3-Star 2020 SF Jaden Seymour Talks NC State

Published

on

NC State offered 3-Star 2020 Small Forward Jaden Seymour (6’7″/185/Northside Christian Academy/Charlotte, North Carolina) back on October 20th, and he recently caught up with Corey Evans of Rivals to break down his recruitment.

There is no leader at this point, but NC State, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Oklahoma State have made him a priority at this point, with the Wolfpack and Hokies maybe in the lead.

Here’s what he had to say to Evans about NC State.

NC State: “The visit was great to just see the environment and be around the coaches. I got to see them practice and everybody went hard during it. It was just a good environment and something good to look forward to.

“I think he (Kevin Keatts) is a great man. He is looking to help his players and not just win games. He is a great coach to me and is working on developing a relationship with me.” (Rivals)

Seymour has taken unofficial visits to both NC State and Wake Forest.

He possesses the versatility that Keatts loves on his roster, being able to play 3 positions.

“It is going pretty good so far. I am just trying to put everything together with the team and get better,” Seymour said. “I do a little bit of everything, really. I can shoot, I can finish, I can bring the ball up if need-be, I can pass and I am good on defense. I think I can guard anybody.” (Rivals)

Check out the rest of Evans’ article to see what Seymour had to say about the other schools mentioned above.

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.
