NC State Makes Final-5 for 4-Star F Keon Ambrose-Hylton, Sets Official Visit

Published

on

4-Star 2020 F Keon Ambrose-Hylton (6’8″/200) revealed his Final-5 schools today, and NC State made the cut along with Arkansas, Alabama, Dayton, and USC.

According to Patrick O’Brien at Phenom Hoops, Ambrose-Hylton will be taking an Official Visit to NC State next weekend (September 27-29). He also has Official Visits scheduled to the rest of the schools in his Final 5 as well (He already took one to Dayton).

Here’s what he told O’Brien about the Wolfpack:

NC State: “Great team, great transition.  Head coach Kevin Keatts has stated I will make a huge impact in my freshman year.  The Wolfpack seems insane, they definitely go hard for their team.” (PH)

Ambrose-Hylton is listed as a Power Forward by 247Sports and Rivals, while ESPN lists him as a Small Forward. ESPN ranks Ambrose as the #58 overall player in the 2020 recruiting class, the #13 small forward, and the #1 player in the state of Ontario, Canada. 247Sports ranks him as the #13 Power Forward in 2020.

NC State was late to the party, offering Ambrose-Hylton less than 2 weeks ago (September 9), but they must have made quite the impression.

Ambrose-Hylton plays for Andrews Osborne Academy in Toronto, Canada.

According to O’Brien, Ambrose-Hylton plans on making his decision in early November.

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.

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.
