Last night’s ESPN crawl was particularly sweet for NC State fans. As “TOBtime” shared in our message forums:
Last night, while watching Al/TN baseball game I notice the ESPN scroll says Delvon Simmons (4 star DT) is now going to Texas Tech and has DECOMMITTED from unx. Immediately following that scroll it talks about Mr. Summers and says he has verbally committed to NC State. FOllowing the NC State part was 1 other statement – Summers also had an offer from North Carolina.
The news hit our message boards yesterday (link), but we wanted to get it on the main blog this morning now that the mainstream press started reporting it…
…highly rated dual-thread Greensboro Page High School quarterback, James Summers has committed to NC State. Summers chose State over North Carolina and East Carolina.
As is the customary, there is a lag time in the recruiting cycle between good performance and recruiting bounty. It now appears as though Coach Tom O’Brien and staff are now in the process of converting last year’s great performance into a future Wolfpack roster.
Summers is NC State’s third commitment for 2012 joining two athletic defensive backs — Niles Clark of Georgia and Southern Nash’s Josh Sessoms (recruiting by East Carolina and Virginia Tech amongst others).
