O'Mara Talks Wake Forest, Visits

Class of 2014 Benet Academy center Sean O’Mara is among the top post prospects in the Midwest.  He is a skilled center that can score with his back to the basket with a variety of moves and is a plus passer.  Earlier in the week O’Mara narrowed his list to six finalists.  They are Loyola, Xavier, Wake Forest, Wichita State, Seton Hall, and UMass.

Last weekend O’Mara took a visit to one of those finalists in Wake Forest.  He spoke with us about how his visit to the Demon Deacons went.

“It’s a really nice campus, great academics, and the players were good guys.  I got to play in an open gym and really get a feel for what it would be like playing at Wake Forest.”

How does he feel he would potentially fit into their system?

“They play very similar to my AAU program and use two big guys on the floor, exploit mismatches, and get out in transition.  So as long as I run the floor, use my passing, and low post moves in the half court I think it’s a great system.”

He has two more official visits lined up to Loyola September 8th and 9th and Xavier September 15th and 16th.  O’Mara ran with IBA Select on the circuit throughout his prep career.
