DL Jacquez McKissic
6-7, 250, 4.8
Opelika High School
The 6-7, 250 pound prospect visited North Carolina State this weekend where he came away very impressed. "It went real good," said McKissic in an interview Monday afternoon with CUTigers.com. "I liked all of it. I just felt comfortable with the players and the coaches. I would rate the visit a 10."
When asked how the visit compared with his visit to Clemson, McKissic responded, "They were both about the same. Right now those two are going head to head."
McKissic now planss to make his final decision tonight.
"I will probably make my decision tonight. It's between those two. I will talk with my mom and a few other family members. I just want to sit down and see how they feel."
So will distance be a factor for the talented defender? "No, it won't be a factor," stated McKissic. The commitment of teammate Adrian Kindred to the Tigers however, may be. "It might end up being a factor," stated McKissic.
Playing time will also be a consideration and the Wolfpack appear to have the advantage there according to McKissic.
"I feel like I can go play at North Carolina State. I feel like I can compete with the younger players they have for a starting position. At Clemson I would just be backing someone up."
