NC State picked up another addition to its 2017 recruiting class this weekend when Trinity-Pawling (NY) School defensive end Ibrahim Kante verbally committed to the Wolfpack on an official visit.
Kante was limited by injury during his senior season which probably limited his recruiting stock to some degree. He holds offers from Temple and UConn, among others—it’s not an impressive offer sheet. If Dave Doeren and Ryan Nielsen (DL coach) like him enough to give him an offer, though, that’s good enough for me.
Kante is listed at 6’5 and about 240 pounds, so he has some growing to do in the weight room, but no doubt there is a lot of potential. He is unranked by 247Sports and is a two-star prospect according to Rivals. Dude is a project for sure, but he has been good enough to draw other high-major interest (BC, Rutgers) in his own back yard.
NC State now has added four commitments in the last week.
