Football Recruiting Update – June 7, 2018

 

Recent Commitments:  OLB Jaylon Scott and RB Jamious Griffin. (We will break down recent Commits Drake Thomas and Zovon Lindsay in our next post).

Several analysts have compared Griffin to a mixture of Matt Dayes and Nyheim Hines, a complete player who can contribute out of the backfield by running and catching the ball.  Even though Griffin was splitting carries last year for Rome HS, I fully anticipate him to have a huge senior season both receiving and running the ball.  At this stage, I would compare Griffin to Gallaspy, but with better hands, more agility, and more game breaking type speed.  For comparison reasons, Gallaspy was a 3* (#41 overall Running Back in the country) and Griffin is a 3* (#22 overall Running Back in the country) on 24/7 sports and Scout.com.

Several analysts have also raved about Jaylon Scott.  As I mentioned in my previous update about Linebackers, Scott is a marquee, super athletic talented linebacker who may contribute immediately on special teams for us.  Analysts have said that Scott is a lot better than he is currently rated and should definitely be in the top 10 prospects in NC in the 2019 class.  After reviewing his tape a few weeks ago, I completely agree.  I think at times he outshined All-American Dax Hollifield last year for his high school team.  An interesting thing about Scott, he is already 6’3″, 230, and is only 16 years old.  Keep an eye on this because if his height keeps shooting up or his weight gain goes up a lot, he very well could wind up at Defensive End for us.

 

Big Decommitments:  4* RB Zonovan Knight from Southern Nash HS (NC) and 3* WR Donovan Greene from Mount Airy HS (NC) have both decommitted from Duke and are looking around.  I mentioned this as a possibility for Knight a while back.  I think with Hines getting drafted as high as he did and being a local product, a lot of heads are turning, especially in a positive way for the recruiting prowess and developmental ability of Coach Des Kitchings. I look for both of these guys to visit State this summer, and I like our chances for both of them.

 

Upcoming Official Visits:

JUCO DE Savion Williams, 4* DE Derrick McClendon, and 3* OL Carter Colquitt are all officially visiting Raleigh on June 14- 16th.

3* OL Triston Miller is officially visiting Raleigh on June 21 – 23rd.

I fully anticipate more marquee guys will be officially visiting State this summer, including 4* ATH JR Walker, 4* LB Traveon Freshwater, 3* LB Drake Thomas (announcing June 1st), 3* QB Zach Calzada, 4* RB Zonovan Knight, 3* WR Donovan Greene, 3* TE Kyle Bilodeau (who might commit in early June), 3* DE Christian Rorie, 4* DE Savion Jackson, 3* Terrell Dawkins, 3* OT Zovon Lindsay, and 3* CB Syhiem Battle.

 

Position of Need Breakdown:

 

Defensive Secondary

Commit:  3* CB Jalen Frazier.

Targets: 

 

4* Safety Khalid Martin – Attends East Forsyth HS (North Carolina). 6’2″, 195.  Rated the #21 Safety in the country (4*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, NR 3* on Rivals, and the #20 Safety in the country (4*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  77 Tackles, 3 Tackles for loss, 1 Sack, 4 Interceptions (3 returned for Touchdowns), and 1 Fumble Recovery

 

 

Analysis: This kid is a great football player.  Reminds me a lot of Adrian Wilson by his ability to square up ball carriers and deliver a massive hit.  Needs to work on technique with hitting sometimes instead of selling his entire body out for a massive hit.  Great ball skills.  Reads and reacts to plays very well.  Well coached player who will be a star in college, especially if he can add 20 pounds or so to his frame and improve his overall speed.  He has even played some nickel in HS, so he could definitely see the field immediately if he would commit to the Pack.  Looks like our primary competition for him will be Virginia Tech.  We have surged quite a bit for him lately and I would not be surprised to see him drag out his commitment announcement until sometime in the fall.

 

3* CB Warren Burrell – Attends North Gwinnett HS (Georgia).  6’0″, 166, 4.72 40.  Rated the #35 Cornerback in the country (3*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, the #28 Cornerback and the #250 overall prospect in the country (4*) on Rivals, and the #55 Cornerback in the country (3*) by ESPN.

 

Junior Stats:  26 Tackles, 5 Interceptions, 2 Fumble Recoveries

 

 

Analysis: High School Teammates with another one of our CB targets, DJ Turner. A good athlete with good ball skills, but lacks physicality due to needing to add some strength and weight to his frame.  Makes good plays on the ball downfield and high points the ball well in pass coverage.  Does not play a lot of man coverage in High School, this could be due to schemes being called or lack of strength. Appears to have long arms and a lean frame, which our coaches covet. Needs to work on loosening up his hips when backpedaling and some technique things, which could be coached very easily at the collegiate level.  Plays against extremely talented competition in HS. We have made his top 7 list recently.  Leaning to Georgia recently, and I could see him committing to Georgia early this summer.

