One of the biggest gets of the basketball world belongs to N.C. State head coach Sidney Lowe.
University sources said Wednesday afternoon C.J. Leslie, the star forward from Raleigh's Word of God, will play next year for the Wolfpack.
Leslie chose State over offers from high-profile programs like Kentucky and UConn. He is a five-star prospect, ranked the No. 3 power forward in the country by Scout.com.
Leslie, 6-foot-8 and 210-pounds, is the highest-rated prospect to ever commit to N.C. State under Lowe.
He was expected to sign a letter of intent Friday or Monday, university sources said.
