Earlier this week the Wolfpack also released the news that sophomore forward Thomas de Thaey was leaving the team to pursue professional opportunities in Belgium.
With three scholarships available, the Wolfpack is also heavily pursuing five-star power forward Julius Randle, and the staff will also continue to explore all options with the possibility of Lorenzo Brown and C.J. Leslie leaving early for professional basketball.
With three seniors on the 2013-2014 squad, NC State will have at least another three scholarships available for the 2014 recruiting class, but two have already been offered to accepted by Mocksville (NC) Davie County forward Cody Martin and Caleb Martin.
Here is an updated roster of the scholarship players following the departure of Thomas de Thaey.
|Jordan Vandenberg||C||R-Sr.||Aust. Institute of Sport (Melbourne, Aust.)||7-1/264|
|Vandenberg sat out the 2011-2012 season as a medical redshirt, and is currently a reserve.|
|C.J. Leslie||PF||Sr.||Word of God (Raleigh, N.C.)||6-9/200|
|Leslie is one of the ACC's top talents and this could be his last year in Raleigh.|
|Lorenzo Brown||PG||Sr.||Centennial (Roswell, Ga.)||6-5/186|
|Like Leslie, Brown is one of the league's best and some think he could declare for the draft at the end of the season.||Ralston Turner||G||R-Jr.||Muscle Shoales (Ala.)||6-5/209|
|Turner, a transfer from LSU, is sitting out this season due to NCAA rules.|
|Tyler Lewis||PG||Soph.||Oak Hill Academy (Lewisville, N.C.)||5-11/157|
|NC State's first commitment in the 2012 class, Lewis is currently the backup point guard.|

|Purvis is starting at shooting guard and playing major minutes.|
|T.J. Warren||F||Soph.||Brewster Academy (Durham, N.C.)||6-8/233|
|Warren has had a major impact and currently leads State in scoring.|
|Anthony Barber||PG||Fr.||Hampton HS (Hampton, Va.)||6-2/165|
|A top-15 prospect in the 2013 class, Barber is one of the elite point guards in the country.|
|BeeJay Anya||C||Fr.||DeMatha Catholic (Gaithersburg, MD)||6-9/275|
|Anya is expected to contribute right away with the departure of Richard Howell.|
|Kyle Washington||F||Fr.||Brewster Academy (Durham, N.C.)||6-9/215|