 

3* CB Shyheim Battle – Attends Rocky Mount HS (North Carolina).  6’2″, 173, 4.72 40.  Rated the #33 Cornerback in the country (3*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, NR (3*) on Rivals, and the #43 Cornerback in the country (3*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  17 catches for 361 yards with 4 Touchdowns. 31 Tackles and 1 Tackle for Loss

 

 

Analysis: Lengthy and athletic corner that our coaches covet. We have been consistently in his top schools for a while. Very good athlete in space, needs to gain some weight and strength.  Comes up well on the run but relies a little too much on his size at times downfield in the passing game.  High points the ball well.  Reminds me a lot of Mike Stevens’ tape from High School because of his length and great athleticism.  With his height, he could do a lot of different things, even play Nickel in college.  We are his current leader and I think that he will commit to us by the end of June.

 

3* S Brandon Hill – Attends Wekiva HS (Florida). 5’11”, 200, 4.58 40.  Rated the #37 Safety in the country (3*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, NR on Rivals, and the #30 Safety in the country (4*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  No available.

 

 

Analysis: Another outstanding prospect.  Tape reminds me a lot of Khalid Martin’s tape.  Very, very physical safety who loves to hit and loves to hit hard.  Great size already to be a nickel type player at the collegiate level.  Reads and reacts extremely well in the running game and comes up to make a lot of hits.  Guesses at times with QB type option plays, but this is a correction that can be easily coached at the collegiate level.  A really like his overall speed a lot for someone his size and hitting ability.  Between us, Georgia Tech, and Maryland for him right now. I could see us getting a commitment from him after he officially visits Raleigh later this summer.

 

4* CB Kaiir Elam – Attends The Benjamin School (Florida).  6’1″, 182, 4.51 40.  Rated the #10 Cornerback in the country (4*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, the #20 Cornerback in the country (4*) by Rivals, and the #8 Athlete in the country and the #70 overall prospect in the country (4*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  25 catches for 361 yards with 4 Touchdowns.  18 tackles with 2 Interceptions. 12 Punt Returns for 103 yards, 7 Kick Returns for 122 yards

 

 

Analysis:  An extremely talented athlete who excels in almost every facet of the game.  Athleticism makes it so he could play anywhere from slot receiver to corner in college.  Very quick for someone of his size, but excels in the open field and makes playing the game look extremely easy. We were named one of his top schools a while back, but I really think that his recruitment is going to come down to a Auburn and Florida battle, with Florida winning out.

 

4* CB Tyus Fields – Attends Hough HS (North Carolina).  5’10”, 175, 4.69 40.  Rated the #22 Cornerback in the country (4*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, the #32 Cornerback in the country (4*) by Rivals, and the #18 Cornerback and the #194 overall prospect in the country (4*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  92 Tackles, 4 Tackles for Loss, 2 Interceptions.  6 Punt Returns for 86 yards, 6 Kick Returns for 68 yards.

 

 

Analysis:  Another extremely good football player with a great family lineage of playing in the defensive secondary.  I think his collegiate future is probably at safety or nickel instead of corner due to less than stellar height.  However, he does have great ball skills and a great ability to read the ball in the air to make a play.  Several of his hits on film concern me because of how high he is hitting the receiver or ball carrier, at the collegiate level a lot of these will be broken tackles and the play will continue.  Great looking athlete on film, but needs to gain about 20 pounds of strength.  At this point, it looks like he is leaning to Clemson (not a huge surprise because his brother, Mark Fields, also played at Clemson).

 

3* CB DJ Turner – Attends North Gwinnett HS (Georgia).  5’11”, 170, 4.63 40.  Rated the #39 Cornerback in the country (3*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, the #43 Cornerback in the country (3*) by Rivals, and the #23 Cornerback in the country (4*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  50 Tackles, 4 Tackles for Loss, 2 Interceptions, 2 Kick Returns for 98 yards

 

 

Analysis:  High School Teammates with another target, 3* CB Warren Burrell. Probably a better overall athlete than Burrell, but Burrell is the better football player. Plays in a talent rich area of Georgia, which could explain some of his recruiting stars in comparison to other better looking prospects from other states. Looks to leaning towards Michigan at this time.

