sharone Wright Jr. Guard 6-5 180
Michael Wynn Guard 6-6 200
Miles Lester Guard 6-0 170 (Preferred Walk-On)
Blake Buchanan Forward 6-5 195 (Walk On)
Chaundee Brown Guard 6-5 215
Olivier Sarr Center 7-0 235
Sunday Okeke Forward 6-8 245 (Preferred Walk-On)
Brandon Childress Guard 6-0 190
Andrien White Guard 6-3 190
Danny Manning has one scholarship left for next year assuming no transfers, so one would assume a grad transfer would be a good candidate to fill that spot, especially based on recent history. But Sunday Okeke should certainly be considered also.
Welcome Charles to the Demon Deacon family.
