Seventeen players signed their letters of intent to play football at NC State on Wednesday, and that accounts for everybody currently committed to the Wolfpack for 2020. State could still add to this bunch between today and February.

The Wolfpack did suffer another defection here at the end, as offensive lineman Austin Blaske flipped from State to Georgia. Recruiting boards tend to shuffle right around signing day, and whatever happened with UGA led to them extending Blaske a late offer. Blaske is from Georgia. Alas, what can ya do.

Players with an asterisk by their name intend to enroll in January, and that includes quarterback Ben Finley, who is coming to save us all!!!!!! Um, y’know, no pressure or what have you.

Dave Doeren met with the media to discuss the class and you can listen to his remarks here.

The recruiting class ranks 45th in the 247 Composite after Blaske’s departure, and eighth within the ACC. That’s a bit lower in the national rankings than State’s been over the last couple years, but in terms of average prospect rating, this group is comparable to those.
