Amile Jefferson Commits To Duke

New, 25 comments

During a press conference at his high school, five-star forward prospect Amile Jefferson announced his intention to play for Coach K at Duke. His final decision reportedly came down to NC State and the Blue Devils.

So with that, NC State's 2012-13 roster situation is set. Barring some total surprise anyway. Jefferson's addition would have meant a lot to the team's frontcourt depth now and especially in 2013-14, but alas. Here's hoping that Warren and MegaHorse make up some combination of a useful player next year.

Lorenzo Brown / Tyler Lewis
Rodney Purvis
Scott Wood / T.J. Warren (?) / MegaHorse (?)
Calvin Leslie / T.J. Warren / MegaHorse
Richard Howell / Jordan Vandenberg

Addressing the forward position with the 2013 class becomes all the more crucial now. Assuming Leslie goes pro, and based only on who is currently on the roster, we're looking at a frontcourt rotation of Warren, MegaHorse, and Vandenberg. I suppose all eyes turn to you now, Julius Randle.
