4-star Combo Guard Lorenzo Brown commits over weekend

After a tumultuous year for Sidney Lowe, the Wolfpack basketball coach got some good news this weekend with the commitment of 4-star combo guard Lorenzo Brown from Alpharetta, GA.

All the stories on PackPride.com and ncstate.rivals.com are premium info, so you'll have to subscribe to their sites (if you haven't already) to learn more about him. But all you need to know is that this is a huge get for Lowe after such a dissappointing season.

Here's some basic info on Brown:
- 6'-4", 175 pounds
- #8 SG in country (by both Scout and Rivals), #37 player overall by Rivals
- Offer list included Texas, Florida and Memphis, among others. VERY solid.

He could be a one-and-done player with the Pack, but his departure timetable will likely depend upon how successful State is his freshman year in '09-'10. He would really have to light it up as a freshman to jump after one year.

From all accounts he sounds like a grounded individual, as well, that's not afraid to put in the work in the gym to be successful.

Landing Brown may have other recruiting implications, as well. Big time prospets like to follow other big time prospects to programs; it makes sense, so long as you're not looking to share time with the other name. So landing Brown may improve our chances with two other targets on the '09 board--Derrick Favors and Ryan Kelly, two five-star forwards who--along with Brown--could make for one of the best recruiting classes in the Pack's recent history.

Nevertheless, Brown is a big get, and a great addition to the '09 class.
