Arnaud Adala Moto is headed to Wake Forest, the Deacs fifth 2012 recruit.

Wake Forest head coach Jeff Bzdelik no longer has to plead the fifth [recruit]. According to Team Takeover's Keith Stevens, his 6-6 small forward Arnaud Adala Moto (Alexandria, VA/Episcopal) has committed to the Demon Deacons, rounding out Bzdelik's 2012 recruiting class of five strong. 

And we mean strong.

Moto joins 6-1 PG Codi Miller-McIntyre (Chatham, VA/Hargrave Military Academy), 6-7 SF Aaron Rountree (Wilson, NC/Greenfield), 6-10 C Andre Washington (Rocky Mount, VA/Hargrave Military Academy) and 6-8 PF Tyler Cavanaugh (Dewitt, NY/Jamesville-Dewitt). 

Rivals' 22nd ranked small forward in 2012, Moto, who's a native of Cameroon, chose Wake Forest over offers from Georgia Tech, George Mason, Maryland, UCLA, N.C. State, Florida, and Vanderbilt, among others.

Moto averaged 19.0 points per game last season for Episcopal, leading the team to a 25-3 overall record and 7-0 in league play. Known for his scoring ability, Moto's an exceptional athlete who plays with a high motor. Check out the footage below, courtesy of CLHTV
