Arnaud Adala Moto of Episcopal H.S. (Alexandria, VA) is one of five prized 2012 recruits for Wake Forest.

While sniffing around the Web this A.M., we came across this fresh highlight mix of Aaron Rountree (Wilson, N.C./Greenfield), a 6-8 senior small forward who verbaled to Wake Forest. 

Known as a pass-first wingman, Rountree's capable of knocking down the open shot and finishing in transition. Don't take it from us, though. Check out this mix of his game.

And while we're at it, we decided to round up some visuals of all of the Demon Deacon's 2012 commits. It's a top-15 class. They earned it.  

Andre Washington (Rocky Mount, VA/Hargrave Military Academy): You can't teach size, and Washington's got plenty of it. Listed at 6-10, Washington reclassified to 2012 and took his game to Hargrave, where he'll play against an elite national schedule and continue to work on building out his frame, improve his self-confidence and hone his big man skill set.  

Codi Mlller-McIntyre (Concord, N.C./Hargrave Military Academy): Washington's Hargrave teammate, Codi-Miller McIntyre is a strong 6-2 floor leader who can tally baskets and dole out assists. He ran with Carolina elite this summer and gives Wake coach Jeff Bzdelik a future leader on and off the court.  

Arnaud Adala Moto (Alexandria, VA/Episcopal): Moto, a 6-6 small forward, 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. He's listed as the 22nd best small forward in the country by Rivals and 118th overall in the class of 2012.  

Tyler Cavanaugh (Albany, N.Y./Jamesville-Dewitt): Cavanaugh picked the Deacs over in-state Syracuse, but will get a shot to play the Orange when they join the ACC. He averaged 16.0 points per game for Jamesville-Dewitt last season, winners of four consecutive New York Class 'A' public school state championships. A 6-8 face-up power forward, Cavanaugh can connect from the mid-range all the way out to the arc. He'll quickly find time in Wake Forest's rotation.

Note: While embeddable video isn't available for Cavanaugh, you can check out video of the four-man HERE, before he made his college selection.
