Jalen Frazier

went from relative sleep to must-get recruit over the last year.

NC State locked up the three-star prospect Wednesday. Frazier said he verbally committed to the Wolfpack over offers from Appalachian State, Charlotte, Tennessee-Chattanoga, Coastal Carolina, Duke, Georgia State, Kent State, Liberty, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Southern Miss, Toledo and West Virginia.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Frazier, who ranks No. 30 overall in the state of North Carolina in the class of 2019, had 98 tackles in 15 games, including five for loss and a pair of sacks in his first year at Cornelius (N.C.) Hough High. Frazier added an interception that he returned 32 yards for a touchdown.

Frazier originally attended Denver (N.C.) East Lincoln High before making the move to Hough High. NC State first brought him in for an unofficial visit during January 2017, and a year later he was offered Jan. 27.

“I’m really honored to get the offer from NC State,” said Frazier in a past interview. “It was a great visit. They showed a lot of love, and they kept it real with me the whole time.”

Frazier is the fourth verbal commit for the Wolfpack in the class of 2019, joining Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield center/guard
