Farrar recently broke into the rankings over at 247Sports, as a 3-Star prospect, and the #166 player in the 2020 recruiting class. He plays for Apex Friendship (Apex, NC), and committed to run with the Pack on August 7th.

3-Star 2021 Shooting guard Terquavian Smith (6’3″/180), the only other current Wolfpack commit will be joining Farrar. Smith plays for Farmville (Farmville, NC), and committed to NC State on February 18th.

Four other extremely talented 2021 prospects will be on an unofficial visit with Smith.

5-Star Small Forward Quincy Allen (6’7″/180) received an offer from NC State on June 16th. 247Sports ranks him as the #19 overall player (Composite) in the 2021 recruiting class, the #6 Small Forward, and the #1 player in Washington D.C.

4-Star Small Forward Dontrez Styles (6’6″/199) is ranked as the #91 overall player in the 2021 class by Rivals. NC State offered Styles on July 16th. The standout from Kinston, North Carolina also holds offers from Georgetown, Maryland, Mississippi, Pitt, Clemson, St. John’s, VCU and others.

4-Star Point Guard Carter Whitt picked up an offer from NC State after the John Wall Holiday Invitational on December 31st.

Rivals ranks him as the #44 player in the 2021 class, and 247Sports ranks him as the #8 point guard and #2 player in the state of North Carolina. It was previously reported that Whitt would be taking his first official visit to Boston College this weekend, but it looks like plans may have changed.
