He's good enough to be drafted but not a #1 pick like everyone here keeps saying

he's a 3* and had offers from Arizona State, Arizona, Iowa State, and Colorado State...would assume he was gonna pick up more offers if he hadn't committed this early (and will still pick up offers because that's just how recruiting works). i don't know a ton about him...but i don't think this is a "let's offer him since he's Ryan Finley's brother" situation

i actually think physical attributes wise finleys little bro looks better than him

but you cant really measure whether the guy is a football autist who will spend thousands of hours studying the game from high school highlights

i'm optimistic the QB position will be solid going forward...between McKay, Leary, Hockman, and now Finley (2020) i feel confident somebody will emerge as a legit QB. also i feel confident somebody will transfer...but as long as we have a good QB then that's not a big deal.

It isn't a joke.

Mike Glennon was way better than Sean Glennon. I hope baby Finley will be way better than Ryan Finley. It's simple and I'm sorry you don't understand.

Not surprisingly but UNC is trying to get in on a few of our commits...CJ Clark, Savion Jackson, Josh Harris. Maybe others. Sounds like we’re really solid with everybody, but Clark may be a bit of a worry since he was high on UNC earlier in his recruitment. I think all those guys expect to enroll early, so Mack and UNC don’t have much time.

Clark is the only worry because the UNC influence in his family is strong. The main reason it was such a surprise when he committed to us. Hes supposed to be at the game today. If hes not...thats gonna ramp up the worry for many. I just dont see him flipping. Hes supposedly very close with multiple members of pack 19

Mack wasting his time with Harris and Jackson.

UNC fans were holding out hope for Clark and Miller, because they believed they finished 2nd for both of them. The funny thing is, neither of them said UNC finished 2nd after their announcements, all had them 3rd or lower on their lists.

Clark should be on campus today and I believe he's set to be an early enrollee. Signing day is 3 weeks away, honestly not sure Mack will have time to build a relationship and win these guys over.

Problem with this "Mack is going to come in and save our recruiting class", is the timing window is just small. Mack has reportedly run off 4 commits(most agree the players were borderline P5 takes) but with 3 weeks to go, no DC, no OC, I just don't know how they expect to flip enough guys to fill up an entire class.

I expect you'll see Mack focusing on JUCO and post-grad options in the 2019 class and then he'll try to re-establish their in-state recruiting in 2020. If any of our kids don't sign early, I'd be a little bit concerned.

Seems like Triston Miller (Ledford leaving) and Jamious Griffin (GT coach change, generally blowing up) could be battles to keep committed.

Losing Griffin would obviously suck, but I think the GT stuff is overblown. Dude has zero relationship with that coaching staff. Honestly I'd be more worried about VT or possibly some powerhouse school coming in late. I'm sure Kitchings and Doeren have him as their top priority though.

VT offered him in May, what's changed?

As for GT, there probably isn't much "stuff" there yet, but his brother plays there and he apparently didn't consider them only bc of triple option. He isn't signing next week so GT has a few months to build those relationships.

Who knows, of course, just posting what counts as news in the recruiting world when we're only taking a few more players.

2019 3* qb Ty Evans flips from CU to commit to State. #1 player in Colorado, top 20 pro qb.

^^he has a brother at VT. If he wants to play with family I'd be a lot more worried about the guys who've been recruiting him for a long time than the new guys.

Quote :
"According to a text from Todd Evans, Doeren turned down offers from Tennessee and Ole Miss last year to stay at NC State, and plans to stay until his sons, who are entering high school, graduate.

"It really just came down the that stability at NC state," Ty Evans said. "Coach Doeren has a long contract and he’s building a lake house out there which is a great sign that he’s not going anywhere. He wants to win championships there and I think that’s someone I can play under.""

It guess that's proof that Ledford is gone, since it hasn't been announced

Ledford is 100% gone, regardless of announcement, as is our graphics/social media guy Tyler McEntire. Both formerly of App State and now re-joining the band at App State.

Miller was the most likely flip, as he essentially said he only committed to us because of his relationship with Ledford. So this was expected, I'd expect him to OV UL in the next week or so and pull the trigger.

Griffin is saying in every way he can that he is 100% committed to NC State and his family seems to love the school as well, that being said, he picked up a 4th star and he's talking about taking OV's to a couple of schools(Auburn and I think Miami). The GT and VT stuff is overblown. He could have picked them months ago and didn't. Obviously GT switching offenses has to help, but at the same time, no reason to think they're even involved at this point. Problem with Griffin is that he isn't likely to sign next week, so you're looking at 2-3 months of teams pursuing him and I believe he has 4 OV's left to take.

Yeah any time the primary recruiter leaves for another job, those guys are the ones you have to worry about leaving. It sucks, but it happens.

Also was the graphics guy the one who sent the NC STATE NEEDS = BALLERS letters? If so, big big loss.

Miller taking visits to UL, FSU and South Carolina. Only reason dude was coming here was ledford. Peace out brother...prolly a better idea to choose a school that you are gonna be comfortable at for 4-5 years than chase a position coach.

Griffin says his commitment is "solid as a diamond" but isnt signing on the 19th and plans to take more visits, auburn specifically. Another case of an 18 year old having no idea what the hell is even coming out of his mouth

Seems like only flip we're looking at from Ledford leaving is Miller, so that's good.

Miller visiting UNC, USC, and potentially FSU and UL. Hoping he ends up at USC, just to have him out of the ACC and don't want to hear the UNC fans gloating about flipping him and don't want Ledford to get him haha.

^^Na that was one of our coaches. McEntire is the guy that did all of the recruiting graphics from twitter, where they had the recruits on the covers of magazines, did the GoT NC State mash ups, the NC State/Venom graphic, etc. He was actually doing a really good job and all of the recruits were posting his graphics all over social media talking about how much they liked them. Even the guys we didn't land posted some of the graphics.

Quote :
"Evans led Palmer Ridge to 2 consecutive 3A state championships, and was the Gatorade Player of the Year in Colorado as a Junior. He also was one of the 12 quarterbacks that made it to the prestigious Elite 11 Camp this summer. As a Senior, Evans threw for 2,665 yards and 33 touchdowns (14 interceptions). He also rushed for 355 yards and 11 touchdowns.

247Sports ranks Evans as the #11 Pro Style Quarterback in the 2019 class, and Rivals ranks him as the #1 player in the state of Colorado. He chose to run with the Wolfpack over offers from Alabama, Michigan, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Ole Miss and others."

Red Light Is On.

Twitter showed signs it was Porter Rooks(4* WR and #1 player in NC per Rivals) but they got removed. Maybe it'll pop back up later.
