McCauley will suit up for the Pittsburgh JOTS, the team he's played AAU with the past three seasons, and can play because he is a young high school senior and eligible to participate in the 17-under division.
"I think it's a big opportunity for me," McCauley said. "I talked with coach Stright of the JOTS and he asked if I wanted to play, and after checking with the NC State coaches I found out I'd be able to do it.
"I'm happy about it. Playing in front of the Wolfpack fans was a big reason I'm doing it and hopefully I can play well this weekend."
The JOTS will likely play Friday night on NC State's campus, but the official schedule won't be public until later this week.
The Pittsburgh JOTS is one of the premier AAU teams on the circuit, as past JOTS stars include: Denver Nugget Kenyon Martin, Seattle Supersonic Danny Fortson, and current NC State assistant coach Archie Miller.
McCauley, a consensus top-100 recruit for the Wolfpack, will play the power forward and center positions this weekend and once he arrives at NC State on July 4th.
He capped a terrific senior season for Yough High School by being named Post-Gazette Player of the Year and all-state after averaging 28.8 points and 16.5 rebounds.
McCauley scored a school-record 2,283 career points and helped Yough reach the WPIAL Class AAA finals and the second round of the PIAA playoffs. He increased his production to 34 points per game in the playoffs, leading Yough in its deepest postseason run ever.
McCauley inked with NC State in November over offers from programs such as Cincinnati, Xavier, Virginia, and West Virginia.
