N.C. State lands four-star 2018 big man Ian Steere


N.C. State added a promising piece to its future on Friday as four-star Class of 2018 big man Ian Steere pledged to the Wolfpack.

The 6-foot-9 Steere was previously committed to Creighton, but he opted out of the commitment recently to play closer to his native North Carolina. Committing to N.C. State makes sense for Steere as the Wolfpack are a local option that also happen to have Steere’s high school teammate, Immanuel Bates, committed as well.

An emerging inside presence on both ends of the floor, Steere is a plus athlete who has the size to play with anyone in the ACC.

Regarded as the No. 104 overall big man in the Class of 2018, Steere joins Bates, another four-star prospect, in N.C. State’s Class of 2018 recruiting haul. Considering that new head coach Kevin Keatts also has Devon Daniels and C.J. Bryce sitting out a transfer year during 2017-18 and he’ll have four new talented players at his disposal for next season.
