It looks like NC State has offered a scholarship to junior college quarterback, Jake Waters. You can view his Twitter by clicking here.
Waters is 6’2, 220 pounds and is expected to graduate from Iowa Western this December. It appears Waters only other current offer is from Akron.
The Waters offer could be integral for long-term roster stability after State lost both Tyler Brosius and Brian Taylor from the depth chart before the start of the 2012 season. Although Mike Glennon did not miss a single snap of the 2011 season to injury, Coach O’Brien has burned the redshirt of promising freshman quarter, Manny Stocker this season. Stocker has taken approximately 17 snaps and has attempted one pass through the first four games of the season.
With Colorado State transfer Pete Thomas waiting in the wings to potentially start for the Wolfpack next season, it would be very nice to have an adequate and mature back-up available who would provide Stocker the opportunity to red-shirt and therefore create more advantageous scholarship spacing at the quarterback position in the future.
