The 7-foot center out of Brookline, Massachusetts becomes the fourth member of the 2019 recruiting class

NCAA Basketball: Miami-Florida at Wake Forest Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

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:

Freshmen:

Jahcobi Neath Guard 6-3 170

Ismael Massoud Forward 6-8 200

Ody Oguama Forward 6-9 190

Charles Coleman Center 7-0 240

Sophomore:

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)

Junior:

Chaundee Brown Guard 6-5 215

Olivier Sarr Center 7-0 235

Sunday Okeke Forward 6-8 245 (Preferred Walk-On)

Senior:

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.
