It’s rare for a Junior to take an Official Visit, so Wheeler’s interest in NC State must be high.
Rivals ranks Wheeler as the #56 overall player in the 2021 recruiting class, and the #9 Center. 247Sports ranks him as the #3 player in the state of Virginia. Wheeler plays for John Marshall in Richmond.
Every single member of the NC State coaching staff has connections to the state of Virginia. Head Coach Kevin Keatts coached at Hargrave Military Academy for over a decade, and is a native of Lynchburg. Assistant Coach James Johnson is a native of Powhatan, Virginia, and coached at Longwood College, Hargrave Military Academy, George Mason and Virginia Tech, which are all in the Commonwealth. Assistant Takayo Siddle played for, and served as a coach with Keatts at Hargrave. Assistant Roy Roberson coached 20+ years in the state of Virginia.
NC State offered Wheeler on August 20th last year after a visit. The coaches have been in to watch him on numerous occasions since then.
Wheeler also holds offers from Georgetown, Wake Forest, VCU, Old Dominion and Hampton.
