Keatts in early with offer to 2021 SG Terquavion Smith, Lists NC State as ‘dream school’

Published

on

Kevin Keatts may be busy prepping his Wolfpack squad for the 2018-19 season, but that isn’t stopping him from keeping his foot on the gas on the recruiting trail.

Yesterday, Keatts and staff offered 2021 prospect Terquavion Smith out of Farmville, NC.

While this kid is still a ways away in terms of making any sort of commitment, these are the type of offers that you can learn a lot from.

For one, this is Smith’s first D1 offer. What that tells you is that Keatts is doing his homework. He’s using every advantage he can as a head coach, including taking risks by being the first to offer. This shows that he has a ton of confidence in his ability to evaluate talent.

This also gives you an idea of what Keatts is looking for in the 2021 class.

The 6’2 Smith is a scoring guard, who as a freshman, scored 19.4 points per game.

PrepHoops.com did a write up on him last year. Here is what he had to say…

“The keys to my game is my three-point shot and my mid-range game. I need to get stronger but there is a lot I can improve on,” Smith said. (PrepHoops)

And when they asked him about his dream schools…

“I would hope to hear from NC State, UCLA or Duke one day.” Smith said. (PrepHoops)

Published

ESPN really likes NC State’s 2020 Men’s Basketball recruiting class, which they rank 7th nationally.

They have recently upgraded Wolfpack signees Forward Nick Farrar and Guard Shakeel Moore to 4-Star prospects, which means that ESPN now ranks ALL 5 of NC State’s signees as 4-star prospects now.

As you can see above, according to ESPN’s rankings, NC State has signed the #3, #4, #5, and #6 players in the state of North Carolina.

What you can’t see above is that ESPN also ranks Center Ebenezer Dowuona as a 4-Star prospect, and the #10 player in the state of Georgia.

Published

on

4-Star 2020 Center Cliff Omoruyi (6’11″/235) revealed his Top-8 schools today, and NC State made the cut alongside Memphis, UCONN, Rutgers, Kentucky, Miami, Auburn, and Arizona State.

NC State offered Omoruyi back on June 30th of last year, and he included the Wolfpack in his Top-13 back on September 28th.

247Sports ranks Omoruyi as the #42 overall player in the nation in the 2020 recruiting class, the #8 Center, and the #2 player in the state of New Jersey. Omoruyi plays for Roselle Catholic (Roselle, NJ).

He doesn’t plan on making his decision until April 15th.

Technically speaking, NC State’s class is full, but you have to always be prepared for attrition, especially if Redshirt Junior Forward D.J. Funderburk decides to explore his professional options after 4 years of college.
