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."
