NC State Football Recruiting Update – September 12, 2019

 

Recent Commitment: 3* LB Devon Betty committed to State while on his official visit for the Western Carolina game. Betty is being recruited to play the new BUC (outside linebacker) position in the new 3-3-5 defensive scheme. Betty was injured during part of his junior season, which cut into some of his production, and probably limited him from explosive recruitment, but he still has a very, very high ceiling. Betty moved from Miramar HS to St. Thomas Aquinas after last season, and being around more marquee talent and better coaching will help him to arrive in Raleigh in great shape. Betty officially runs a 4.8 40 as measured at the Opening Combine in the Spring, but I think by the time he hits the field with us he will more like a 4.65 guy (especially if he can redshirt and get with Thunder Dan for a season).

Highlights of Betty:

 

Recent Decommit: Target 3* LB Jayland Parker has de-committed from Colorado. This was suspected for quite a while. He has tentatively booked an official visit to Raleigh for the Ball State game on 9/21. Parker is rated as high as the #23 inside linebacker in the country on 24/7 sports. Parker has been measured at 6’2″, 195 with a 4.69 40.  At this point, I would think that Parker is definitely a take for State.

Highlights of Parker:

 

Commitment Statistics Report from Week 3:

WR Porter Rooks – 3 catches for 152 yards and 3 Touchdowns in a 63-3 win. Rooks only played in the first half.

WR Stephen Gosnell – 3 Touchdowns (2 Catching, 1 Rushing)  in a 65-0 win.  4 catches for 104 yards.  East Surry won 65-0. East Surry is now 3-0 this season.

QB Ben Finley – 17 of 22 with 180 yards and 2 Touchdowns, 3 carries for 21 yards in a 28-26 victory. Finley left the game with an injury.

ATH Devan Boykin – Lost to Northern Guilford 24-14. Boykin had a 41 yard reception for a Touchdown in the 4th quarter. Boykin had 2 catches for 49 yards, two punts for 50 yards, 4 tackles and 1 Tackle for Loss

TE Ezemdi Udoh – 2 catches for 17 yards in a 21-10 loss to Jack Britt HS.

CB Aydan White – Christ School won 47-0. No Stats for him for the second game, but he did have four Touchdowns in their first game of the season.

DT Jaylen Smith – 2 tackles in a 50-33 loss to Rocky Mount HS.

S Nehki Meredith – No stats available but Bishop Sullivan won 31-16 over Woodberry Forest.

OG Sean Hill – 6 knockdown blocks in a 35-21 loss. Hill graded out at a 88% in the game.

OC Ethan Lane – 46-10 win. No stats available.

OT Patrick Matan – 35-21 win at Don Bosco Prep. Gonzaga HS is rated the #10 program in the country on Maxpreps.com

DT Pheldarius Payne – 2 tackles including 1 Tackle for Loss in a 55-0 win over Wagner College

DT Davin Vann – 10 tackles, 3 solo tackles, 2 sacks, one forced fumble in a 31-28 win.

OT Jonathan Adorno – 49-7 win at East Wake HS

LB Devon Betty – Bye last week, but 5 tackles in the first game of the season

OT Austin Blaske – Bye last week, but has 17 knockdowns and 3 tackles in 2 games

** Quite a few recruits had their Friday night games cancelled due to bad weather (Hurricane Florian).

 

Keep An Eye On…

3* DB Joshua Pierre Louis – A smaller frame DB who can absolutely fly in the open field. He reminds me a lot of Rashard Smith with his playmaking abilities. Rumor has it that he is going to try to officially visit State in the next few weeks. I think when we get him on campus, he will commit.

3* OL Anthony Carter – I think we will take one more offensive lineman in this class. It is no secret that Carter really likes State. He comes from a talent rich area and has future Offensive Tackle written all over him with his frame. I think we will also try to get him at State for an official visit soon.

3* LB Jayland Parker – I think we have a great chance of landing him.

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

Published

on

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.

Potential Flips

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

Published

on

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.
