Wake solidifies future frontcourt 

July, 12, 2007
Wake Forest's 2008 class got real good, real fast with the additions of 6-8 Al-Farouq Aminu (Norcross, Ga.) and 6-10 Tony Woods (Rome, Ga.). Aminu's choice is doubly sweet for Skip Prosser and Co. because he chose the Demon Deacons over ACC rivals Georgia Tech, where his brother Alade plays, and North Carolina, which continues to lose out on its top targets.

Aminu, listed as the No. 3 power forward in the class by ESPN.com, has the athleticism to the play the three as well, while Woods becomes the second big man to verbally commit, joining 7-0 Ty Walker (Wilmington, N.C.). All three figure to be highly ranked in the ESPN 150 when it is released in August.
