La Grange Park (IL) Nazareth Academy offensive lineman Jack Shutack picked up an offer from the Wolfpack a couple of weeks after performing well at the Chicago NFTC.
Western Michigan and Rutgers have also offered and the Pack looks strong early on but Shutack also added that he isn't sure who his favorite would be if he were able to include schools that have not offered yet.
NC State offered him a couple of weeks ago but the Pack had been in contact with Shutack long before that.
"They haven't come up here in the spring but Coach Doeren and Coach Uremovich came down during the winter. They said everybody on the staff knows the Chicagoland area and they know how to recruit up here."
Uremovich has made the biggest splash with Shutack so far. Different coaches take different approaches when it comes to recruiting and how they interact with the players they talk to. Shutack likes the way the NC State offensive line coach handles his business and comes across.
While Uremovich is personable he also doesn't waste anyone's time.
"I think they take stuff pretty seriously up there. They want to turn NC State around and become a big powerhouse in the ACC. What I like about Coach Uremovich is he seems pretty serious about his job. He going to tell you up front what he thinks. He's not going to waste your time. He's serious."
The Illinois lineman has visited NC State but that was before they had offered. That trip was a month ago so Shutack already knew at the time that the coaches were looking at him and thinking about an offer.
Uremovich toured Shutack around the campus. That tour emphasized the facilities heavily.
"I got to see the stadium too. I was surprised to know that it's the largest football only facility in the country. I thought the weight room was pretty cool. The facilities were really cool."
Shutack said he doesn't feel pressed to make a decision soon. He's waiting on Tennessee, Michigan State, Ohio State and Missouri to find out whether those schools will offer him.
