While N.C. State was wrapping up its 94-76 win over UMass in Puerto Rico, BeeJay Anya was back in Hyattsville, Md. adding to Mark Gottfried's recruiting haul.

Anya, a 6-9, 275-pound power forward from DeMatha High School, committed to N.C. State on Friday night. He made the announcement at his high school. ESPN has Anya rated as the No. 32 prospect in the class of 2013.

Anya gives the Wolfpack three commitments from ESPN's top 70 in the high school senior class. He joins point guard Anthony Barber (No. 12) and forward Kyle Washington (No. 70).

N.C. State added three top 50 players from the class of 2012 and has two commitments from a pair of top 40 players in the class of 2014.

The Wolfpack is one of the finalists for forward Julius Randle, the fourth-rated player in the class of '13. Randle's not expected to make his decision until March.
