Wake Transfers

Doesn't appear they are losing much time/production wise, but still makes you wonder if everything it ok at Wake:

Crawford, Dukes leaving Wake Forest basketball team

Wake Forest reserves Casey Crawford and Shamaine Dukes are transferring from the Demon Deacons, coach Skip Prosser said Friday.

Crawford, a freshman forward, and Dukes, a sophomore guard, will leave the school after the spring semester.

"Casey and Joe are first and foremost, outstanding young men," Prosser said. "Our entire coaching staff truly appreciates their contributions to the program and wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors."

Crawford, a 6-foot-9 forward from Overland Park, Kan., averaged 1.1 points and 0.4 rebounds in nine games, scoring a career-high five points in November against Air Force.

Dukes, a 6-1 guard from Cuthbert, Ga., was the Demon Deacons' backup point guard this season, starting a total six games during two seasons. He averaged 2.7 points and had 37 assists this season for Wake Forest.

I have heard some brief chatter about Prosser's recruitting tactics. Nothing really specific but there were some negative undertones. Could be that some of that is coming back to haunt him.

Prosser is not on the hot seat, nor is any other coach in the league, but another bad year at Wake & FSU next year and those coaching seats will start to get a little warm.