 

3* Safety Tykee Smith – Attends Imhotep Institute (Pennsylvania). 5’11”, 187, 4.63 40.  Rated the #32 Safety in the country (3*) on 24/7 sports and Scout, the #21 Safety in the country (4*) by Rivals, and the #52 Cornerback in the country (3*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  42 carries for 469 yards with 9 Touchdowns, 9 catches for 247 yards and 5 Touchdowns. 10 tackles, 1 sack. 1 Kick Return for 25 yards

 

 

Analysis: An extremely good athlete who does a lot of different things for his HS.  For some of his film, I think he would be better off as a slot receiver in college instead of a safety.  Does bring a lot of athleticism and skills to the defensive side of the ball also, including playmaking in the open field.  His recruitment is considered to be wide open now with no real favorites, we offered him a scholarship on March 29th.  I do not anticipate that Smith will make a college decision anytime soon.

 

4* Safety Anthony Harris – Attends Havelock HS (North Carolina).  6’1″, 175.  Rated the #10 Safety in the country (4*) by 24/7 sports and Scout, the #13 Safety in the country and the #201 overall prospect (4*) by Rivals, and the #14 Safety in the country and the #243 overall prospect (4*) by ESPN.

Junior Stats:  25 carries for 219 yards with 4 Touchdowns, 13 catches for 356 yards and 3 Touchdowns.  88 Tackles, 9.5 Tackles for Loss, 1 Interception. 8 Punt Returns for 269 yards.

 

 

Analysis:  We are surging in interest for Anthony Harris lately.  His recruitment has not been very noisy so far, so he is probably waiting a while to commit to any school.  Havelock had a practice at Carter-Finley a few weeks ago, so I would think that we are starting to get in his head for the right reasons lately.  Another player cut in the mold of Khalid Martin and Brandon Hill, very physical player who loves to hit.

 

 

My Predictions:

 

I think that we take 3-4 total secondary players in this year’s class. We already have 3* CB Jalen Frazier in the fold, who I think is very, very underrated.  

 

I look for us to get commitments from Shyheim Battle in the next few weeks, and I think that we look extremely good for Khalid Martin, Brandon Hill, and Anthony Harris lately.  If we get Battle, Frazier, Martin, and Hill, we would have 2 Corners and 2 Safeties and that would be a nice haul for this year’s class.

NC State Football Recruiting Update – October 18, 2018

NC State Football Recruiting Update – October 18, 2018

 

New offer:

3* Dual-Threat QB Payton Thorne from Illinois.  I broke down his film on the recruiting forum earlier this week.  A very intriguing prospect who is putting up huge numbers and has enormous playmaking ability coupled with great athleticism.

More on Thorne:

Junior Season Stats (At Napierville Central HS, his current school): 403 yards rushing with 5 TDs, 2,305 yards passing with 25 TDs and 6 Interceptions.

Sophomore Season Stats (At Matea Valley HS): Passing – 94-155 for 1,325 yards with 14 TDs and 7 Interceptions, 48 carries for 160 yards with 2 Touchdowns

His father is the head football coach at North Central College.

Thorne appears to be a great kid, as evidenced by this article.

A good quote about Thorne from a teammate: “He’s a great leader. He puts the ball where you need it and all we’ve got to do is run under it.”

Another good article about Thorne from Prep Analyst Tom Lemming.

He verbally committed to Western Michigan on July 3, 2018 – reportedly to join former teammate WR Jayden Reed at WMU, who is currently a freshman.

Another interesting quote from Thorne’s dad regarding the process of recruiting college football players (courtesy of Naperville Magazine):

“That’s true in most sports. North Central College football coach Jeff Thorne has an interesting perspective, in that he recruits athletes and is the parent of a star football player  His son Payton was the quarterback who took Naperville Central to the state quarterfinals last fall as a junior.

“That’s a great question: Who can you trust? Because you don’t have to look very far to see coaches leaving institutions after a year for a better job,” Jeff says. “I’m not suggesting it is wrong for anybody to look for a better job. The problem is the athletes are the ones who are stuck holding the bag.

“So many kids, whether society likes it or not, are choosing institutions in large part because of the coaches—not so much the academics—and they kind of have that backward. Especially at the smaller school level, you’ve got to make sure you’re finding the right fit academically, and then make sure the other ducks fall in a row as far as liking the coaching staff and the athletic program.”

Payton has six Division I offers so far, including one from Western Michigan, and he wants to make his decision by the fall. He says it’s gratifying to feel wanted.

“I got my first letter freshman year,” Payton says. “Being recruited is definitely something that feels good. You know you’ve worked to get to that point, so being recruited is what a lot of people like.”

 

Season Stats for Current Commits (Updated from last week):

4* DE Savion Jackson – 51 tackles, including 19 for loss and five sacks

4* DT CJ Clark – 73 tackles and eight sacks.

4* DT Joshua Harris – 42 tackles, including nine tackles for loss and five sacks, and a forced fumble

4* S Khalid Martin – 48 tackles, including one for loss, three pass breakups, an interception, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, a 73-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and 27-yard touchdown reception.

