NC State added another big-time prospect to its 2013 recruiting class today when four-star center BeeJay Anya committed to the Wolfpack during a press conference at Hyattsville (MD) DeMatha Catholic High School.

The 6-foot-9, 255-pounder held offers from NC State, Indiana, UCLA, Pittsburgh, and Ohio State among others, and he is rated the No. 5 center in the class and the No. 45 player overall.

What type of a player has State landed in Anya?

"The thing about BeeJay is he's just massive," said Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Evan Daniels. "He has this big, strong body with a huge wingspan and he uses it to impact the game on the defensive end. He really locks in on his area from a rebounding perspective and will definitely contest shots. "

Now, moving forward he will need to develop his offensive game. In high school he has overpowered defenders, but I think he'll need to develop some post moves and counter moves. He's one of the top centers in the country and will definitely help State from a rebounding standpoint in the paint."

He joins a Wolfpack class that includes five-star point guard Anthony Barber and four-star forward Kyle Washington and ranks among the top 10 nationally.

Pack Pride will have more from Anya on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
