4-Star 2020 SG Cam Thomas Talks NC State

Published

on

4-Star 2020 Shooting Guard Cam Thomas (6’3″/180) recently discussed his recruitment with Corey Evans of Rivals, and he had good things to say about the Wolfpack.

NC State: “It was a great first visit. It was to learn just how coach (Kevin) Keatts and coach (James) Johnson interact with their players. I was very impressed, and I loved being on campus with them. They are great people.

“He (Keatts) is a player’s coach and a guard’s coach. He says he lets his guards go and that I would be perfect for his system and that I am just a guy that he loves.” (Rivals)

Thomas already took his first (and only thus far) official visit to NC State back in October, but is looking to take one to Miami as well.

“I think that I am going to be taking an official visit to Miami,” he said. “They just offered me and Pitt wants me to come to a game whenever they play UNC on Jan. 5. Miami would be an official, and Pitt would be an unofficial.”

“I think I am going to take most of my official visits whenever my season is over with and focus on my season now and then get some visits done before my AAU season starts up,” he said. (Rivals)

The Oak Hill (Virginia) standout is right on the verge of a 5-star rating, sitting at #29 overall in the 2020 class according to ESPN.

Check out the rest of Evans article to see what he had to say about Auburn, Illinois, Miami, Pitt, UCONN and Virginia Tech.

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.
