…towards staying in the class of 2016.

The super versatile 7-foot Maker is generally considered one of the top five prospects in either the 2015 or 2016 class.

One of the biggest storylines in recruiting right now is the question regarding whether Maker will reclassify from the class of 2016 into 15. In terms of talent, Maker would immediately slot into the top five in the rising senior class, and perhaps even higher. He is also looking into whether he could make the cut academically.

While he is certainly capable of reclassifying, it might not happen.

“It’s still up in the air,” Maker told CBSSports.com and one other reporter on Friday evening. “But it’s leaning toward staying [in 2016] a little bit.”

As one of the most sought-after prospects in the country, Maker has every powerhouse in the country on his trail. He visited Kansas, Missouri and Duke in June.

Other schools involved include Kentucky, Indiana, Memphis, Texas, North Carolina State and Arizona, while Maker also plans to see UCLA while at Adidas Nations in August.

The 2015 and 2016 recruiting classes loom large for NC State, whose probability of landing top talent should be enhanced by the large number of exceptional players who are North Carolina natives.

    And here’s hoping that UNC and/or Duke don’t swoop in and steal him at the last minute.

    Based on who is hot on his trail I don’t see him leaning our way. You never know I guess but I would say we don’t have the best odds of landing him.
