#1 Point Guard Dennis Smith Jr. Commits to NC State

2016 recruit commits to the NC State Wolfpack. He is the #1 rated point guard and #4 overall player in the ESPN top 100. He is currently recovering from an ACL injury and is probably going to miss his senior season of high school. To help Mark Gottfried recruit Dennis, the coach and his assistant, Orlando Early, flew down to Dennis's high school in a helicopter for a visit. A few days later Dennis commits to NC State. 

The Wolfpack Coaches have similar plans to visit Edrice Adebayo, a member of Dennis's AAU Team. He is also a Top Ten recruit. Right now he is the #6 player in the ESPN top 100. If NC State can get both of these players they will be contenders for the ACC Title.

ACC Basketball Schedule Best Games

> Duke vs. Carolina - This is always going to be one of the best games of the year in the ACC. They are both one of the best teams in the country and it should be a great game.

>Duke at NC State - Duke has not played very well in PNC Arena the last 2 times Duke has played NC State there, they were # 1 and #2 team in the country, but they lost both times. Duke also lost to Mercer, a # 15 seed in the NCAA tournament, when they were a # 2 seed. 

> Louisville vs. Florida St. - Florida St. and Louisville have 2 of the best recruiting classes in the ACC. They both will be inexperienced, but with a lot of talent.

>NC State at Carolina - Last year the Wolfpack beat the Tar Heels at home for the first time in the Roy Williams Era. The Tar Heels are looking for revenge. 

>  Notre Dame at Virginia - Both of these teams had promising seasons last year. Notre Dame made it to the Elite 8, but Virginia only made it to the round of 32. These 2 teams hope to have good seasons again this year.

> Syracuse at Louisville - Both of these teams are former Big East Members. The Cardinals had a pretty good season last year, making it to the elite 8. The Orange had a more average season except for all of the NCAA violations. They had a self imposed NCAA tourney ban, they would have been on the bubble otherwise.
