T.J. Warren is known for being a prolific scorer and is currently being recruited by several top college programs, including NC State, Florida, North Carolina and Georgetown. In this conversation with T.J., we get his thoughts on each of the four schools on his list, as well as what he thinks he will need to do to succeed at the next level.
NC State head coach Sidney Lowe has proven that he is an adept recruiter, pulling in high profile talent to play in the top notch ACC.
One of Lowe’s recruits this year is Tyler Harris, a versatile wing player with great size (SF, 6’8″, 2011) who had several high major offers before committing to play with the WolfPack. Even at 6’8″, Tyler is a true wing who is adept with the ball, can shoot and has all of the tools to transition to the next level.
Today we offer our 7 Questions with the future ACC player and get his thoughts after commitment and on what he’s working on in his game.
1. What was the biggest factor in your decision to commit to NC State?
The biggest factor on my commit to NC State was the style of play. Being able to fit into NC State style of play I know I could add something to the team to make them better.
2. What do you feel is the strongest part of your game right now?
The strongest part of my game is my shooting. But I have been working on other parts of my game to become more of an all around player. I have been playing the 4 and 5 a lot this year to improve my post game.
3. What part of your game are you working on?
I have been mostly just been getting stronger with my trainer Britton Kelly, working on my inside game and my handle. It has been improving a lot and I will continue to work on it.
4. You’re headed into some serious basketball country,
between NC State, UNC and Duke all within a few miles of each other.
Do you expect to play in Jerry Stackhouse’s summer pro-am (in the area) next summer?
Yes, I think it would be great if I played in it next year. It would be a great opportunity.
5. Are the NC State coaches giving you feedback on your game, and if so,
what are they telling you they want to see?
The coaches tell me that they want me to play the 3 and 4. I am not yet done growing I should be about 6’10 so knowing that the coaches wanted me to play these positions I knew I need to work on my inside game since I can already play the 3.
6. Can you name a current or past player or a coach (at any level)
that you may admire and why you admire them?
Tayshaun Prince, because we both have a lot of similarities in our game.
7. If you could tell people one thing about you that you wish they knew,
what would it be?
I can be a clown a lot. I just like to have fun when I’m with my friends.
