NC State currently has ten scholarships filled for the 2012-2013 season following the announcement that Ralston Turner will be transferring in from LSU. Here is a closer look at the Wolfpack's projected roster and depth chart.

NC State has signed letters of intent from a trio of McDonald's All-Americans: Raleigh (NC) Upper Room combo guard Rodney Purvis, Brewster Academy (NH) forward T.J. Warren, and Oak Hill (VA) point guard Tyler Lewis.

With two seniors on the 2012-2013 squad, NC State will have at least another two scholarships available for the 2013 recruiting class.

2012-2013 Projected NC State Scholarship Roster

Here is an updated roster of the scholarship players following the Ralston Turner announcement.

Scott Wood F Sr. Marion (Marion, Ind.) 6-6/175
Wood has played small forward his entire career but could play some shooting guard if needed.
Richard Howell F Sr. Wheeler (Marietta, Ga.) 6-8/250
Howell started for NC State as a junior, logging major minutes.
Jordan Vandenberg C R-Jr. Aust. Institute of Sport (Melbourne, Aust.) 7-1/258
Vandenberg sat out the 2011-2012 season as a medical redshirt.
C.J. Leslie PF Jr. Word of God (Raleigh, N.C.) 6-8/209
Leslie announced a couple of weeks ago that he will be back for his junior season, and he could be the ACC's top returning player.
Lorenzo Brown PG Jr. Centennial (Roswell, Ga.) 6-5/186
Brown will be back to lead the team from the point guard position.
Ralston Turner SG/SF Jr. LSU (Muscle Shoals, Ala.) 6-6/205
Due to NCAA rules, Turner must sit out the 2012-2013 season but will be on scholarship and have two years of eligibility remaining.
Thomas de Thaey F Soph. Canarias Basketball Academy (Dendermonde, Belgium) 6-8/239
De Thaey will add depth at both frontcourt positions.
Tyler Lewis PG Fr. Oak Hill Academy (Lewisville, N.C.) 5-11/165
NC State's first commitment in the 2012 class, Lewis should see minutes right away at point guard for the Wolfpack.
Rodney Purvis G Fr. Upper Room Christian Acad. (Raleigh, N.C.) 6-4/185
Like Lewis, Purvis will be counted on to play as a true freshman. He is expected to start at shooting guard and play major minutes.
T.J. Warren F Fr. Brewster Academy (Durham, N.C.) 6-8/230
Warren has a chance to play right away because of his ability to score the basketball. He's one of the top scorers in the 2012 recruiting class.
