Micah Crowell commits; NC State adds 2nd 4-star to 2021 class

What started slow has started to gather momentum. On Tuesday, NC State landed a commitment from 4-star wide receiver Micah Crowell.

An in-state recruit, the 6-foot-2 Crowell plays his prep ball for Kernersville (NC) East Forsyth. Crowell was one of the top targets on NC State’s board; he picked the Wolfpack over dozens of competing offers. Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Penn State, Wisconsin and Michigan all made offers.

Ultimately, Crowell picked NC State over Wake Forest.

Crowell’s recruitment to NC State was led by Charley Wiles (offensive line) and George McDonald. As Crowell told Pack Pride, McDonald played a significant role in his decision.

With Crowell and the commitment of 4-star quarterback Aaron McLaughlin, NC State may have its 1-2 combination of the future.

While NC State’s 2021 class started (somewhat) sluggishly, Dave Doeren and the Wolfpack have made moves over the last two months. The class now sits at eight commitments; Crowell is the fourth pledge since the calendar flipped to May.

Crowell joins McLaughlin atop NC State’s commitment list. 247 Sports ranks as the No. 52 wide receiver in the 2021 class. NC State now has five in-state commitments for 2021, too.
