ACC Recruiting: NC State Picks Up A Promising Big Man

State could use some more size too.

NC State got a promising young big man Sunday when Ernest Ross committed to the Pack.

Ross, a 6-9 forward out of Florida, is seen as a Top 40 prospect.

He also considered Buzz Willams and Texas A&M and L$U but ultimately went with State because he felt most comfortable with Kevin Keatts and his staff.

He’s the Pack’s second commitment for 2021, joining Terquavion Smith, a 6-3 guard from Farmville, NC, a city that’s probably experiencing an epidemic of stolen street signs right about now due to the popular video game of the same name.

Good thing there aren’t too many to steal: the population of Farmville is about 4,600.

Roberta Flack taught music there early in her career and it’s also the hometown of Blenda Gay, an NFL player who was murdered in his sleep by his wife. We’d never heard of this case. She slit his throat while he slept and said that he had abused her.
