5 Star Keldon Johnson Will Announce Decision Saturday

Published

on

This Saturday night at 6pm, NC State 5 Star 2018 Shooting Guard target Keldon Johnson will be announcing his college decision.

The Wolfpack technically doesn’t have any more scholarships available in 2018, unless Omer Yurtseven leaves early or someone transfers. The likelihood of this happening on a yearly basis is pretty high. With that being said, for a player like Johnson, NC State will find a way to make room.

From the beginning, people thought he was a Texas lean. Johnson plays for Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, and the Longhorns head coach Shaka Smart is no stranger to Virginia, coaching VCU for years. Recently Kentucky has made a big push for Keldon as well, possibly taking the lead in the mind of some analysts. But don’t count out NC State. No one has recruited Johnson harder than they have, and according to our intel, his father would love for him to stay closer to home, and play at NC State, so he can attend all of his games.

Published

4-Star wing Demarr Langford just eliminated Texas A&M from his list, leaving only NC State and Boston College.

Langford was scheduled to take an Official Visit to Texas A&M this upcoming weekend, but that is cancelled now, because he will be announcing his decision this weekend.

Rivals ranks Langford as the #80 overall player in the 2020 recruiting class, and the #20 Small Forward. 247Sports ranks him as the #15 Shooting Guard, and ESPN ranks him as the #1 player in the state of New Hampshire.

NC State offered Langford on August 20th.

All signs are pointing to Langford committing to Boston College. He plays for Brewster Academy up in New Hampshire, and his brother Makai Ashton-Langford transferred from Providence to BC this Summer. All 5 of the Crystal Ball predictions over at 247Sports have Langford flying with the Golden Eagles, including Cory Smith from NC State affiliate Pack Pride, who cast his vote today. Also, Andrew Slater who is the author of the tweet above, also cast his vote.

Published

on

2021 Center Roosevelt Wheeler (6’10″/220) will be taking an Official Visit to NC State this weekend.

It’s rare for a Junior to take an Official Visit, so Wheeler’s interest in NC State must be high.

Assistant Coach James Johnson is a native of Powhatan, Virginia, and coached at Longwood College, Hargrave Military Academy, George Mason and Virginia Tech, which are all in the Commonwealth. Assistant Takayo Siddle played for, and served as a coach with Keatts at Hargrave. Assistant Roy Roberson coached 20+ years in the state of Virginia.

NC State offered Wheeler on August 20th last year after a visit. The coaches have been in to watch him on numerous occasions since then.
