Max Farthing Commits to NC State as a Preferred Walk-On

Published

on

2019 Guard Max Farthing (6’6″) committed to NC State as a preferred walk-on yesterday.

The Wolfpack was wise to not let Farthing get out of Raleigh, who is a student at Word of God Academy.

It’s shocking that Farthing doesn’t have more college offers. He’s considered one of the best shooters in the state of North Carolina.

After our most recent National Showcase, we stated, “In today’s basketball, shooting is more valued than ever before, so it’s somewhat challenging to fathom that Max Farthing doesn’t have multiple scholarship offers. At 6-foot-6 with legitimate thirty-foot shooting range, Farthing is an unbelievable floor-spacer and scoring threat that can make his mark against any opponent. He’s continued to tighten his handle and add poise as a creator within two to three dribbles. Farthing is a smart player that understands his skillset and embraces his role on both sides of the ball. He moves really well without the ball in his hands, able to dart around screens and quickly fire perimeter shots upon receiving a mere glimmer of space. Farthing showed the ability to go down low and take advantage of his size against smaller players at National Showcase, which was something he hasn’t really emphasized or prioritized until now. He’s an impactful defensive player that utilizes his length well to accumulate deflections and switch across multiple positions. His skillset is clearly defined, but that should honestly make him an even more attractive prospect for Division I programs” It’s likely that his role in the college ranks would basically be the same, regardless of what level he ultimately decides to play. That being said, schools in need of shooting should be prioritizing Farthing. (Phenom)
