Statesboro (Ga.) High boys basketball coach Lee Hill said shooting guard Jaqawn Raymond is fully aware of the possibility of a coaching change at N.C. State, but is committed to the school.
"He loves the school," Hill said Tuesday morning. "He really likes it there. This is a chance to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference, which I think has the best college basketball in the country.
"Raymond very much wants to play for Sidney Lowe. It is his program that recruited him. But Raymond is confident that N.C. State is always going to have a good program."
Raymond was the only senior on a 19-10 Statesboro team. He averaged 21 points.
"He carried our program for the last two years," Hill said. "He'd have to break the press and then carry us offensively."
He had offers from Jacksonville, Furman, Mercer and College of Charleston and Clemson had invited him for an unofficial visit.
