    Robert Dillingham, the No. 10-ranked prospect in the class of 2023, committed to N.C. State in his hometown of Charlotte, N.C., he announced Wednesday.

    “Really I just wanted to be treated as family,” Dillingham said in an Instagram Live Wednesday with Overtime Larry.

    The 6-foot-2, 165-pound point guard from Donda (CA) Academy, chose the Wolfpack over Kansas, Kentucky, LSU and Memphis.  

    “I’m a playmaker and a leader and just a point guard for real,” Dillingham said of his game at the Holiday Hoopsgiving event in Atlanta over the weekend.

    Dillingham was exceptional Friday evening at Holiday Hoopsgiving, going for 23 points, five rebounds and three assists in a 50-45 loss to Huntington Prep (WV) on Nov. 26.

    “I feel like I didn’t play as well and I didn’t get my teammates involved. I could’ve done a lot better at that,” Dillingham said. “I feel like we played good as a team, but we just have to move the ball more.”

    Ranked by as the No. 1 point guard in the class of 2023, Dillingham is looking to become a better leader for his teammates.

    “Getting through to them and helping them play better and to their full potential by just talking to them,” Dillingham said. “I feel like that’s what I need to get better at – being a leader.”

    Dillingham made the decision to join Donda Academy, Kanye West’s new Adidas-backed prep school in Simi Valley, Calif., in October and is playing alongside top recruits Zion Cruz, JJ TaylorJahki Howard and Brandon White, among others.

    “Basically, I just came to California to focus more on basketball so I wouldn’t have to focus on other things,” he said. “It was just a better opportunity out here and gives me more time in the gym.”
