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.
