Pack Pride has learned that forward C.J. Leslie will be returning to NC State for his junior season.

NC State forward C.J. Leslie has informed Pack Pride that he will be returning to State for his junior season.

"I'm staying at State, that's the decision I've made," said Leslie. "I just felt like this was the best decision for me. The program is moving in the right direction, and I will finish it out and I'm excited about where we are heading at NC State.

"I'm looking forward to the upcoming season. We have some high expectations, and I'm excited about being a leader and help the team the best that I can. I can't wait."

Leslie, a 6-foot-8, 209-pound forward from Holly Springs, North Carolina, averaged 14.6 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks this season for the Wolfpack. Following the season he was a second-team All-ACC pick, and Leslie was instrumental in NC State's late-season success.

Over his last 11 games, Leslie averaged 18.3 points and 9.1 rebounds while shooting a blistering 58% from the field.

Pack Pride will have more on Leslie's decision in the near future so stay tuned!
