NC State has landed a commitment from Mechanicsville (VA) cornerback J.J. Givens. The three-star cornerback committed to NC Sttae head coach Dave Doeren during an in-home visit.
Givens confirmed the commitment a few minutes ago.
"I actually am still with coach Doeren and coach Barlow for our in-home visit, but I did commit," he said. "I just knew that it is the place for me. It's the place I can develop as a man and football player to the best of my ability. There is no need to prolong the decision. It's where I need to be."
Givens committed to South Carolina early in the process before opening back up his recruitment. He held offers from over 30 programs including: NC State, Maryland, Clemson, Michigan State, Louisville, Penn State, and Oklahoma among others before narrowing his focus to NC State and Maryland.
He visited NC State this past weekend and was scheduled to visit Maryland this upcoming weekend, but he stated he has canceled that visit.
The 6-foot-2, 170-pound is currently rated the No. 52 cornerback in the country by Scout.com. He is being recruited to play cornerback at NC State.
Pack Pride will have more from Givens on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
