Josip Mikulic, a 6-10 forward from Florida, committed to NC State back in February despite never having visited campus, and given both that and the timing of his commitment, it's no real surprise that he's going to look elsewhere. It was a bit strange that he and Jaqawn Raymond committed late in the year as Sidney Lowe's tenure was very clearly going down in flames.
Raymond inked with NC State this morning:
Lee Hill, Raymond's coach at Statesboro High, confirmed the signing. Raymond had committed to former N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe, but Hill said Raymond felt comfortable with the new staff after they visited him.
Raymond, who's 6-foot-4, averaged 21.3 points per game and shot 79 percent from the free throw line last season. He also carries a 3.5 grade-point average, Hill said.
