N.C. State outlasted Duke and North Carolina in the pursuit of top recruit Julius Randle but the Wolfpack didn't make it to the finish line.
Randle, a 6-9 forward from Dallas and the No. 3 prospect in the class of 2013, has eliminated N.C. State from his final list, according to ESPN's Dave Telep.
Kentucky, Florida, Kansas and Texas made Randle's final four, according to Telep. Randle will announce his decision on ESPNU on March 20.
