There’s a lot happening in regards to NC State Men’s Basketball recruiting, so I thought I’d just throw a buffet line of info in one piece to knock it out.
Wolfpack head coach Kevin Keatts was in Asheville yesterday to check out 2023 4-Star Shooting Guard Silas Demary Jr., 2024 4- Star Shooting Guard Rakease Passmore and 2024 5-Star Small Forward Trentyn Flowers at Combine Academy.
NC State’s Kevin Keatts and Wake Forest’s Steve Forbes were in this afternoon for Combine’s Silas Demary Jr, Rakease Passmore, and Trentyn Flowers, their coach told @Stockrisers. VCU’s Mike Rhoades and an assistant among those also in for Demary Jr.

2024 NC State Commit Trey Parker Finishes 2nd in OTE Dunk Contest
Dunk contests don’t really mean anything, but Trey Parker, NC State’s 2024 shooting guard commit makes them pretty entertaining.
Just last week he finished 2nd in the OTE Dunk Contest (video above), after winning it last year with this dunk over two 7-footers.

Parker was supposed to be a freshman this year at NC State, but he reclassified into the 2024 class, meaning if all goes according to plan, he’ll be here next year.
And if you think this kid is just about dunking, then you missed his performance last year against the #1 ranked PG Robert Dillingham, where he dropped 18 pts and dished out 4 assists in the win. We had an in-depth write-up on the game right after it happened. Check it out.
While the focus should be on this years team, it’s never too early to get excited about a commit that’s putting together highlight reels like this.
NC State Hosted 3 Basketball Recruits this Past Weekend
The NC State Men’s Basketball team hosted 3 recruits this past weekend: 4-Star 2025 Point Guard Jordan Lowery, 4-Star 2025 Small Forward AJ White and 3-Star 2024 Center Chol Machot.
I confirmed with all three players that they were on NC State’s campus for an unofficial visit.
On September 12, NC State offered 4-Star 2025 Point Guard Jordan Lowery (6’1″/175) out of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He already holds offers from TCU, SMU, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, St. Louis, Wichita St, ECU and Virginia Tech. Rivals ranks Lowery as the #110 overall player nationally, and ON3 ranks him as the #9 player in the state of North Carolina. Lowery was also in for an unofficial visit to NC State earlier in September as well.
The Wolfpack coaches were in to visit 4-Star 2025 Small Forward AJ White (6’8″/180) out of Charlotte, North Carolina in the middle of September. Rivals ranks White as the #28 overall player nationally in 2025, and he is the consensus #1 player in the state. White holds offers from NC State, South Carolina, Cincy, Texas, Syracuse, Georgia, Texas A&M, Wake Forest, Mississippi St., LSU, FSU, Illinois, Virginia Tech, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgetown, Ohio St. and others.
Kendre Harrison Breaks Down What it Means to be Offered by NC State in 2 Sports
NC State is trying to reel in a Legacy Recruit in 2026 Tight End/Power Forward Kendre Harrison. Harrison is the nephew of former Wolfpack guard, C.C. Harrison.
Harrison is a unicorn. The young sensation out of Reidsville High School (Reidsville, NC), is a 4-star prospect in both football and basketball. In fact, he’s on track to be a 5-star prospect in both sports, which is unheard of.
In regards to football, Harrison is the #5 overall player nationally in the 2026 class according to 247Sports, and the #1 player in the state of North Carolina (Reidsville High School). In basketball, he ranks 20th overall nationally according to ESPN, the #5 Power Forward, and the #1 player in the state of North Carolina.
The #1 player in the state of North Carolina in both sports in 2026.
NC State offered him in football back in January, and he was offered by the basketball team back on September 16th.
I checked in with Harrison to see what it meant to him to be offered in both football and basketball by NC State, and what it was like to visit a few weeks back for the VMI game and watch the basketball team practice.
“It means a lot to be offered in both sports, knowing I can make a difference in the program.”
Harrison made it clear that he intends to play both sports at the next level. He doesn’t find it to be a balancing act at all, playing both basketball and football.
I just have to remember how bad I want it and what my end goal is. I have to remember that I’m doing this for my mom and family.
Harrison enjoyed every aspect of his time on NC State’s campus a few weeks back.
It was a great experience. I loved how the coaches coached basketball and football. I just loved everything about the visit.
Uncle C.C. is a hero of Kendre’s, and he has learned so much from him, on the court, and off the court.
He has taught me a lot of things about basketball and outside of basketball, especially throughout my recruitment process.
NC State Offers 4-Star 2026 SF Cole Cloer
NC State offered 4-Star Small Forward Cole Cloer (6’6″175) earlier this week.
247Sports ranks Cloer as the #24 overall player nationally in the 2026 recruiting class, the #10 Small Forward and the #1 player in the state of North Carolina. Cloer plays for Orange High School, which is right down the road, in Hillsborough, North Carolina.
Cloer also holds offers from Wake Forest, Mississippi St, App St, High Point and Iowa.
Last season, Cloer averaged 20.1 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals per game for Orange.
