Farmville Central head basketball coach Larry Williford announced Monday morning that star sophomore shooting guard Terquavion Smith had officially given his verbal commitment to N.C. State.

“He went to N.C. State’s team camp last summer and that’s where they identified him,” Williford said. “They made him a priority and he went on a few unofficial visits. He said he really liked their style of play and that it fit him well.” 

Smith, who had previously stated that NCSU was his preferred destination, informed Williford of his choice just one day after visiting East Carolina.

ECU just had one of its biggest recruiting weekends of the season, and the list of visitors included Smith and South Central senior guard Shykeim Phillips. The Pirates lost 77-73 to Tulsa in overtime on Sunday in front of 4,248 fans in Minges Coliseum.

Coach Joe Dooley and the Pirates also are recruiting Farmville point guard Justin Wright, who is a junior and reports offers from ECU, Old Dominion and Rice.

Smith and the rest of the Jaguars finished off an undefeated regular season Saturday afternoon against North Pitt, going 24-0 and 10-0 in the Eastern Plains 2-A Conference. The Jaguars’ girls team also finished undefeated with a regular season record of 20-0, 10-0.

“We’re excited for the postseason and for state playoffs next week,” Williford said. “The last two weeks we've been working really hard on improving some other facets of our game.”

Both teams earned first-round byes in the EPC tournament and will play in the semifinals Wednesday.
