5-Star 2019 Small Forward Wendell Moore (6’5”/210) took his 1st Official Visit to NC State this past weekend, and we caught up with him, and he gave us the rundown.
Why did you choose to take your 1st Official Visit to NC State?
“They have been recruiting hard since they first took the job at NC State. When I was talking to them about setting up my Official Visit, they said they wanted to be the first school, so I made them my first visit.”
Overall, how was your experience?
“I had a great time. I just got to experience the life of an NC State basketball player, and it went really well.”
Did you bond with any of the current Wolfpack players?
“I already knew most of the guys, but I was around C.J. Bryce and Torin Dorn the most, and they showed me a good time.”
How was the football game?
“The football game was crazy. I had a chance to go over to the student tailgate, and it was really hype. The students really love their sports.”
What was your favorite part of your visit?
“My favorite part was just seeing how they operate on a day-to-day basis, and hanging out with the guys was really cool too.”
What do you like about NC State?
”I like NC State because you kinda get the best of both worlds. They are a great basketball program, so there’s that side of it, but at the same time they are a really good school academically. You also get to experience what the college life is all about.”
What is Kevin Keatts’ pitch for you to run with the Pack?
“His pitch was just that I would come in and have a chance to make an immediate impact. He explained that I am his number one priority in the class, and that he is trying to build something around me.”
Moore is the #1 player in the state of North Carolina according to ESPN, and the #18 overall player in the 2019 recruiting class. He included NC State in his Top 5 on May 4th.
NC State originally offered Moore a scholarship before he even stepped foot on the court as a freshman in high school.
He has Official Visits planned for Duke on September 22nd, Wake Forestst on September 29th, and UNC on October 12th.
