Following win over UNC, NC State picks up in-state commitment

It’s been a big weekend for NC State and Sunday was a huge day for the Wolfpack.

Just hours after NC State beat North Carolina to give the Tar Heels their fifth loss in the last six games, the Wolfpack picked up a big recruit. Four-star in-state shooting guard Paul McNeil pledged his commitment to the Wolfpack after being on a visit.

The Rockingham, North Carolina, native was on a visit to NC State and saw enough to pick the Wolfpack. McNeil had 12 offers, including from Clemson, Florida State, Indiana and Miami. But in the end, he picked NC State and it’s a big win for Kevin Keatts.

The Wolfpack are a rising program thanks to the guard play of Terquavion Smith and Jarkel Joiner. Landing a player like McNeil will help fill the void the next few years as he’s a legit scorer.

McNeil is ranked No. 32 overall, the No. 7 shooting guard and No. 4 player in the state of North Carolina in the 247Sports recruiting rankings for the 2024 class.
