NC State Football Recruiting Update – 8/7/19

 

Transferring Out:

Senior S Tim Kidd-Glass has announced that he will be transferring out of State.  This speaks volumes to me about how much defensive back recruiting has improved in the last several years. This will not affect 2020 recruiting class numbers at all because he was expected to graduate.

 

Spots Remaining:

Without more attrition, it looks like 4-5 more prospects will be taken. Preference will go to defense: linebacker, secondary, possibly another defensive lineman.  My guess would be 1-2 linebackers, 1 Cornerback, 1 Safety, and 1 Defensive Tackle/Defensive End type prospect. NC State might take another offensive lineman, if they are the best possible prospect left on the board, but I would guess the Wolfpack would only do that if a current lineman commit in the program decides to leave before National Signing Day.

 

Devon Beatty Update:

Target 4* Linebacker Devon Betty (St. Thomas Aquinas HS – Fort Lauderdale, Florida) will be officially visiting on September 6th. He could play a wide variety of positions, depending on how much he grows. He has very good athleticism and pass rushing skills.

 

Latest Recruiting Graphics:

Official offers went out to 2020 kids on August 1st. Here’s a link to a tweet from Target 4* LB Devon Betty:

 

Commitment:

Target JUCO 3* Defensive End Pheldarius Payne has committed. He is rated the #2 JUCO DE in the country by 24/7 sports and Scout.

A lot of analysts are commenting about how fast NC State got onto Payne and how they beat a lot of bigger schools to the punch by getting him to commit so early.

I have a feeling he is going to be a big time player, similar to Larrell Murchison.

 

Highlights:

The Hot 10:

The last 10 prospects believed to be on NC State’s board (at this point) that they have a decent chance with are:

3* S Tyler Jones

3* CB Joshua Pierre Louis

3* OT Anthony Carter Jr.

4* LB Devon Betty

4* DE Jacolbe Cowan

3* DE Sean Martin (recently decommitted from UNC)

3* WR Antonio Barber

3* WR Jhari Patterson

3* LB Jamari Stewart

3* DE Zuriah Fisher

 

Committed Elsewhere:

Target 4* Defensive Tackle Kendrick Bingley Jones has committed to UNC. Reportedly, he has some academic issues which need to be addressed before he will be eligible.

Target 4* Safety Jaquarious Conley is also rumored to be committing to UNC soon. NC State did not make his top 4 schools and reportedly he also has some academic issues to correct.
