NCAA Extends Recruiting Dead Period Through May 31

Published

on

Due to Covid-19, the NCAA has decided to extend the Division-I Recruiting Dead Period to May 31st, meaning that players are not permitted to take official or unofficial visits to schools, and college coaches aren’t allowed to visit the prospects.

This doesn’t mean that recruiting is on pause. Recruiting may have become more difficult, but coaches are still allowed to recruit.

College Coaches will have to push themselves to be even more creative with their ability to use with text, telephone, digital platforms and social media.

4-Star FSU DL Keith Sampson Set to Take Official Visit to NC State on September 10th

Published

on

On September 10th, 4-Star 2023 Florida State Verbal Commit Defensive Tackle Keith Sampson (6’3″/285) will be taking an Official Visit to NC State. Sampson committed to play for the Seminoles back on March 5th of this year. Earlier this summer, as a FSU commit, Sampson also took an Official Visit to UNC in June. The only other Official Visit he has on the books is one to Florida State on October 28th.

The New Bern High School standout’s offer sheet is quite impressive: FSU, NC State, UNC, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and others.

One of the things that might be keeping NC State in contention with the Seminole commit is his friendship with Wolfpack commit Javonte Vereen, who is a 4-star Tight End out of Havelock.

247Sports ranks Sampson as the #145 overall player in the 2023 recruiting class, and the #4 player in the state of North Carolina.

FSU offered Sampson on May 17th last year, and NC State followed up with one of their own a day later.

NC State Offers 2 Twin 4-Star UCF LB Commits

Published

on

In a matter of 3 days, NC State has offered scholarships to 4 linebackers who are already committed to other schools. First, it was Texas Tech commit Miquel Dingle Jr. on Saturday. Next, it was Vanderbilt commit Kelvon McBride yesterday afternoon. Then, last night the Wolfpack offered the Harris brothers, who are twins that both play linebacker at Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs, Florida.

Andrew and Michael are both 4-star prospects that committed to UCF on July 6th this summer. Both players rank in the Top-25o overall nationally, with 247Sports ranking Andrew 135th and Michael 168th.

If NC State could pull off the feat and flip the Harris brothers, leaving their home state, they will have done what the following teams on their offer sheets couldn’t: Texas A&M, Tennessee, Auburn, Michigan St., Michigan, Mississippi St., Maryland, Penn St., Pitt and others.

The Harris brothers have only taken 2 of their official visits thus far, to Maryland and Michigan State.
