Huntington Prep (WV) center Moses Kingsley showed at the NBPA Top 100 Camp why he is considered one of the top big men in the 2013 class.

A prolific shotblocker and rebounder, Kingsley also showed that he could finish in the paint and around the rim.

"I thought I played well," said Kingsley. "But, I could always played better. I tried to go there and play my game."

Kingsley already held offers from programs such as Louisville, Florida, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi State, Memphis, and Tennessee when he added another on Tuesday.

"Coach Mark Gottfried from NC State called me on Tuesday and offered me," said Kingsley. "I had already been staying in touch with coach Early, so it was great when coach Gottfried offered me.

"It means a lot... anytime I pick up a big offer like that it means a lot. Coach Gottfried said that they like the way I rebound the ball. They also like how I block shots and run the floor."

Kingsley says he had a chance to watch NC State play this past season and was impressed with the Wolfpack.

"I watched NC State a lot. I thought they were good... they won a lot of games. I like how their big men run the floor and get to make plays."

However, the Wolfpack has some ground to make up in Kingsley's recruitment. While he maintains that he is wide open, a Big East school holds an early advantage.

"I don't have a top five of schools," he said. "Louisville would be my leader, but that is the only place I have taken an unofficial visit to so far. I'm more familiar with them right now so they would be my leader.

"I like the education there and the coaching staff is cool. I like everything about them right now."

Rated the No. 7 center in the 2013 class by Scout.com, the 6-foot-9, 225-pounder is considered the No. 52 overall prospect.
