Another strong recruiting cycle is in the books for NC State.

NC State had a quiet signing day on Wednesday, putting the finishing touches on its 2019 recruiting class by making a few additional players official—most of the class elected to sign in December.

There may be a little bit of movement across the country this spring, but for the most part everybody is done with their 2019 classes. The Wolfpack’s haul ranks 29th in the country, according to 247Sports, giving State back-to-back top-30 recruiting classes. That’s how you take advantage of winning on the field and keep building a consistent winner.

Within the ACC, State’s class ranks fifth, behind Clemson, Florida State, Virginia Tech, and Miami, in that order. Yes, I know, shocking that Clemson once again leads the way. The Tigers signed 10 four-star prospects and one five-star kid in this cycle. They just keep on reloading.

On the bright side, NC State did significantly out-recruit most of the Atlantic Division—y’know, at least on paper. Syracuse, Wake Forest, Boston College, and Louisville each rank in the bottom five. Wake and Syracuse will continue to out-perform their recruiting rankings because they have good coaches and BC stays pesky, but Louisville is going to need some time to sort out its roster post-Petrino.
