Carson McCorckle (6’2, 150lbs) might not look like a kid who is likely going to be one of 2020’s prized prospects, but that’s where you’d be mistaken. McCorkle, who attends Raleigh’s Broughton High School, is a dead eye shooter with good size and surprising athleticism.
Still years away from his college debut (he’s a freshman), coaches around the country are starting to take notice. Iowa was the first to offer, then UNC started showing interest a few days ago, followed by an offer from Georgia Tech. Now, Mark Gottfried and the Wolfpack are making sure Carson knows that his hometown school is certainly interested.
McCorkle has been turning heads since Middle School (Daniels Middle) and he’s only getting better. This past summer he’s shown that he’s starting to grow into his frame, play more physical and show more athleticism, making him only that much more enticing to college coaches.
It’s still really early in the process, but NC State will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in this recruiting battle. Carson is a Raleigh native who seems to have been following the Wolfpack rather closely on social media.
If you attend NC State or just live in the Raleigh area, make sure you check out this kid’s game over at Broughton High. (We’ll post the schedule when its out). He should certainly be a fun one to watch.
