Leslie thinks N.C. State can crack Top 5

C.J. Leslie is thinking big.

The Raleigh Word of God basketball forward said Monday afternoon at a press conference at the school that he believes N.C. State can be among the top five college basketball teams in the nation next year.

The 6-foot-8 Leslie committed to State last Wednesday, but answered questions about his decision on the same court where he earned national attention.

First Leslie laid out his reasons for picking the hometown Pack over Kentucky and Connecticut, his two other finalists.

First, he said, State is a great school,. Second, Sidney Lowe is a great coach. And third, it is great to be able to play close to home where his mother and father can see him play.

Leslie is part of a three-man recruiting class. He and point guards Ryan Harrow of Marietta (Ga.) Walton and Lorenzo Brown of Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military all are five-star recruits, the highest ranking given by most national recruiting services.

    Jackie, you must not follow BB recruiting that much. I doubt Top 5 but Top 20 is not out of the question. Harrow, Brown and Leslie are a nice class and wil make immediate impact.
