Pack Picks Up Top 50 Prospect

Courtney Fells, a 2005 shooting guard out of Shannon (Miss.) High, is one of the spring and summer's steadiest risers. Over the weekend, our No. 50 prospect reached a collegiate decision.

The North Carolina State Wolfpack went into Mississippi and landed themselves a player. Courtney Fells, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, picked the Pack on Sunday night.

"When I'm with them I just feel like I'm at home," Fells said. "If I feel like I'm at home then that's no better feeling. I just feel real comfortable around them and they're comfortable around me."

Fells entered the spring with virtually no national recruiting profile. After the Kingwood Classic, he was widely considered a Top 100 prospect. At Kingwood, Fells went on a shooting spree and dropped 3-pointers at a prolific rate.

After an outstanding event at the Tournament of Champions in North Carolina when he played the role of sidekick to Monta Ellis and the Magnolia Stars, numerous schools like Texas, Georgia Tech and a host of others began getting seriously involved.

In the end, it was the Pack, Mississippi and Georgia Tech comprising the final three for the No. 50 prospect. "I feel that I don't really need to visit these other schools because I think that I have a great school right here at N.C. State."
