They already stole Ty Walker from UNC out of NC and now it sounds more and more like they are going to land Tony Woods and Al-Farouq Aminu out of the state of Georgia. That would be 3 5-star players (2 of the Top 10) going to Wake????? Something is really not adding up.

That sounds fishy for sure...

Skip Prosser has shown that he can develop players for the nba with that pg for the New Orleans Saints tearing it up.

WF is a great school, and kids prob. realize there's more playing time at WF as oppose to a school like UNC where they could just become another cog in the machine.

I've got a lot of respect for Prosser. I don't know if you'all know this but he didn't play basketball and has no background in it. He was teaching 5th grade years ago and they just told him to coach the basketball team since they needed somebody.

He's a hard worker, but these last two post-Chris Paul years have been dreadful, so it makes you wonder, but GM32, as a florida fan you know how it is when somebody questions and up and coming program getting talent.

Good for Wake. It's always good when someone challenges UNC and Duke in the ACC. Looks like they're building to do just that. I thought their class last year was very, very good, even though it didn't get a whole lot of acclaim.

Yes, they are. I'm a big Sidney Lowe fan.

yeah, they beat Tennessee for JJ Hickson, plus top 40 player Tracy Smith is coming in. Duke seems a step behind on recruiting... players are saying they don't feel like they fit in with Duke's current players.

K-Tub, I am not saying they are cheating. I am saying it simply doesn't add up. For instance, Woods and Walker are both tru 5's. 2 5 star true centers in one class? 3 5 star players to any school? I don't think Wake is a school that would ever tolerate cheating to excell in athletics. There are just things that don't make sense when you look at it. Namely, the 2 true centers in one class.

I still don't think it's a big deal, because I would think Prosser (like Roy Williams and Gillispie seem to do) will take the first of those two centers to commit.
