N.C. State added a very intriguing piece to its Class of 2016 on Monday as Turkish star forward Omer Yurtseven has signed with the Wolfpack, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com.

Scout.com’s Evan Daniels has said that Yurtseven would have been the equivalent of a top-10 prospect in the Class of 2016, and in a loaded class like this, that is really saying something.

The 7-foot-0 240-pound center is skilled in pick-and-roll settings and could be a potentially devastating duo along with freshman point guard Dennis Smith. The Wolfpack now have two legitimate five-star talents in this freshman class and will be an intriguing team to watch in the ACC this season.

Yurtseven has played with the Turkish club Fenerbahce the last few years as he’s been a known prospect in Europe since he was a teenager.
