Rodman Noel
Scout Rating: **
Scout Rank: NR
Size: 6-4, 205 pounds
Hometown: Everett, MA
School: Milford Academy

Projected position at NCSU: Defensive Back

Stats: Noel tallied 41 tackles, seven pass breakups, four interceptions, two blocked field goals, and an interception return for a touchdown this past season at Milford.

Commit Date: January 19, 2011

Recruiting Scene: Noel signed with Maryland last February but failed to qualify academically. He enrolled at Milford Academy (NY) and re-committed to the Terps but eliminated Maryland after the Terps fired Ralph Friedgen.

He visited NC State and committed shortly after the trip.

Why NC State?: "I liked their whole campus and being with the players. They already felt like brothers to me and I felt like that is where I felt more comfortable."

Picked NC State Over: Maryland, Mississippi State, and Miami

Scouting Report: Noel could be one of the biggest sleepers in NC State's recruiting class. He flew under the radar as a high school senior due to academic issues, but blossomed as a prep standout at Milford Academy.

He is a ball-hawking defensive back who is physical and can cover. He also has the potential to develop into an outside linebacker.
