NC State hosted four-star combo forward Reggie Cameron over the weekend for an unofficial visit. What did Cameron think of the trip?

"It went really good," said Cameron. "I had a great time. I was able to see a lot of things while I was at NC State.

"I thought their facilities were real nice. Coach Moxley took me around, and I got to see the big practice center and their locker rooms there. Then we went over to the PNC Arena and toured that too. It was all nice to me."

Cameron was able to watch the Pack work out as they prepared for their upcoming trip to Spain. For him, that was the highlight of the visit.

"Probably the best part was seeing the team work out and practice," he said. "Just being able to see them work out up close... I got to see how coach Gottfried coaches.

"He runs a great practice. He's hands-on out there and really has a command of his team."

According to Cameron, NC State has a chance to be really good this year.

"Oh, they are going to be strong," he said. "Seeing them practice. They have a lot of talent. Guys like C.J. Leslie, he's going to be a first-round draft pick. I know he stood out to me for sure."

NC State could potentially have six or seven scholarships available to use on the 2013 class, and Cameron is a priority. With the Wolfpack set to lose Scott Wood and Richard Howell, and Leslie potentially declaring for the draft, the staff has informed Cameron that freshmen will be able to play right away.

"The coaches are just saying that they have Scott Wood who is a senior so if I went to NC State there would be a chance to play as a freshman," Cameron said. "They also are losing C.J. Leslie and Lorenzo [Brown] might not be there either so I think this class could all have a chance to play right away."

At 6-foot-8 and 220 pounds, Cameron is considered to be one of the top shooters in the country. He can also hit the glass, but Cameron is known for his ability to stretch the floor and knock down 3-pointers from all over the court.

Most schools are recruiting Cameron, who attends Hudson Catholic in Jersey City, New Jersey, as a combo forward. He claims offers from NC State, Oklahoma State, UCONN, Iowa State, Indiana, Villanova, Seton Hall, USC, West Virginia, Florida, Miami, Cincinnati, Xavier, DePaul, Rutgers, Providence, and Northwestern.

As of now, he remains wide open.

"I don't have any other visits lined up right now, but we're still waiting to name a top list," said Cameron. "I'd like to get it all done before my season starts... it will definitely be be before that. I'll probably make my decision in October or November."

Cameron is rated a four-star recruit and the No. 27 power forward in the country by Scout.com.
