Wake lands fifth for 2012

Saturday turned out to be a good day for the Wake Forest basketball program as it added a fifth member to the 2012 recruiting class.
Hard-playing Fairfax (Va.) Episcopal small forward Arnaud Adala Moto gave Jeff Bzdelik's program the nod on Saturday.
Adala Moto's summer coach, Keith Stevens, of Team Takeover confirmed the news and says that Wake is getting a guy that will be fun to coach and a player fans will love.
"He's a coach's dream," Stevens told "He brings his hard hat every day and he's an intelligent kid and basketball player. He brings versatility to the game."
Powerfully built and unafraid of contact, Adala Moto is a hybrid 6-foot-6 wing who loves to power his way inside. While he's a power-broker, the three-star forward is also developing into a pretty skilled scorer away from the hoop.
Currently ranked No. 118 nationally in the 2012 Rivals150, Adala Moto joins a solid class for Wake. Already committed are four-star combo guard Codi Miller-McIntyre, three-stars Andre Washington and Aaron Rountree along with skilled power forward Tyler Cavanaugh.
