Five-star prospect Jaylen Hoard verbally committed to Wake Forest on Saturday, he told Scout. “I picked them basically because that was the school that I felt like I had the best relationship with the coaches,” Hoard said. “I feel like I can trust them. They have a great relationship with my parents. The coach made me feel like a priority, the whole time They came to AAU games and they were able to come see me during the high school season.” Hoard never released a narrowed down list of college suitors, but a number of high major schools have been trailing him, including USC, NC State, Florida, Maryland and others.
