Chatham (VA) Hargrave Military standout Deshawn Painter has reached a decision and the talented forward will play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

"I just committed to NC State," said Painter. "I had a good feel for them. Sidney Lowe was big for me and I had a great vibe with the players. I just feel it was a great fit all the way around. It felt like home."

After taking visits to NC State, Virginia Tech, and Maryland, Painter narrowed it down to the Wolfpack and Terps before picking NC State.

Checking in at 6-foot-9 and 220 pounds, Painter has a chance to impact as a true freshman. He is currently rated the No. 20 power forward in the country and the No. 69 player overall in the 2009 class by Scout.com.

He will be NC State's sixth signee in the 2009 class, joining guards Lorenzo Brown and Scott Wood, forwards Richard Howell and Josh Davis, and center Jordan Vandenberg.

Pack Pride will have more on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
