Lowe, Pack Score 2007 Recruit

The North Carolina State Wolfpack is on the board in the Class of 2007. In-state small forward Johnny Thomas selected the Wolfpack over the weekend after hearing from a number of schools in the ACC area.

Sidney Lowe took a pair of 2006 commitments earlier this month and now he and his staff are moving to the Class of 2007.

On Sunday, the Wolfpack secured a commitment from Johnny Thomas, a 6-foot-5 small forward out of Greensboro (N.C.) Greensboro Day School. Thomas had an offer from Miami and was hearing from Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Thomas participated in last weekend's NBA Players Association Camp and runs with the N.C. Gaters. He's made a position transition and is now working on using his athleticism at the small forward slot.

"The deciding factor was that I could fit in the program at State," Thomas told PackPride over the weekend. "Another big factor was coach Lowe. He's a great guy. I enjoyed being around him. I got to sit down and talk to him and get to know him and he's the type of guy I fit in well with."
