After nearly three years of recruiting Dennis Parker III, NC State finally landed the four-star wing from Richmond (VA) John Marshall moments ago. Cory Smith and Miles Masercola jump on an emergency podcast to discuss the Wolfpack's first commitment in the 2023 class.

Just how important was it for Kevin Keatts and the staff to land Parker? What does he bring to the program that's missing? Who does he compare to from the Pack's past? Can this help to keep turning the tide in the Commonwealth of Virginia? We touch on all that and more in this podcast!
