NC State Watching 4-Star 2019 Power Forward Chandler Lawson

Published

on

When NC State offered (September 11th) 2019 Power Forward Chandler Lawson (6’8″/205), the Wolfpack was still in hot pursuit of 5-Star Small Forward Wendell Moore and 4-Star Small Forward Patrick Williams. Since then, Moore committed to Duke, and Williams committed to Florida State.

At this point, Lawson is the last man standing. I’m not saying that other targets won’t emerge in the 2019 recruiting class, but at this point Lawson is who NC State is prioritizing to take that final scholarship.

Last week, NC State was up at Oak Hill Academy watching Lawson, as well as Cam Thomas who took his official visit to NC State this weekend.

Lawson was set to play his Senior Season at Oak Hill Academy up in Virginia, which is Keatts old stomping grounds, but yesterday news broke that he will be heading back home to Memphis to play for his father at Woodale High School.

Lawson spent the past three seasons with Memphis East High School, where he won 3 state championships under the tutelage of Penny Hardaway, who is now the head coach of Memphis.

ESPN ranks him as the #58 overall player in the 2019 recruiting class, and the #2 player in the state of Virginia. 247Sports ranks him as the #14 Power Forward in 2019.

At this point, my gut tells me NC State is late to the party. Lawson has already taken official visits to Ole Miss, Kansas, Georgia Tech and Oregon, and only has one remaining. The only chance NC State has is to land Lawson’s final official visit.

If NC State can’t pull a come-from-behind haul of Lawson, another 2019 prospect could obviously emerge, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see NC State pick up another graduate transfer late in the process.

4-Star 2019 G Dereon Seabron Commits to NC State!

Published

on

Well…that evolved quickly.

4-Star Combo Guard Dereon Seabron (6’6″/180) included NC State in his Final 5 schools 3 days ago, without even having an offer from the Wolfpack.

This weekend, Seabron took visit to Raleigh, attending the Pittsburgh game, and left with a scholarship offer in hand.

Obviously it made quite the impression.

Seabron officially committed to run with the Wolfpack tonight.

247Sports ranks Seabron as the #107 overall player nationally in the 2019 recruiting class, and the #6 player in the state of Virginia.

Seabron led Lake Taylor High School (Norfolk, VA) to a state championship as a Senior last year, earning Class 4 State Player of the Year honors (22.5 points and 11 boards per game). Instead of going to one of the smaller colleges that had offered him this season, he decided to prep one season at Massanutten Military Academy (Woodstock, VA) to pick up some Power 5 offers.

It looks like he found the Power 5 offer he was looking for.

Seabron joins 5-Star Point Guard Jalen Lecque as the second member of NC State’s 2019 recruiting class.

4-Star 2019 G Dereon Seabron Includes NC State in His Final-5

Published

on

4-Star 2019 Combo Guard Dereon Seabron (6’6″/180) revealed his Final 5 schools yesterday, and NC State was one of them, alongside Pitt, Georgia, VCU, and Providence.

247Sports ranks Seabron as the #107 overall player nationally in the 2019 recruiting class, and the #6 player in the state of Virginia.

NC State is the only team in his Final 5 that hasn’t officially offered him yet (Pitt just offered last week), which could change in the very near future.

Seabron led Lake Taylor High School (Norfolk, VA) to a state championship as a Senior last year, earning Class 4 State Player of the Year honors (22.5 points and 11 boards per game). Instead of going to one of the smaller colleges that had offered him this season, he decided to prep one season at Massanutten Military Academy (Woodstock, VA) to pick up some Power 5 offers.

He has already taken all 5 of his official visits to North Texas, VCU, Minnesota, ECU, and Providence.

Don’t forget, Wolfpack head coach Kevin Keatts roots run deep in Virginia.

NC State has Taken the Lead for 4-Star 2019 SF Christian Brown

Published

on

According to the experts over at 247Sports, NC State has taken the lead for 2019 4-Star Small Forward Christian Brown (6’6″/210). In the Fall, Georgia was thought to hold the advantage, but 8 Crystal Ball predictions have come in over the past 4 days, and all of them project that Brown will eventually commit to run with the Wolfpack.

Those predictions come from some of the best 247Sports has to offer, including Director of Basketball Recruiting Evan Daniels, National Recruiting Analyst Brian Snow and National Recruiting Analyst Josh Gershon. In the history of the 247Sports Crystal Ball, all three of these guys have all been successful in their predictions over 91% of the time.

Brown transferred from Lower Richmond (Columbia, South Carolina) to the prestigious Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Virginia) for his Senior season.

NC State made Brown’s Top-7 back in May along with Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, UNLV, Seton Hall and Florida. He has already taken official visits to Georgia, Clemson and UNLV, with two more remaining.

With all of this buzz coming in all at once, I would be shocked if Brown didn’t take an official visit to NC State. It’s also buzzing around that a visit to Illinois could be in the works.

ESPN ranks Brown as the #58 overall player in the 2019 class.
