The Recruiting Scene: Burgess officially visited Ole Miss, Kansas State, Oklahoma State and NC State before making his decision to run with the Pack on December 18. In the end, Burgess' decision came down to the three "state" schools. Kansas State was the first school to offer and that played a significant factor in his recruiting.
However, the Pack had location on their side and that proved pivotal in State's favor. With his parents living in South Carolina, only the Wolfpack gave Burgess the ability to play in front of his parents on a routine basis. He will arrive at NC State this summer and will have three years to play two.
