Wake Forest is in the midst of reshaping its roster after a series of departures this offseason.
The Demon Deacons may be closing in on filling one of its open spots. ESPN’s Jeff Borzello reported Thursday that Chattanooga graduate transfer Nat Dixon will visit Wake Forest this weekend. Borzello also reports that Dixon also plans to visit Ole Miss, and Nevada, Penn State and Memphis are also involved.

Dixon averaged 13.8 points and 4.6 rebounds while shooting 43.6 percent from the floor and 39.5 percent from behind the 3-point line last season for the Mocs.
The 6-foot-4 guard would be a welcomed addition for a Wake Forest team that has had five players step away from the program this offseason.
Redshirt junior guard Keyshawn Woods announced after the season that he would pursue other opportunities, either going pro or transferring. He has since made the decision to transfer, planning a visit to Ohio State this weekend, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
