Charlotte scored an in-state prospect on Tuesday. Shawn Lester pledged to the 49ers.

After taking a visit to Charlotte last weekend, it didn't take Shawn Lester long to realize that was the place for him.

Tuesday afternoon the 6-foot-3, 165-pound guard out of Mooresville (N.C.) Senior, committed to Alan Major and Charlotte.

"They made me priority from day one and I think it's a good fit for me," Lester told Scout.com.

Lester, who also considered Clemson and South Carolina, said his visit last weekend sealed up his college choice.

"I just came back last weekend," he said. "It was good. They showed me around campus and I played with the team a little bit."

Lester played on the summer circuit with the CP3 All-stars. During his junior season he averaged 18 points, five assists and five steals.

Lester becomes Charlotte's first commitment in the 2012 class.
