The NC State basketball coaches will be in Charlotte today to see 2019 Top-10 prospect Wendell Moore.

The Future150 ranks Moore as the #6 overall player in the 2019 recruiting class.  The Shooting Guard out of Cox Mill High School (Concord, NC) is planning on unofficially visiting NC State on October 3rd for the Tailgate Tipoff and the football game against Louisville.  He also has unofficial visits scheduled for Kentucky (10/9) and Tennessee (10/10), and Wake Forest(1/6) in the near future.  Moore currently holds offers from UNC Charlotte and Tennessee, but he is receiving attention from the top basketball programs in the country.

USAToday wrote an article back in January posing the question: “Is Wendell Moore the best 13-year old hooper since Andrew Wiggins?”  Coach Gottfried won’t be the only ACC coach trying to keep his talent in state.

4-Star Forward Kanon Catchings is Taking an Official Visit to NC State Starting Tonight

Published

on

4-Star 2024 Forward Kanon Catchings (6’9″/215) will be taking an Official Visit to NC State starting this evening, according to a source.

Catchings is the #31 overall player nationally in the 2024 recruiting class according to Rivals. ESPN ranks him as the #2 player in the state of Georgia, playing for Overtime Elite with 2024 NC State Signee Trey Parker.

On September 22, 2022, Catchings verbally committed to Purdue, but he decommitted from the Boilermakers a week ago. He took an Official Visit to BYU nearly immediately after.

Technically speaking, after Ernest Ross announced he was coming back, NC State already has 13 scholarship players heading into the 2024-25 season. With that being said, in the world of NIL, teams can be more creative, covering someone’s scholarship costs with NIL money.

This year at Overtime Elite, Catchings averaged 14.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game, shooting 66.7% from the field, and 36.2% from three.
