Parker, Cothron Talk NC State

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Were it at all feasible, N.C. State head coach Sidney Lowe might want to consider adding Ryan Harrow to his coaching staff.

Were it at all feasible, N.C. State head coach Sidney Lowe might want to consider adding Ryan Harrow to his coaching staff.

Ever since Harrow committed to the Wolfpack, he has been hard at work trying to persuade other top players to join him.

The 6-foot floor general was back at it again over the weekend at the Pangos All-American Camp where Harrow steadily lobbied State targets Mychal Parker and Luke Cothron to commit to the Wolfpack.

"(He talks to me about going to State) all the time," says Parker, a 6-feet-7 small forward. "Every day he tells me, you need to come to State with me.

"I'm like, we'll see. We'll see."

The camp wrapped up Sunday with Harrow, Parker and Cothron all earning a spot in the Cream of the Crop Top 20 game.

As of Saturday night, Parker maintained that N.C. State hadn't offered him a scholarship yet.

When asked if he would take it if the school did give him one, he said he would "wait," before adding quickly, "But who knows what the outcome might be."

"They've been on my list, the top actually," Parker said. "I wanted to play at N.C. State when they were recruiting me.

"Somehow they stopped, but right now they're back up top."

Cothron didn't rule out the possibility of going to State with Harrow and Parker because all three are very good friends.

But he only plans on visiting three or four schools and noted that his first visit will be to Kansas this summer.

Cothron, who lives about an hour from N.C. State, said he has a very good relationship with Lowe and that the Wolfpack definitely have a chance.

"I like Sidney Lowe personally," Cothron said. "We've got a good relationship.

"I like his personality. He's a good coach... he let's players play."

At the Pangos camp, campers received individual instruction through drills, played full-court games and participated in different roundtables to give them an insight on what college coaches and scouting services are looking for in a player.

"So far it's been good," Parker said of the event. "I really like it, there's a lot of talent out here.

"I like the speeches. They're really intelligent. If you listen to them and do what they say to do you'll see progress in your game."
