Commit Date: January 30, 2105

Recruiting Scene: NC State was one of the first major offers for McCloud and appeared to take a commanding lead for his commitment after he made a couple of visits to Raleigh during the season. A mid-November decision was pushed back however after South Carolina and others began to show serious interest. McCloud would ultimately make an official visit to Georgia Tech in late January. Afterwards he made his decision at a commitment ceremony and chose the Pack over Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and UCLA.

Why NC State? “I think that was the place where I felt most comfortable I’ve got a good relationship with all the coaches on the staff so I think that was one of the biggest things.”

Picked NC State Over: Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and UCLA

Scouting Report: McCloud is a long, rangy cornerback. He closes quickly on the football and tackles extremely well. McCloud is also very instinctive and shows good coverage awareness. He needs to continue to add weight and get stronger, but he's a prospect with a nice upside.- Scout.com
