According to the Charlotte Observer,
Jordan Collins is set to commit to N.C. State, citing potential playing
time. For State, of course, it gives them a trained big man, since you
can't go to DeMatha without being properly trained.
State's frontcourt is rapidly filling up - with Michael Bell at 6-9,
Marcus Melvin at 6-8, Damien Wilkins at small forward at 6-6, and incoming
freshmen Jordan at 6-10, 6-9 Josh Powell, and 6-7 Levi Watkins, that's a pretty
full rotation. Elton
Brown is also currently scheduled to visit Raleigh, and of course they have
pursued Marcus Campbell as well.
It's also worth mentioning that we think this is State's first DeMatha commitment since Lowe/Whittenburg. State used to have a bit of a DeMatha pipeline and at one point Morgan Wooten was seriously considered as head coach when Norm Sloan went back to Florida.
