NC State picked up its first class of 2025 commit of the summer when wide receiver Jamar Browder announced he is joining the Wolfpack Sunday night. The 6-5, 200-pound wide receiver committed to the staff Saturday.

Browder, a rising senior at Lake Worth (Fla.) Santaluces Community High, picked the program over offers from Louisville, Syracuse, Pittsburgh and others. He previously had official visits scheduled with Indiana and Appalachian State, while also working on setting up a trip to Georgia Tech.

The Wolfpack staff visited Browder at his school during spring practice, and his Wolfpack recruitment picked up from there. NC State considered him a top priority on its outside receiver board going into this visit, and he ended up committing during his weekend in Raleigh.

“My interest is really high,” Browder said in a recent interview with “I’ve heard good things [about] them from numerous people, like they’ll just happen to talk about NC State.”

Before spending the weekend in Raleigh, Browder said he saw zero red flags around the program. He had never visited the Wolfpack before this weekend and wanted to get a better picture of the university’s academics, the student housing and a potential path to playing time as a freshman.

NC State freshman quarterback Cedrick Bailey Jr. hosted the wide receiver on this visit. Wide receivers coach Joker Phillips was the rising senior’s primary recruiter, and offensive quality control coach Gavin Locklear played a significant role as well.

He visited the Wolfpack June 7-9 with his high school teammate, three-star cornerback Caden Gordon. They’re interested in teaming up at the next level.

“We’re trying to make it a thing where we come in a package deal,” Browder said. 

Browder is commit No. 6 of the program’s 2025 class, joining three-star cornerback Robert Jones III, three-star signal-caller Will Wilson, three-star safety Tristan Teasdell, three-star tight end Gus Ritchey and three-star defensive lineman Colby Cronk.

The wide receiver caught 39 passes for 730 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior at Santaluces High, averaging 18.7 yards per reception.
