De’Von Graves (Appomattox County, Virginia) was the very 1st member of NC State’s 2018 football recruiting class. He committed to run with the Pack on April 9th of last year after an impressive unofficial visit.
Graves (6’1”/190) is a 4-star recruit according to ESPN, and is listed as an Athlete, because he is talented wide receiver and cornerback. His versatility is a plus, but it looks like NC State is primarily looking to use him at corner. Virginia Tech, the hometown school, offered him last December, and has been trying to flip him ever since, but no dice so far.
The 1st Wolfpack commitment is still committed.
Graves runs a 4.42 40-yard dash, and has a 44-inch vertical.
