Breon Pass commits, NC State adds athletic combo guard

Breon Pass will stay in-state: the 3-star guard from Reidsville commits to NC State.

The 6-foot, 175-pound Pass, one of the top guards in the 2021 recruiting class, picked NC State over Georgia Tech, East Carolina and Providence. 247 Sports ranks Pass as the No. 6 overall prospect in North Carolina and the No. 12 combo guard in 2021.

During his prep career, Pass built a profile as a strong football prospect, too; 247 Sports has Pass slotted as a top-30 football prospect in North Carolina. Pass initially considered working as a dual-sport athlete in college; however, Pass has decided instead to focus on basketball, specifically.

Early in the recruiting process, NC State coaches Kevin Keatts and James Johnson developed a relationship with Pass.

NC State now has a three-man 2021 class. That started 4-star guard Terquavion Smith’s commitment back in Feb. 2019; next up was 4-star power forward Ernest Ross, a top-50 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, in April 2020.
