COMMIT ALERT: 5-Star 2021 Guard Jessica Timmons Picks NC State

NC State has landed a commitment today from Charlotte (NC) North Meck five-star guard Jessica Timmons.

An in-state star, Timmons has been on the Wolfpack’s radar for a while now and had recently cut her list to NC State, Pittsburgh, Mississippi State, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, and Boston College.

The 5-foot-8 guard averaged 24.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game as a junior at North Meck and has already scored over 2,000 points in her prep career.

She is just a few points away from breaking the school and county mark set by Wolfpack legend Andrea Stinson at North Meck.

Timmons is rated a five-star prospect by ESPN.

ESPN ***** No. 45 No. 18 Guard

What makes Timmons a priority is her versatility.  She can play off the ball because she’s a terrific three-point shooter but is a strong playmaker capable of playing some point guard, as well -- particularly in the Wolfpack’s popular “Horns” sets.

She is NC State’s first commitment in the 2021 class and a close friend of another top target: Aziaha James.  Timmons and James both played together on the AAU circuit with Boo Williams before Timmons was set to play this summer with the Carolina Flames.

ESPN Scouting Report: Athletic guard manufactures shots, rises on jumper in mid-range game to the arc; brings attack mode in transition game; quick off the dribble, pressures the defense and delivers in the key; catch and shoot range from beyond the arc; a stock-riser in the class of 2021.

Does this mean we aren't getting Rivers from Wilmington? Or was Timmons plan A all along?

Happy to get the commitment from Timmons. She is a speedy combo guard.

Rivers is rumored to be a silent verbal to USc. But she still hasn't announced it, so not completely giving up hope there. Also. another 6'0 guard Bree Hall recently committed publicly to the USC as well.

Also heard on another board that Aziaha James may be announcing her commitment this coming weekend. Can anybody confirm this information here?
