Top-25 2024 SG Paul McNeil is Taking an Official Visit to NC State Next Weekend

Published

on

2024 4-Star Shooting Guard Paul McNeil (6’6″/185) will be taking an Official Visit to NC State next weekend.

ESPN ranks McNeil as the #17 overall player nationally in the 2024 recruiting class, and the #2 player in the state of North Carolina. I don’t understand how recruiting databases work, but at some point this year he will be a 5-star player according to ESPN as long as he stays in the Top-25.

McNeil plays for Richmond Senior in Rockingham, North Carolina.

This is huge for NC State to get a player of McNeil’s caliber to come in for an Official Visit this early in the process.

Whoops, posted this on the wrong article

Kevin Keatts on ACC teleconference states that Dusan Mahorcic is still out indefinitely and admits, “I’m not even sure if he’s going to return this year.”

What a turnaround! A couple of months ago it was hard to take recruiting too seriously, since we didn’t know if Keatts would be here. Now we’re looking a year ahead. And good players are giving us a look. The off season turnover, both players and assistants, this season will be extremely important. Even best possible case, we only lose Joiner, Mahorcic, and Smith – we still are going to have to replace the two most important players on the team from the portal. They run the offense, and provide points, assists, steals, and are the guys keeping our turnovers… Read more »

This year could really be a springboard to KK becoming a recruiting force. If anyone thinks that KK could have brought in Joiner, Clark, DJ, and Dusan if there was still the threat of a post season ban they are monumental idiots. It does make a big difference and thankfully is behind us. And we get that one scholly back next season which means we can really work the portal hard.

I feel pretty good that KK will find right pieces to add to a really solid core.

KK is out from under the NCAA cloud, and having a good looking team and season. That should attract even more talent. Lets get the snowball rolling!
