Commitment Tracker: 2022 Class is on the Board with 3 ACC Commits

Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

The North Carolina Commitment Tracker will be a weekly blog to track players and programs through the recruiting process.  Each week we will look players that have pledged their commitment with back ground on select players and their process.  We will also look total commitment numbers across the state and profile select schools as they work to complete their 2019 class.

Another busy week across the state as 16 players pledged their commitment to the school of their choice.  The attention grabbing move of the week belongs to North Carolina State as not 1, not 2, but 3 2022 graduates made commitments to Coach Elliott Avent and the Wolfpack staff.  As we began the week, the 2022 class did not have any players from North Carolina committed but, similar to last year, this is about the time some players begin to make decisions. 

The three NC State commits in the 2022 class include Michael Gupton (OF, Rolesville HS), Graham Smiley (C, East Lincoln HS), and Matt Heavner (2B, North Lincoln HS).  Gupton is a twitchy athlete with strength present.  The frame should continue to fill out and his best baseball is easy to see coming in the next few years.  Smiley and Heavner are a part of the South Charlotte Panther team that had a big week in Florida.  Heavner was profiled a few weeks back as part of the 2018 Fall Scout Blog.  Here is what we wrote following the South Atlantic Border Battle:
