Vine: N.C. State's Mark Gottfried Took A Helicopter To Recruit 5-Stars Dennis Smith Jr. And Bam Adebayo

N.C. State basketball's 2016 class is currently empty, but head coach Mark Gottfried is breaking out all the stops to change that. Gottfried is flying a helicopter to go recruit two in-state five star talents: point guard Dennis Smith Jr. and power forward Edrice "Bam" Adebayo.

Both recruits are being recruited by in-state rivals North Carolina and wake Forest. Smith also has offers from Duke and Kentucky, while Louisville is after Adebayo. Ultimately, Gottfried has to sell his program over a number of legitimate powerhouses, but a little flash probably can't hurt.
