NC State starting left tackle Rob Crisp suffered a concussion in the second game of 2013 and missed the rest of the season. Luckily, the senior was granted a fifth year with the program thanks to a medical redshirt.
Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren announced Monday that the 6-7, 300 pound lineman will be back in action this summer.
Crisp’s experience will be a boost for a 2014 NC State team that is busting at the seams with youth. According to Joe Giglio’s count over at the News & Observer, the Wolfpack will have 51 redshirt freshman and true freshman in the program this fall.
Coach Dave Doeren will begin his second spring practice Wednesday morning with 21 redshirt freshmen. By the time the 2014 season begins in August, Doeren will have 51 freshmen in the fold….
Doeren will put the Wolfpack through 15 practices over the next six weeks, culminating with the Kay Yow Spring Game on April 12 at Carter-Finley Stadium.