3* RB Zonovan Knight – 54 carries for 830 yards (15.4 yards per carry) and 10 touchdowns, two receptions for28 yards and a touchdown, 219 kickoff return yards and a touchdown and 43-yard punt return for a score.

3* RB Jamious Griffin – 140 carries for 1,695 yards rushing (12 yards per carry) and 22 touchdowns and seven receptions for 145 yards and two scores.

3* LB Drake Thomas – 69 tackles, three sacks, two pass breakups, one interception, which he returned for a touchdown, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. 15 carries for 116 yards and five touchdowns on offense.

3* LB Jaylon Scott – 49 tackles, including 11 for loss and two sacks sack, a pass breakup, forced fumble, two blocked punts.

3* C Dylan McMahon – 34 knockdown blocks on offense and 47 tackles, including six for loss, a sack,  and a forced fumble on defense

3* CB Jalen Frazier – 28 tackles, one for loss, a pass breakup and an interception

3* WR Keyon Lesane – 26 carries for 171 yards and two touchdowns and 19 receptions and three touchdowns in five games.

3* TE Chris Toudle – 7 receptions for 105 yards and 14 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown.

3* OL Zovan Lindsay –  18 pancake blocks on offense. Defensively, 15 tackles, including six for loss, two sacks and a safety.

3* S Jakeen Harris – 42 tackles, a pass breakup, forced fumble, a fumble recovery, which he return for a score, and three interceptions on defense and two catches for 60 yards and eight touchdowns on offense.

4* CB Shyheim Battle – 27 tackles, including on for loss, three interceptions, three pass breakups, three receptions for 44 yards, a two-point conversion catch and 5 kick returns for 175 yards.

3* OG Ikem Ekwonu – 19 knockdown blocks on offense and 15 tackles and 2.5 sacks on defense.

3* DE Terrell Dawkins –  7 tackles, including four for loss and a sack, and a forced fumble.

3* OT Triston Miller – 20 knockdown blocks on offense and 13 tackles and three sacks on defense.

 

Departures from Team:

Since my last update, RB Nakia Robinson and TE Damien Darden have both decided to leave the team.

Darden greatly had his playing time cut when Angeline got eligibility and Robinson was the 4th string running back.

This frees up two offensive scholarships for the 2019 cycle, if our coaches wish to use them.  One could be for another QB to build depth and one could be for another offensive playmaker (WR? – Possibly Isaiah Washington, Breion Fuller, Ja’Quan Shepherd, Mohammad Toure)

 

Injury News:

RB Trent Pennix appears to be fighting some kind of leg injury and has not played in several weeks due to the emergence of Ricky Person Jr.

Most rumors have him possibly redshirting this season. If he indeed redshirts, we would not be taking another RB in this class.

 

Newest Recruiting Graphics: 

Tyler McIntire and his crew continue to amaze with recruiting graphics.

 

Several examples:

 

Quanvaris Crouch Update:

Crouch plans to attend our game this weekend at Clemson and will be taking an official visit to Clemson sometime in November.

In my opinion, his recruitment is far from over, but I think he is looking at Clemson and several other schools a lot more than he is State, but this weekend could open his eyes more.

He has been at State at least one time this season for an unofficial visit also.

 

Targets Off The Board:

Target 3* DT Ben Smiley committed to UVA.

Target 4* S JR Walker committed to Virginia Tech (coincidentally his last visit, albeit an unofficial visit before he decided his college destination).

Will 4-Star ATH JR Walker Choose NC State at Noon?

Published

on

4-Star 2019 Athlete JR Walker will be announcing his college decision at Noon today, and all signs point to the Clayton standout choosing NC State.

Five of the experts over at 247Sports made their Crystal Ball projection of where Walker would land, and all 5 of them picked NC State. That includes Steve Wiltfong, the National Director of Recruiting for 247Sports, who has made 1,849 Crystal Ball predictions, and been right 89% of the time.

Walker has a Top-5 of NC State, South Carolina, UNC, Virginia Tech and Duke that he announced back in May. He took official visits to all the schools in his Top-5 with the exception of Duke. The Wolfpack offered Walker a scholarship back on December 5th, 2016. Walker has stated on numerous occasions since March that NC State was his leader.

That hasn’t stopped the other schools in his Top-5 from pursuing him with vigor, especially South Carolina and Virginia Tech. Walker’s last official visit was to Blacksburg, Virginia last weekend.

247Sports ranks Walker as the #173 overall player in the 2019 class, the #9 athlete, and #6 player in the state of North Carolina. He’s teammates with 4-Star Defensive End Savion Jackson at Clayton High School, who is the highest rated player in the Wolfpack’s 2019 recruiting class.

If Walker chooses to run with the Pack at Noon, #Pack19 will have six 4-star commitments.
