N.C.State: Leslie Staying, Harrow Going

C.J. Leslie
Last Sunday at 11:59 p.m., was the deadline for early entry into the NBA Draft, and one player who elected not to enter was N.C. State freshman forward C.J. Leslie.

The 2010 McDonald’s All-American from Holly Springs, N.C., and product of Word of God Academy in Raleigh, opted not to file the paperwork to go pro early.

Leslie averaged 11.0 points per game as a rookie, second-highest behind departing forward Tracy Smith. Leslie also averaged a team-high 7.2 rebounds per contest.

That said, freshmen point guard Ryan Harrow is leaving saying  he's looking for the "best fit" for his college basketball career.

The point guard didn't say where that would be but it won't be in Raleigh.

The undersized (6-foot, 160 pounds) guard averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 assists in 29 games as a freshman. He had a strong bond with former coach Sidney Lowe, who resigned after a disappointing 15-16 record in 2010-11. Mark Gottfried was hired to replace Lowe on April 5.
