Head Coach Kevin Keatts and the North Carolina State Wolfpack have landed the commitment of 2023 top ten recruit and top-rated point guard Robert Dillingham. He is the second-highest-rated recruit in the modern era to commit to North Carolina State Wolfpack behind only Dennis Smith Jr. Dillingham committed to the North Carolina State Wolfpack over the Kentucky Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks, LSU Tigers, and Memphis Tigers. The top 2023 point guard is a legitimate “one and done” talent and will likely head straight to the NBA Draft after a year.

Robert Dillingham is Kevin Keatts’ highest ranked commitment since being named the head coach at NC State in 2017.
He is tied for the Wolfpack’s second highest ranked commitment in the modern recruiting era with CJ Leslie.

Robert Dillingham made news earlier in the year when he joined the new Kanye West prep school Donda Academy. Rumors that he was quietly committed to the Kentucky Wildcats have remained, but over the course of the Fall, he seemingly had a change of heart. The Kevin Keatts tenure at North Carolina State has been rocky at best, but this could help turn things around for him and the struggling ACC program.

Dillingham could be a program-changing player if he is used correctly on the court and make waves in the NBA. Five-Star talent cares first and foremost about getting to the NBA and being successful. This is an opportunity for the Wolfpack to reshape and redefine what their basketball program is all about.
