Turkish star Omer Yurtseven, a 7-footer projected as the No. 14 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by DraftExpress.com, has signed a National Letter of Intent with N.C. State.
"They have had a Turkish player (Egin Atsur) before and I heard that it was all good for him," Yurtseven told Evan Daniels of Scout, who first reported the news. "They have a pretty good team. They are on the edge and above average and they need another guy to take them up. They needed another guy."
"It's not just about basketball," he added. "I'm interested in math and stuff and they have a pretty good computer science program."
