Gainsville, GA safety Daunte Carr has added NC State to his final four. We are in the mix with Wake Forest, Stanford, and UCLA. The reason I find this so worthy is the reason behind Carr’s list: academics. ESPN reports that Carr wants to major in biomedical engineering and pre-medicine, the former being a large reason why NC State is under consideration.
“Their campus is nice, it’s rebuilt,” Carr said. “Before I visited, I thought that N.C. State was probably a very old school. I was very surprised about N.C. State and what they have to offer. They are known for their Engineering program and they said they share a medical program with UNC-Chapel Hill. I did not know that, so it makes it very attractive to me.”
Carr also mentioned proximity as a factor in favor of the Wolfpack, who have recruited well under head coach Tom O’Brien.
In my opinion, it’s this type of person that will flourish in a Tom O’Brien type system. The kid is obviously academically gifted, not withstanding a solid 3-star defensive back recruit.
