Initially a Providence commit, 4-star combo guard Jayden Epps quickly became a top target after re-opening his recruitment. 247 Sports ranks Epps — who plays his prep ball for Suffolk (Va.) King’s Fork — the No. 60 prospect in the 2022 class.
Epps committed to Providence in March 2021; however, two months later he decommitted. In the coming weeks, the 6-foot-2 Epps received offers from NC State, Illinois, Kansas and UConn.
During the month of June, Epps will take several official visits; that process started this weekend at NC State.

The visit to Raleigh is the first of three officials on the docket this month for Epps, who will also visit UConn (June 21) and Kansas (June 28.)
Currently, NC State has no commitments in its 2022 recruiting class.
Earlier this offseason, the Wolfpack added Providence transfer forward Greg Gantt to their roster. Gantt played at Providence for two seasons (2019-21).
Other ACC programs, like Pitt and UNC, have also contacted Epps.
