Athens Drive's Davis picks Pack

It didn’t take long for N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe to fill one of the empty roster spots created by the departures of Brandon Costner and Trevor Ferguson.

Josh Davis, a 6-foot-6, 210-pound forward, committed to N.C. State during a campus visit Monday according to Robert Clemons, who coaches Davis at Raleigh’s Athens Drive High.

Davis averaged 25.7 points and 12 rebounds per game this season as a senior. He had been considering UNC Wilmington and had scholarship offers from Gardner-Webb and High Point.
Seton Hall’s staff also wanted Davis to make a campus visit, Clemons said.

“He’s always wanted to go (to N.C. State),” Clemons said. “He always talked about N.C. State. That was his school. He worked hard enough, and was able to get an offer.”

Clemons said Davis can score on the block as a power forward and is skilled enough to play small forward. – Ken Tysiac

I don't know how good he is or will be, but this is welcome news. The last 2 NCSU bball recruiting strories I've read where Derick Favors and Demarcus Cousins committing to Georgia Tech and Memphis, respectively.

YAWN. Another story about the most overranked conference in the country. I believe all the 1st round exits proved just how overranked the ACC is.

The ACC laid an egg this year in the tourney, with the exception of UNC and Duke so far, but that doesn't mean there still aren't a ton of fans of ACC schools. What do you expect them to cover, Big Ten basketball?
