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.
