Wake Forest lands commitment from four-star seven-footer

1 Comment

Danny Manning has landed his second four-star recruit in his first recruiting class at Wake Forest, as 7-foot-1 center Doral Moore pledged to the Demon Deacons early on Wednesday morning.

The news was first reported by Rivals.com.

The fit couldn’t be more perfect for Moore. At this stage in his career, he’s a center with loads of potential that still has a long way to go in his development. He’s got broad shoulders and long arms, making him an excellent shot-blocker at this stage in his development, and he’s also developed a nice touch on his shot. He needs to become more aggressive and confident in the post, and adding strength certainly would help him along the way, but the good news is that Moore just committed to one of the best coaches in the country when it comes to developing big men.

This commitment is a bit of a coup for Manning, as Moore, who ranks as the No. 48 player in the class of 2015, had recently cut his list to five schools: Kentucky, Florida, Ohio State, Illinois and Wake Forest.
