3-Star 2019 NC State Safety target Cecil Powell (6’1″/193) decommitted from Baylor on Saturday.
I’d like to thank the whole Baylor staff for giving me the opportunity to play at the next level and see what they have to offer but I will be decomitting from Baylor University …#Respectmydecision📝🙏🏾

Powell originally committed to Baylor on December 10th.
NC State offered him two weeks ago, and he took an official visit to NC State 1 week ago. He was supposed to take an official visit to Oregon this weekend, but apparently the Wolfpack coaching staff took an in-home visit with Powell, and he didn’t end up going.
Powell had 45 tackles, 8 interceptions, 5 pass breakups and 4 forced fumbles for Piper High School (Sunrise, FL) this year.
We will have to wait and see who Powell signs with on Wednesday at 9:30am.

4-Star QB Braden Davis Includes NC State in First 9
2022 4-Star Quarterback Braden Davis (6’4″/193) out of Delaware revealed his First 9 schools last week, and NC State made the cut along with Penn State, Texas A&M, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Temple, LSU and Alabama.

247Sports ranks Davis as the #87 player overall nationally in 2022, the #5 Dual Threat Quarterback, and the #1 player in the state of Delaware.
NC State offered Davis back on June 14th.

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