Yesterday NC State had 5-Star 2020 Power Forward Isaiah Todd (6’10″/195) in for an unofficial visit. Todd is the #1 player in the 2020 recruiting class according to 247 and ESPN, and plays John Marshall High School in Richmond, Virginia.
NC State offered Todd a scholarship back on July 17th, and the Wolfpack were recently in to visit him on September 14th.
Wolfpack head coach Kevin Keatts has deep roots in Virginia. He’s from Lynchburg, and coached Hargrave Military Academy from 2003-11. NC State assistant coach James Johnson is also a native of Virginia, and was an assistant at George Mason for two years, and the head coach at Virginia Tech two years. Wolfpack assistant coach Takayo Siddle played for Keatts at Hargrave, and was an assistant coach there. NC State assistant coach A.W. Hamilton also played for Keatts at Hargrave, became an assistant coach for him, and took over the head coaching job there in 2011.
I explain all that to make the point that the NC State coaching staff is going to make recruiting the state of Virginia a HIGH priority.
