#AskCoachB: Is NC State on the rise?

Mark Gottfried certainly has brought a new level of excitement to Raleigh. The recruiting efforts by the Wolfpack have been strong since Gottfried took over at State as they have had nationally ranked classes.

With only one senior on the roster in 7-foot-1 center Jordan Vandenberg and another impressive class coming in next year, it could get real exciting, especially if super-scoring sophomore forward T.J. Warren stays. Don't forget -- Alabama transfer Trevor Lacey is sitting out and will be eligible next year, and the staff is high on him.

More help is on the way with a highly rated group coming in. NC State's 2014 class stands at No. 21 in our class rankings. The player I look for to be a big part of next year's success is power forward Abdul-Malik Abu. He will come in and make a difference in the paint because of his live body, skill and mature approach to the game.

This is a growing year for the Pack. Yes, I do believe next year could be a special year in Raleigh.
