Wake Forest basketball got some much needed relief with the news earlier today that Isaiah Mucius was staying.
Then later in the day 2020 recruits Marcus Watson and Quadry Adams both announced that they would be staying committed to the Deacs.

Watson is a 5-11 4-star point guard out of Chicago, and could potentially be the starting point guard next season if Jahcobi Neath decides not to return to Wake Forest.
Adams is a 6-3 3-star combo guard from Edison, New Jersey, and will likely see time at both guard positions next season.
Having three players in one day decide to remain committed to the team is a huge first step for new head coach Steve Forbes, who will have to be busy in the coming weeks trying to fill out the roster.
Forwards Ismael Massoud and Ody Oguama, guard Jahcobi Neath, and center Olivier Sarr have all entered the transfer portal in the last few days, but have left open the possibility of returning to the Deacs. Forbes’ first priority is to try to convince some, if not all, of these players to return next season, though Sarr is unlikely to return at this point.
