NC State football recruiting class of 2024 updated hot board: Corners

NC State football recruiting has one of its best defensive backs class in 2023. The Wolfpack is hoping to repeat that success this cycle.

Here is a rundown of known offers thus far out towards corners and nickels on the NC State football recruiting board in the 2024 class.

On3 Industry three-star Jivan Baly

On3 NIL Valuation: $16K

High School NIL ranking: 1,906

On3 RPM: NC State – 95.7%; Georgia Tech – 1.2%

The skinny: Jivan Baly released in March a top eight of Florida State, Georgia Tech, KentuckyLouisvilleMiamiMissouriNC State and Texas A&M. He has also set up an official visit for NC State on June 23, which will be his fourth trip to Raleigh. His most recent visit was in April for a spring practice.

Baly (6-foot, 170 pounds) has over 20 Power Five offers after making 36 tackles (3 for loss) and 2 interceptions in 11 games as a junior.

On3 Industry four-star Cai Bates

Orlando (Fla.) Edgewater

On3 Industry ranking: No. 170 recruit nationally, No. 19 cornerback in country and No. 27 player in Georgia

High School NIL ranking: 270

On3 RPM: Kentucky – 49.1%; Central Florida – 9.3%; Florida – 7.9%; Miami – 6.6%

The skinny: NC State gave Cai Bates an offer in February, but the 6-foot-1.5, 177-pounder is a national recruitment and thus far has shown limited interest in the Wolfpack.

Portsmouth (Va) St. Michael

On3 Industry ranking: No. 62 cornerback in country and No. 12 player in Virginia

On3 NIL Valuation: $29K

The skinny: Jameer Grimsley (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) added an offer from NC State in March, but the Wolfpack is part of a large group of growing offers for Grimsley. He did take a visit to Raleigh on March 31, but Grimsley’s official visit plans highlight where his recruitment is likely headed.
