4-Star SF Dennis Parker II Signs National Letter of Intent to Play Basketball at NC State!

Published

on

In a bit of big news today, 2023 4-Star Small Forward Dennis Parker II (6’7″/175) signed his National Letter of Intent to play basketball at NC State next year.

Parker verbally committed to NC State on October 26th, so what makes this a big deal? Well, shortly after verbally committing, Parker informed Joe Tipton of ON3 that he was planning on waiting to sign until the Spring. Nothing of this was surprising, because Parker probably wanted to make sure that the Coach that recruited him would be here when he arrives on campus.

Well, I’m not sure what Kevin Keatts said to comfort Parker, but it did the trick.

Parker is currently the Wolfpack’s lone commitment in the 2023 recruiting class.

ON3 ranks Parker as the #78 overall player nationally in the 2023 recruiting class, and the #2 player in the state of Virginia, playing for John Marshall in Richmond.

Yes, Someone like Ty-Laur Johnson on Saturday for starters. (Memphis was leading but they got two other commitments last week)

Some kids might feel pressured to sign before transfer season starts and slot get filled up.

This seems like a high quality commitment. Nice to see KK is still working to bring in true freshman.
