PI EXCLUSIVE: 4-Star WR Dyzier Carter Breaks Down Recent Visit to NC State

Published

on

4-star 2026 Wide Receiver Dyzier Carter (5’10″/180) took an unofficial visit to NC State this past Friday. I caught up with him to get his take on the visit.

When did NC State start recruiting you and what coach is primarily recruiting you?

To be honest, no one was really recruiting me to my knowledge. I reached out to them about their Spring practice schedule. It’s a school I’ve been interested in.

What was your visit like? What did you learn? What did you enjoy?

I really enjoyed the visit. I was able to tour the facility, sit in on a position meeting, and watch an up-tempo practice. I learned that the program is a tight knit family and a lot of the staff members are graduates from the school.

If you got to watch practice, what were your thoughts on how the Wolfpack looked? Did any players standout?

While watching practice, I noticed that #10 Kevin “KC” Concepcion reminded me of myself. I feel like that’s how I play in the slot position.

What were the conversations like with the coaches?

I was able to speak with Coach Doeren. He seemed to be a really good coach, that’s passionate about the program. I met with Coach Phillips in his office after practice. He definitely keeps it real and doesn’t sugarcoat anything. He’s about building relationships and the receivers that he hand picks are fit for his position room. I walked out of his office after our conversation with a lot of respect for him.

Where does NC State stand in your recruitment? Which schools are recruiting you the hardest?

My recruiting journey is still early and I’m just getting a feel for schools that are interested in me and that I am interested in.
