Jonathan Paylor, one of the top prospects in the 2024 recruiting class, took an unofficial visit to NC State this Friday (June 17).
The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Paylor checks in as the No. 2 prospect for the state of North Carolina in the 2024 class. A 5-star prospect, 247 Sports ranks Paylor as a Top 20 prospect in the cycle.

Paylor, who plays his prep ball for Burlington (NC) Cummings High, is a multi-sport star. He also runs track. Paylor. is one of the most sought-after prospects in the Southeast. As it stands now, Clemson is making a strong push for Paylor; however, NC State is right in the mix, too. In fact, with wide receivers coach Joker Phillips leading Paylor’s recruitment, On3 has NC State as a slight favorite to land Paylor.
“Everything about NC State is amazing.”

North Carolina, Ohio State and South Carolina will all make pushes as well.
Paylor’s trip to Raleigh comes during a busy recruiting week for Dave Doeren and the Wolfpack. Baylor still has two seasons of high school football left. Currently, NC State has yet to land a 2024 commitment. Obviously, it’s very early in that process.
