Immanuel Bates, one of the best shot-blockers in the high school ranks, announced that he has committed to N.C. State at a press conference on Friday afternoon.

Bates is a 6-foot-9, 200 pound center that is regarded as one of the best shot-blockers in the high school ranks and a borderline top 100 prospect.

He is the first commitment for N.C. State head coach Kevin Keatts in the Class of 2018, picking the Wolfpack over Georgetown, South Carolina and Georgia Tech.
