    Maverick Rowan is off the board to N.C. State.

    4_2915507The 6-foot-7, 210-pound small forward from E1T1 will reclass to 2015 from 2016 and be eligible for the 2015-16 season. He also considered Louisville, St. John’s and West Virginia.

    “I have a great relationship with the coaches, [Mark] Gottfried and [Orlando] Early,” he told SNY.tv. “They have been loyal and stayed with me through everything  this year. Gottfried does a great job for his wings and I feel I can go in and be the same type of player T.J. Warren and Trevor Lacey were.”

    He recently told SNY.tv playing time would be a major factor in his decision.

    “I need to play right away,” Rowan said at the Nike Global Challenge. “Like I said before, I’m not gonna sit on the bench until my senior year. That’s the way it is.”

    Rowan’s father Ron played with Chris Mullin at St. John’s, leaving many to think he would land there. The Johnnies remain in the mix for Our Savior New American forward Kassoum Yakwe, who may also reclass to 2015.

    Rowan said he considered St. John’s “a lot,” but the “best fit was N.C. State.”
