Kyle Washington, a 6'9" power forward from Brewster Academy, has verbally committed to the N.C. State Wolfpack according to NY2LASports. Washington made his decision after taking an official visit to N.C. State this weekend.
Washington is rated a 4-star prospect and the 96th best player in the 2013 class by Rivals.com.
ESPN.com says of the talented power forward, "Washington is an extra long and athletic lefty power forward that is oozing with potential. He runs the floor effortlessly. Can finish drop off passes created by dribble penetration on the break and in the half court with length not strength."
Last year, Washington averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds a game at Hotchkiss School in Connecticut. He recently transferred to Brewster Academy to play his senior season.
Brewster Academy's head coach, Jason Smith, told me of Washington, "Kyle is an excellent forward who can be successful at any program in the nation. He's a tremendous young man who would be a great asset to any college community and program."
Washington chose N.C. State over Louisville, Ohio State, Washington, Marquette and several other Division I schools.
Washington joins talented point guard Anthony Barber in the Wolfpack's 2013 class. Barber is a 5-star recruit who is ranked the third-best point guard in the 2013 class by Scout.com.
N.C. State head coach Matt Gottfried has proven he is a great recruiter. Last year he put together a very talented class, ranked the fifth-best recruiting classes in the country according to Scout.com.
With the addition of Barber and Washington, N.C. State maybe putting together an even more talented class then last year.
