NC State Offers Leesville Road’s Carter Whitt

Published

on

One of the questions of the John Wall Holiday Invitational was whether or not NC State head coach Kevin Keatts would offer 3-Star 2021 Point Guard Carter Whitt (6’3″/170) out of Leesville Road High School in Raleigh.

The answer to the question ended up being ‘yes.’

Whitt had taken an unofficial visit to NC State a year ago, and Keatts had been out to watch him, but the scholarship offer had stayed in the pocket.

At the John Wall Invitational, Whitt made the All-Tournament Team, after averaging 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5.7 assists.

247Sports ranks Whitt as the #57 overall player nationally in the 2021 class, the #5 point guard, and the #2 player in the state of North Carolina.

Whitt is averaging 19.6 points per game, 8.0 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game through the first 12 games of 2018-19.

Ole Miss was the 1st Power 5 school to offer Carter Whitt, followed by Virginia. NC State is the 2nd ACC school to offer Whitt.

ESPN really likes NC State’s 2020 Men’s Basketball recruiting class, which they rank 7th nationally.

They have recently upgraded Wolfpack signees Forward Nick Farrar and Guard Shakeel Moore to 4-Star prospects, which means that ESPN now ranks ALL 5 of NC State’s signees as 4-star prospects now.

As you can see above, according to ESPN’s rankings, NC State has signed the #3, #4, #5, and #6 players in the state of North Carolina.

What you can’t see above is that ESPN also ranks Center Ebenezer Dowuona as a 4-Star prospect, and the #10 player in the state of Georgia.

4-Star 2020 Center Cliff Omoruyi (6’11″/235) revealed his Top-8 schools today, and NC State made the cut alongside Memphis, UCONN, Rutgers, Kentucky, Miami, Auburn, and Arizona State.

NC State offered Omoruyi back on June 30th of last year, and he included the Wolfpack in his Top-13 back on September 28th.

247Sports ranks Omoruyi as the #42 overall player in the nation in the 2020 recruiting class, the #8 Center, and the #2 player in the state of New Jersey. Omoruyi plays for Roselle Catholic (Roselle, NJ).

He doesn’t plan on making his decision until April 15th.

Technically speaking, NC State’s class is full, but you have to always be prepared for attrition, especially if Redshirt Junior Forward D.J. Funderburk decides to explore his professional options after 4 years of college.
