Why NC State? "I just loved it up there. I loved the facilities and I loved the coaching staff especially. I just felt at home when I went up there to the camp I fell in love with it. I pretty much knew I was going to go there then. I didn't want to go out of state or anything because I wanted my family to be able to see me play. It was between them, ECU, Carolina and Charlotte."
Picked NC State Over: North Carolina, East Carolina, James Madison, and Charlotte
Scouting Report: "He has pretty good size and he has good feet. I think he'll understand the game a little bit better at the next level for having played [a lot of different positions] and it will play dividends for him in the long run." - West Stanly head coach James Johnson
