6/7/05: Pack Pride Basketball Recruiting Board

After landing one of the top recruiting classes in 2005, the NC State Wolfpack are again hard at work on the recruiting trail. With four scholarships available, the Wolfpack coaching staff has plenty of options to pursue in the loaded '06 class.

The Pack Pride Recruiting Board is in no way connected with the NC State coaching staff. This board is for our readers to remain updated with the recruitment of players who have shown an interest in NC State. Players are listed according to their interest in NC State through various media outlets.

Remember, it is still very early in the recruiting process and the board will change throughout the summer as new players emerge and commitments are made.

  • Projected 2006-07 NC State Roster


    G Larry Davis

    Hometown: New York, NY

    Vitals: 6-3/175/14 PPG

    Schools of Interest: NC STATE VERBAL

    Davis Profile: Larry has already scheduled three official visits, as he's checking out NC State (6/3), Pittsburgh (6/10), and Villanova (6/16). He could be looking to decide soon and look for NC State to try and secure a verbal commitment while Davis is in Raleigh. He's an outstanding combo guard prospect that would really fit NC State's offensive system.UPDATE: 6/7 -- Larry verbaled to NC State after visiting the Wolfpack last weekend.

    G Marques Johnson

    Hometown: Fort Wayne, Indiana

    Vitals: 6-5/175/18 PPG

    Schools of Interest: NC State (Offer), Oklahoma, Georgetown, Arkansas, Purdue, Illinois, Notre Dame

    Johnson Profile: Marques is an intriguing prospect who has the ability to play either point guard or shooting guard on the next level. He has terrific size, a reliable jumper, and above-average ballhandling skills. NC State's definitely in the mix and their ability to offer instant playing time at point guard could be huge for the Wolfpack. UPDATE: 6/7 -- NC State now leads for Johnson after an unofficial visit during the Gibbons tournament. He could be taking a trip to Tennessee and announcing a decision in the near future.

    PG Willie Walker

    Hometown: Romeoville, Illinois

    Vitals: 5-11/179/---

    Schools of Interest: NC State (Offer), Wyoming, Miami, Ohio State, Illinois

    Walker Profile: Willie is an interesting prospect because a lot of high-major colleges are tracking his development this summer. He's been compared to Illinois star point guard Deron Williams, and he'll have a chance to shine at the Gibbons Tournament. NC State's definitely among his leaders as he doesn't hide the fact that he prefers to play in the ACC. UPDATE: 6/7 -- Walker played very well at the Gibbons Tournament. Will NC State step up their efforts?

    G Anthony Gurley

    Hometown: Boston, Mass.

    Vitals: 6-3/195/---

    Schools of Interest: NC State (Offer), Boston College, Wake Forest, Mass, Georgia, Memphis

    Gurley Profile: Anthony's had a very, very good spring and he's picked up several high-major offers along the way. He's a scoring combo guard who has a terrific mid-range game and deep jumper. Simply put, he can score the basketball. NC State, Wake Forest, and Boston College appear to be the early favorites. UPDATE: 6/7 -- Gurley could be off the radar now that Davis has committed. We'll be reaching him in the near future to find out if NC State's still recruiting him.

    SG JaJuan Jones

    Hometown: Douglasville, Georgia

    Vitals: 6-5/175/---

    Schools of Interest: NC State, Cincy, Georgia

    Jones Profile: Jones burst on the scene at the Kingswood Classic and is a bonafide high-major prospect. He has strong scoring tools and is a very good passer who can play the point or shooting guard positions. His recruitment has yet to really start, as more teams will watch him play this summer. NC State visited Jones during the evaluation period and he's certainly on the radar. UPDATE: 6/7 -- Information has been tough to find on Jones, who has slowed his recruitment considerably. He has a chance to improve his stock at the major shoe camps.

    G Greivis Vasquez

    Hometown: Rockville, Maryland

    Vitals: 6-5/170/---

    Schools of Interest: NC State (Offer), Boston College, Maryland, Gonzaga

    Vasquez Profile: Greivis is a high-energy prospect who is being molded into a point guard by Stu Vetter and Montrose Christian. A native of Venezuela, Vasquez already has offers from NC State, Maryland, Gonzaga, and Boston College. He's athletic, can handle, and can really shoot the basketball. As with most Montrose players, don't look for Greivis to make an early decision.UPDATE: 6/7 -- Vasquez is a player to watch, as he fits what NC State's looking for at the guard spot. Maryland is strong in his recruitment.


    F Dan Werner

    Hometown: Lincroft, New Jersey

    Vitals: 6-7/220/16 PPG

    Schools of Interest: NC STATE VERBAL

    Werner Profile: Dan committed to NC State in May after considering offers from West Virginia, Notre Dame, Georgetown, and Rutgers among others. He'll play the 3/4 positions for the Wolfpack and is very familiar with their offensive system as his high school, Christian Brothers Academy, runs the same system.
