"There are some jobs where it's hard to go out of your area, but I don't think this is one of them," Gottfried said. "You can recruit anybody." Anya hails from Gaithersburg, Md., which is about five hours away, and Barber is about three and a half hours away in Hampton. "You look at BeeJay and Cat, and those guys are obviously not far away," Gottfried said. "Those guys are from bordering states. Kyle was different, though. We feel good about them and we just need to keep recruiting." NC State has at least three scholarships available in the class of 2013, but obviously needs to make sure there is also room for the Martin twins in 2014. Landing some potential post players tops the list of spring signees. "The next class in 2014 will be big, and this spring will be big in finding the right additions to this group," Gottfried said.'s No. 2-ranked senior Julius Randle confirmed with the recruiting network that he'd be visiting NC State the weekend of Jan. 25-27. Randle, who will miss three months after suffering a fractured right foot Nov. 24 at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest in Duncanville, Texas, is easily the Wolfpack's top target for the spring. The 6-9, 240-pounder from Plano (Texas) Prestonwood Christian has three official visits available and is starting to finalize his plans. "I have Texas and Kansas next month, but I'm not sure what the dates are. I have NC State on the 25th of January," Randle said. "I want to see playing style, if it's a coach that I can trust, and if it's a coach that can get me ready for the next level. Somewhere where I think I can win is one of the biggest things for me." ESPN GameDay will be in town Jan.  26 to coincide with the North Carolina at NC State contest. The packed PNC Arena crowd will get a chance to show off for Randle, who made trips throughout the fall. He officially visited Kentucky Sept.  15 and Florida Oct. 6, and worked in unofficial visits to nearby Texas and Oklahoma. Randle's ability to work inside and outside fits well in NC State's UCLA offense. "That's how they see me playing, and that's the same with every coach I talk to that's on my list right now," Randle said. "I ask them, what do I need if I go there? What do I need to get ready? That's the main thing, to have my perimeter game right and my post-up game." ■ For regular reports on NC State basketballball recruiting plus videos of Wolfpack commitments and targets visit 68  ■  the wolfpacker 64,66-68.BKB Recruiting.indd 68 12/11/12 2:31 PM
