You’ve all been asking for it, and now that things have settled down with regard to roster movement, here it is. The 2020-21 Wake Forest Basketball Scholarship Chart.
Coach Steve Forbes and staff have currently filled 12 of the 13 scholarships for the 2020-21 season, leaving them with one scholarship still available. It is likely that they do not want to use a scholarship on another class of 2020 player after the addition of Emmanuel Okpomo, so look for the scholarship to either be vacant for the coming season or filled by a late grad transfer addition. Or perhaps preferred walk-on senior Sunday Okeke could be granted the scholarship.
Jonah Antonio, Ian DuBose, and Jalen Johnson are all grad transfers that will use their last year of eligibility in the 2020-21 season.
The Deacs will have no true seniors on scholarship on the roster this coming year after the transfers of Chaundee Brown and Olivier Sarr.
Isaiah Mucius is the lone returning junior, but is joined in his class by transfers Isaiah Wilkins from Virginia Tech and Daivien Williamson from East Tennessee State. Williamson will have to sit out a year unless he is granted a waiver by the NCAA. Wilkins was granted a waiver earlier this month. Williamson has two years of eligibility remaining, and could add a scholarship to the 2022-23 season if his waiver request is not granted by the NCAA.
All four sophomores are returning from last season with Ody Oguama, Jahcobi Neath, Ismael Massoud, and Tariq Ingraham all expected to contribute more significantly. Ingraham will see his first action in a Wake Forest uniform after tearing his left achilles during fall 2019 preseason activities. He is now classified as a redshirt freshman, and has four years of remaining eligibility.
Quadry Adams and Emmanuel Okpomo make up the freshman class for next season.
The roster also includes preferred walk-ons senior Sunday Okeke and redshirt junior Miles Lester, as well as walk-ons junior Blake Buchanan and sophomore Grant van Beveren.
Here is a look at the roster for the 2020-21 season:
Isaiah Mucius Junior Forward 6-8 195
Jahcobi Neath Sophomore Guard 6-3 200
Tariq Ingraham Redshirt Freshman Forward 6-9 250
