NC State’s staff got some great news Wednesday afternoon when consensus four-star running back prospect Ricky Person committed to the Wolfpack. Person, a member of the 2018 class, plays for Heritage in Wake Forest, NC. Nice when a top-10 player in your state lives minutes away!
Any time there’s a commitment, you know what that means!
Person, who is 6’2, 202 pounds, holds scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Duke, Louisville, and Wake Forest. He is a consensus top-150 player in the country following his junior season; Rivals appears to be highest on him, ranking him No. 69 nationally.
A lot of great high school players play multiple positions for their teams, and Person is no exception—he also spent time at linebacker for Heritage. (Which is partly why some recruiting sites list him as an “athlete” rather than a running back.)
Person seems more likely to slot in at RB in Raleigh, especially since the Pack has several backs (plus JaySam) heading into either their junior or senior seasons.
