McCormack On Pack's Radar

One of N.C. State's early targets in the Class of 2018 is four-star center David McCormack.

One of N.C. State's early targets in the Class of 2018 is four-star center David McCormack.
At 6-foot-10, 285 pounds, McCormack is a massive post prospect with good hands and developing footwork as he recently took part in the NBPA Top 100 Camp. 
Schools from all over the country are beginning to call on the Norfolk, Virginia native and one of them has been NC State.
"NC State is involved. I'm actually going there for a team camp with my high school. I'll be visiting back on campus, and I think it should be a good, nostalgic feeling," McCormack said.
"Originally when I got offered, I didn't know much about them. But following them, I can see that they've done really well with two bigs. They were very strong in the post with [big men with] kind of the same body type as mine. And that's what I look at, as far as going to college."
Since Class of 2018 prospects can start hearing from coaches, a lot of schools called on McCormack the first few days.
"This week, I've been talking to Texas, Seton Hall, Duke, UNC, Arizona, Mizzou, Tulsa, a lot of different schools I've been in touch with,"McCormack said. "I've been building some great relationships with the coaches."
Even with all of the new attention coming from a lot of great programs, McCormack is still keeping everyone involved.
"I don't think any schools are favored. I keep them all in the same. I'm considering all my options and I'll go from there," McCormack said.
With McCormack also going to NC State, they'll be one of the few schools McCormack gets to see during the summer.
"All visits right now are up in the air. There's no defined visits that we've been talking about recently," McCormack said. 
During the spring, McCormack drew some national attention playing with Team Loaded Virginia in the adidas Gauntlet Series as he had some good events during the live period. McCormack is working on a few aspects of his game as he heads into summer.
"Just enhancing my game. I want to be able to use both hands around the rim. Be unstoppable in the post. I've been known to have really good footwork but there's always room for improvement. So I just keep working on my conditioning, strength and nutrition," McCormack said.
Conditioning is going to be a big factor for McCormack, since he is such a big player, but he's trying to work to get up and down the floor.
"It's improving, but like I said, there's always room for improvement," McCormack said. "I'm still working on it, whether it's distance running or short bursts running. But I want it to be one of my best tools on the court."
During the NBPA Top 100 Camp, McCormack sat out the final few days with a sprain as he's been enjoying his camp experience and working with the coaches.

"I've been out with an injury. I had a high sprain the second game but other than that, the camp has been a great experience. I've learned a lot,"McCormack said. "I had individual time with certain coaches just with counter moves, basic post moves and things that will open me up in the post. But, overall, I think it really helped my game."

Currently ranked as the No. 41 overall prospect in Scout.com's rankings, McCormack is going to be a player to track this July.
