3-star safety Jakeen Harris commits to NC State, Georgia continues to be a priority

On Tuesday evening, NC State football landed its 10th commitment of the 2019 recruiting class: 3-star safety Jakeen Harris.

Those 10 commitments hail from two states: North Carolina and Georgia. The class, which ranks 29th nationally according to 247 Sports, features seven in-state commitments; the other three, including Harris, are from Georgia. It’s the clear: the Pack’s prioritizing recruiting local.

Harris and 3-star offensive guard Dylan McMahon both play prep ball in Savannah. NC State is now one of five ACC teams with at least 10 2019 commitments.

According to Backing The Pack, Harris recorded 100-plus tackles and snagged five interceptions as a junior in 2017.
