View Full Version : How will Wake Forest be next year?

Wake loses its star Al-Farouq Aminu, plus fellow starters Ish Smith, Chas McFarland and LD Williams.

Any drop-off at all, or are they reloading for a better team?

They supposedly have a great class coming in and one of their frosh killed us from 3 point land in the Kennel.

Ish Smith will be a huge loss for them. I don't think they will be quite as good.

Barring the Zags committing any flagrant fouls and getting tossed from the game <wink, wink>, GU should be better. :)

According to Scout.com, Wake Forest has the #10 recruiting class in the country:


Other GU opponents also have top ranked recruiting classes:

Xavier #21

Duke #8 (possible opponent in CBE tournament)

Illinois #6

Memphis #1

I think they will be like Memphis this year. Saying that could play out next year like that with us. Say we beat Wake there, and maybe lost to Memphis here.

I think it is hard to say right now. Four starters and a top assistant gone. They have had a lot of coaching turmoil the last couple of years with another assistant having just left last year, too.

It could be a very tough year for them but with some flashes of brilliance. Hopefully they don't have one of those flashes against the Zags. I think a veteran Zags squad takes them.
