COMMIT ALERT: Athletic 2023 LB Kelvon McBride Flips To NC State

November 25, 2022

NC State just landed a commitment from Mobile (AL) 2023 linebacker Kelvon McBride‍ who had been previously committed to Vanderbilt.

McBride recently was on campus for the Wolfpack’s matchup against Boston College.

“I liked it to be honest,” said McBride. “It was a good environment. The players, they had a good attitude. I like that coach Gibson is aggressive with his linebackers. I feel like he sets them up to make plays and that’s what they were doing.”

Coach Gibson has been key to NC State’s efforts and his relationship with McBride is one of the primary factors weighing in the Pack’s favor.

“Coach Gibson is a good guy. When I talked to him during the meetings when I was visiting, he was telling me I’m a top priority for them and when they were able to go out and see players, I was one of the first players he went to see. He came to see me play at my senior night. They’re going to need some linebackers after this season so that’s something I’ve looked at.”

McBride is NC State’s 14th commitment in the 2023 recruiting class.

Stay tuned for more shortly from McBride on his Wolfpack commitment!
