Pack Still Evaluating Krah

Pack Pride checks in with Durham (NC) Hillside cornerback Myer Krah and has the latest on his recruitment.


NC State hasn't offered a scholarship to Durham Hillside defensive back Myer Krah yet, but there is a lot of mutual interest between the prospect and the Pack's coaching staff.

The 5-11, 186-pound cornerback from Hillside has put together a big start to his senior season. While he may have once been considered a long shot to receive offers from ACC schools, this year many believe Krah is proving he belongs in the Division I ranks.

Through just a few games Krah has recorded three interceptions, seven pass breakups and three fumble recoveries. He has scored three total touchdowns. One of his scores came on a fumble recovery and another was a 77-yard return on special teams.

Krah plays safety and linebacker for Hillside in addition to corner, so he has more physicality than your average corner prospect at his size. That production and that toughness are things that coaches are taking notice of.

Over the past week Krah has been heavily immersed in the recruiting process. He attended NC State's win over Cincinnati at Carter-Finley Stadium last Thursday and then he watched Duke lose to Alabama in Durham on Saturday.

"I fell in love with NC State's DB's last year and watching them do their thing on the field [on Thursday] was special. I got to speak to coach Mike Reed and coach [Jason] Swepson. I had been keeping up with those guys over the phone and e-mailing them.

"Right now NC State is one of the schools my parents love. I used to go down there a lot with Vad Lee, and you know he's a Georgia Tech commit now. I'm cool with the coaches. Another guy I'm close with is A.J. Davis. He went there and he's a good friend of mine. He wants me to go there so I'm doing my best to show off for the coaches. I like their campus and a lot of the things they have to offer."

Krah said he also enjoyed his time at Duke and he is very familiar with the Blue Devils' program as well as the school. Maryland, South Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia Tech are some of the other schools that have been showing interest.

He has been planning to attend games at South Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina and Wofford over the course of the rest of the season.

Something else Krah has going for him is his ability on special teams. Coaches know that's one-third of the game, and his ability as both a return man and a gunner has him higher on some recruiting boards than he otherwise might be.

"Schools know that I'm capable of playing either [corner or safety] and a whole lot on special teams. I've got the most tackles on special teams for our school."

Krah will have an opportunity to watch two of his favorite schools very shortly, as he will be at the NC State-Georgia Tech game in Atlanta this weekend.
