A few NC State targets for the class of 2010 are on Scout.com's updated list of top 75 prospects, which was released today. Wolfpack commitment Ryan Harrow enters the rankings for the first time, as the Marietta (GA) Walton point guard is ranked No. 50.
Harrow previously had been regarded as a three-star recruit, but is now a four-star prospect and the No. 10 point guard in his class.
As a junior, Harrow had a big-time season for Walton. The 6-foot point guard was one of only two juniors on the AP Class AAAAA first-team all-state team, and he was joined on the team by NC State signees Lorenzo Brown and Richard Howell.
He averaged 28 points per game to help lead Walton to a school-record 19 wins and a solid showing in the state playoffs.
He impressed Scout.com's Dave Telep and Evan Daniels over the past couple of weeks after suiting up with the Atlantic Celtics and OBC on the AAU circuit.
Harrow plans on playing the rest of the summer with the J. Smoove Celtics, and is expected to play at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions.
Leslie, a power forward from Raleigh (NC) Word of God, is now ranked the top prospect in the state. He had been committed to NC State but has since opened back up his recruitment and is hearing from a host of college programs.
Cothron, a power forward who plays for Flora MacDonald Academy in Red Springs (NC), is originally from Alabama. He suits up for Southeast Elite and Boo Williams on the AAU circuit and NC State appears to be in great shape as head coach Sidney Lowe has made Cothron a priority.
"I really like coach Lowe," he recently told Pack Pride. "We've developed a bond and I could see myself playing for him. He lets his players go out and make plays, and I like that."
New Alabama head coach Anthony Grant has made a push with Cothron, hoping to ink the 'Bama native.
Parker, who played this past season at The Miller School (VA) recently claimed an offer from the Wolfpack. The talented wing played with Ryan Harrow at a couple of events and they have formed a connection.
Barton is a new Wolfpack target but remains wide open. NC State assistant coach Larry Harris is recruiting the Baltimore standout. He's regarded as the top shooting guard prospect in the country.
Pack Pride will have an updated recruiting board in the near future so stay tuned!
