Dillingham is the No. 8 overall prospect in the class of 2023, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 1 point guard in the class.
He attends Donda Academy, which was started by Kanye West earlier this year. He’s listed at 6-foot-2, 165 pounds.
Dillingham chose NC State over offers from programs like Kansas, Memphis and LSU.
This is a huge get for NC State coach Kevin Keatts. Dillingham is the highest-rated recruit he’s earned a commitment from during his time as the head coach.
On the court this season, NC State is carrying a 5-1 record in the B1G/ACC Challenge. The Wolfpack will host Nebraska on Wednesday night at 7:15 p.m. ET.
