Melvin Tabb, a 6-foot-8 junior at Raleigh Enloe, made a verbal commitment to Wake Forest University on Saturday while on an unofficial visit to Winston-Salem.
The 6-foot-8 junior forward has helped the Eagles to a 21-1 record. He is averaging 15.9 points per game.
"He called Saturday and said he had committed to Wake Forest," said Enloe coach Tommy Moore. "Melvin has been very quiet about his recruitment. There have been lots of interest, but he hasn't talked much about it. He and his family have been handling most of that."
Moore said he had no question that Tabb would be a great addition to Wake Forest in the fall of 2010.
"Melvin is a tremendous player and he is going to get a lot better," Moore said. "He is improving every day. He is a good student and a very good player and person."
Moore said Wake Forest has been involved with Tabb for quite a while, but that other schools were recruiting him as well.
Tabb is ranked No. 73 on the scout.com top 100 junior list.
Wake Forest already had commitments from junior guards J.T. Terrell of Burlington Cummings and Tony Chenault of Philadelphia St. John Neumann.
