    Should I lose all hope that Triston Miller comes back? Is February’s signing day when Jamious Plans to make his plans official? I’m still holding out hope we get both

Could 3-Star DT Henry Bryant Flip From Louisville to NC State Today?

Published

on

The early national signing period begins today, and there’s a chance that 3-Star Defensive Tackle Henry Bryant (5’11″/275) flips his commitment from Louisville to NC State.

That is what Adam Lichtenstein of the South Florida Sun Sentinel predicts will happen.

Potential Flips

Henry Bryant III, Atlantic, DL

Bryant finished his final season at Atlantic with another dominant season. The three-star defensive lineman has been committed to Louisville since June after taking an official visit there in May. But the Atlantic star might be having a change of heart. He took an official visit to N.C. State last weekend, according to 247Sports. While I would not be surprised if Bryant sticks with Louisville when he announces his decision on Thursday, it appears he’ll join the Wolfpack. Prediction: N.C. State. (Sun-Sentinel)

Considering the fact that Bryant plays for Atlantic High School in Delray Beach Florida, this is a noteworthy voice to listen to.

Bryant committed to Louisville on June 13th, but took an Official Visit to NC State on December 13th.

4-Star OT Austin Blaske Decommits From NC State

Published

on

On the eve of National Signing Day, NC State received a punch to the gut when 4-Star Offensive Tackle Austin Blasko tweeted out that he was decommitting from the Wolfpack at 11pm.

From the looks of it, it would seem that Georgia possibly swept in at the last second, and Blaske could be signing with the Bulldogs tomorrow instead.

Blaske was the third highest rated commit in NC State’s recruiting class according to 247Sports, and 1 of only 4 4-Star commits along with Wide Receiver Porter Rooks, Defensive Tackle Davin Vann and Safety Nehki Meredith.

This is a huge blow to the 2020 NC State recruiting class, considering the fact that he repped the Pack about as hard as any other member.
