2016 3-star Safety Traveon Redd went to Twitter today to report that he has received an offer from NC State.

Redd also holds offers from West Virginia, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Old Dominion, Maryland, Indiana, Illinois, Cincinnati, and others.

The defensive back has visited Wake Forest twice in the recent past, and is visiting Vanderbilt for a second time this weekend, but did attend NC State’s Junior Day back in January before visiting either one of them.

Redd plans on making his decision official on July 31st, so NC State will have to see if an offer this late in the game might alter his college decision.
