WAKE'S TEAGUE TO TEST NBA WATERS, JOHNSON HIRES AGENT

The good, but very young, Wake Forest team may never get a chance to play to its full potential. It's already getting dinged by the NBA.

A spokesman for Wasserman Media Group said Thursday that James Johnson has signed with their agency and will be represented by Dan Tobin. That means Johnson will not be able to return to play for the school.

The 6-foot-9 Johnson was the top rebounder with 8.5 per game and second on the team in scoring at 15.8 points. He's been projected to be a first-round pick in most mock drafts.

Wake Forest guard Jeff Teague also declared for the draft this week, but did not hire an agent. Coach Dino Gaudio believes Teague will return for his junior season.

Forward Al-Farouq Aminu is returning to Wake Forest for his sophomore season.
