Dave Doeren and NC State football continue to clean up on the recruiting trail. The latest addition is another in-state commitment: 4-star cornerback Shyheim Battle. A product of Rocky Mount, NC, Battle is a 6-foot-2 defensive back who had offers from Clemson, Ohio State, Tennessee — among others.
Battle is the 20th commit of NC State’s 2019 class, which currently ranks top 20 nationally, according to 247 Sports.
Of those 20 commits, 16 hail from the state of North Carolina, including multiple top-20 prospects: Savion Jackson, Joshua Harris and CJ Clark.
