Why NC State?: "I feel like they are on the come up. I just want to go in there and help bring the excitement back to Raleigh, N.C.
"The coaching staff has been on me all summer, since my whole high school season. They stayed on me real hard. They communicate with my family all the time. I just had that feeling about N.C. State."
Coach Quote: "T.J. is an extremely gifted offense talent. He has great size for a wing and can score at three different levels. He will be a tremendous addition to Coach (Mark) Gottfried's program at NC State. I know he's excited about returning home to Raleigh for his college career in the ACC." -- Brewster Academy Head Coach Jason Smith
Picked NC State Over: Georgetown, Florida, and North Carolina
Scouting Report #1: "This is a major pick up for N.C. State. Mark Gottfried and his staff spent a considerable amount of time working on him and it paid off. Warren is one of the best all-around scorers in the 2012 class. He shoots it at a high level, has an impressive skill set and can score it in a variety of ways.
"Adding Warren to a class that consists of Rodney Purvis and Tyler Lewis is a big deal. This is a great group of prospects and a class that will help them from a scoring standpoint right away." -- Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Evan Daniels
Scouting Report #2: "T.J. Warren is a kid who can really score the basketball. From the wing he is capable of getting hot from beyond the arc, but he is more than just a shooter. He is also someone who can get to the rim, he is fairly athletic, and he has the ability to be a multi-faceted scorer who has an immediate impact.
"For T.J., I would imagine he plays quite a bit as a freshman. Now he does have an adjustment, like most freshmen, on the defensive end in terms of showing effort and the desire to be a good defender, but physically he should be capable. Also he will have to adjust to how hard you have to work on a daily basis in practice, but his natural talent and ability to score should play right away for the Wolfpack." -- Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Brian Snow
