NC State has landed a commitment from three star defensive end Tyrone Riley from Savannah, Georgia. Riley was previously committed to Kentucky as defensive line coach, Ryan Nielsen helped persuade Riley to flip from The Wildcats. He held offers from Kentucky, Cincinnati, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Purdue, Wake Forest plus Wisconsin. Riley displays the perfect frame for a defensive end in college as he is 6’7″ and weights in around 230 pounds. I recently mentioned a player that took a secret official visit to The Pack two weeks ago as Riley was this player. This commitment is huge since former three star defensive end commitment Malik Douglas from Southport, NC will not be enrolling with #Pack15 due to academic concerns.
So what’s left for NC State? There are currently three players left that NC State could potentially sign in the next week. Three star defensive lineman, T.J. Fehoko from Salt Lake City, Utah officially visited The Pack the past couple of days as he has now cancelled his remaining official visits. Fehoko is one of the top high school football players in Utah. Look for him to make a decision early next week, most likely on Monday.
Junior College defensive tackle, Courtney Miggins will be in Raleigh this weekend for an official visit. Miggins currently attends Pearl River Community College in Poplarville, Mississippi. I don’t have much info on Miggins but he currently holds an offer from Mississippi State plus visited Kentucky last weekend. He could be a player to watch over the weekend.
The final player to keep an eye on is three star defensive end, Jason Strowbridge from Deerfield Beach, Florida. Strowbridge at the moment is committed to Kentucky but officially visited NC State two weeks ago with Tyrone Riley. Strowbridge is still considering Central Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina and NC State but word of lately has Strowbridge projected to The Heels. Strowbridge would be a big time pick up for The Pack as hopefully Riley can sway him to join #Pack15.
Despite reports of Florida attempting to make a run at NC State quarterback commit Jakobi Meyers, Meyers confirmed on his twitter account this morning that he is solid with The Pack. This is huge because it’s hard to find another future quarterback in five days. StateFans Nation will be posting updates as Signing Day approaches. Go Pack.
