North Carolina State forward T.J. Warren will return for his sophomore season, he confirmed to WRAL News Wednesday.
“I will be back,” Warren said. “I love NC State! It’s just something about this place.”
The 6-foot-8 Durham native appeared in all 35 games for the Wolfpack last season, starting in 14. He averaged 12.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game as a freshman while seeing better than 27 minutes per contest. He was also second on the team with 42 steals.
Warren also took to twitter on Wednesday afternoon saying "Excited for the future #packnation".
Warren will be just one of three players on the Wolfpack roster next year to have started a game in 2012-13 and the only player to have started more than two. Guard Tyler Lewis started two games last year and center Jordan Vandenberg started once.
Since NC State’s season ended in their tournament opener to Temple, the Pack have lost Richard Howell and Scott Wood to graduation, Lorenzo Brown and Calvin Leslie to the NBA Draft and Rodney Purvis to a transfer.
