Published

on

4-Star 2021 Wide Receiver Gavin Blackwell (6’0″/170) revealed his Top-6 schools yesterday, and NC State was one of them alongside UNC, Duke, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

Blackwell had 51 receptions for 1,156 yards and 19 touchdowns for Sun Valley High School (Monroe, NC) last year as a Sophomore.

247Sports ranks him as the #37 overall player in the 2021 recruiting class, the #5 wide receiver, and the #3 player overall in the state of North Carolina.

It’s worth noting that Blackwell played with UNC commit Sam Howell at Sun Valley, who will be a Freshman in Chapel Hill next year.

NC State offered on October 25th. He was on campus in Raleigh at the end of January, and took this picture with 2020 Wolfpack commit 4-star Porter Rooks, and 2020 4-Star target Mushin Muhammad III.

3-Star 2020 Tight End Matthew Hibner (6’4″/228) confirmed with me that he will be taking an unofficial visit to NC State next Wednesday.

Hibner picked up an offer from NC State back on May 14th. He also holds offers from Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt, and others. Virginia Tech offered on April 29th, and Vandy offered on May 7th. Hibner has visited both of them already.

He plays for Lake Braddock in Burke, Virginia, so the Hokies might be the team to beat. 247Sports ranks Hibner as the #19 player in Virginia in 2020.
