NC State signees Rodney Purvis, Tyler Lewis, and T.J. Warren were named McDonald's All-Americans today by the selection committee at 5:00 pm on ESPNU.

Rodney Purvis, a 6-foot-4 combo guard at Raleigh (NC) Upper Room Christian Academy, is rated the No. 17 recruit in the 2012 class by Scout.com. He picked the Wolfpack over Duke, Missouri, and UCONN among others.

T.J. Warren, a 6-foot-8 forward at Brewster (NH) Academy, is ranked No. 25 in Scout's latest rankings. He chose State over North Carolina, Florida, and Georgetown among others.

The Pack's other selection, Mouth of Wilson (VA) Oak Hill point guard Tyler Lewis, is rated No. 45 in the class by Scout.com. Lewis was the Wolfpack's first verbal in the 2012 class.

Both Purvis and Warren are regarded as five-star prospects by Scout.com, and Lewis is listed as a four-star recruit.

This is the first time NC State has had three signees participate in the same McDonald's All-American Game. The previous high for the Wolfpack was two in 1979 (Sidney Lowe and Derek Whittenburg) and 1987 (Chris Corchiani and Rodney Monroe).

The last McDonald's All-American to sign with NC State was C.J. Leslie in 2010.

All three signees will be playing together on the East squad.

NC State 2012 target Amile Jefferson also made the team. The 6-foot-9 forward is believed to be leaning to Duke and NC State right now and is a Top 25 recruit.

Jefferson will be playing on the East team as well.

This year's game will be held at the United Center in Chicago (Ill.) on March 28th.
