Gottfather still sitting on a Top 5 recruiting haul

Even though NC State lost Ricardo Gathers to Baylor this week, the Wolfpack’s (current) three-man recruiting class is still strong enough to hold at #5 in the country in the most recently updated rankings by Evan Daniels.

State clearly needs to find some help in the post and continues to recruit Amile Jefferson and Boris Bojanovsky.

For more on recent NC State Basketball recruiting developments I am going to link here to page #20 of a (current) 22-page discussion on our message forums.

    1 more recruit of any caliber and we are back to #2.

    Lot of ACC on that list.

    Two notable exceptions from the list – Duke and ASU. You would think Herb would need to be in the top 10.

    Also don’t see Mizzouri on the radar.

    It’s good to see Virginia, Florida State, Wake, and Georgia Tech keeping up, and it is of course very exciting to see the Pack leading the way for the ACC. No Duke is sort of a shocker. Perhaps this is the beginning of a new pecking order and a return to the competition we’ve become accustomed to in the A double C.

    Don’t forget that Duke is redshirting 2 freshman big men this year–Marshall Plumlee, and I can’t remember the other guy, but he is reportedly better than Plumlee. That definitely adds to this year’s recruiting class, even though these guys do not officially count for this class.

    From reading crap on the internet, I know it means nothing, it looks like Amile is leaning towards Duke and State as his primary choices. If so our upcoming game with Duke may hold some additional weight. If we get smoked I think he will lean towards Duke but if we take Duke to the woodshed, yes it can happen, I think Gott can use that as leverage to show we are an up-and-comer in the ACC.

    Anyone agree?

    I agree NAV…one I think Duke is vulnerable at times. If we play our game, stay focused and agressive, we can take that game. I think showing any recruit that you are competing with the local non-rivals according to some, it only helps Gotts platform

    9 out of the top 25 are current or future ACC schools and the sure-to-be-great Duke still isn’t represented.

    I’m a little less interested in how we round out the 2012 class as how we can find equally high ranking C/PF recruits for the 2013 class. With our wealth of upperclassman bigs, it’ll be tough to sell them on playing time but we need either/both Kennedy Meeks or BeeJay Anya. That’d be like our own version of the Zeller/Henson 9 foot frontcourt duo. Except ours would be 6’8″ and weigh a combined 500 pounds.

    Piggybacking on logarithm, excluding Syracuse and Pittsburgh, only two of the top 25 are Big East schools? And one of them is a Providence team barely above .500 this year? Even the Pac 12 has three schools on the board.
