Charlotte (NC) Providence defensive lineman Harrison Monk grew up a State fan and he told Pack Pride recently that the Wolfpack is till one of his top schools.
It should come as no surprise, then, that Monk has been very pleased with NC State's interest of late.
At 6-4 and anywhere between 248 and 250 pounds, Monk is considered a sleeper defensive line prospect that could play either end or tackle in college.
Monk began his high school career on the defensive line for Providence but was moved over to offensive tackle by his coaching staff out of necessity. He knows he probably doesn't have the size to play offensive tackle in college, so defensive end or tackle is where his future lies.
"I went to the camp (at NC State) and I have a family friend who played for NC State," Monk told Pack Pride. "He's talking to somebody up there for me. They know about me and I'm going back to their camp this year."
Ed Estridge is that family friend that played for the Pack and is now speaking on Monk's behalf, and the junior prospect will have him to thank if an offer from NC State ever comes through. Monk would be extremely excited if that happens.
"They have great facilities," Monk said of NC State. "I've always been an NC State fan. They have great facilities and I like their coaches a lot. I love coach Tom O'Brien. He seems like a really great guy. I just like the way they do stuff."
Monk plans on camping at NC State but he also plans on camping at Wake Forest and Duke, because those schools have shown some interest as well.
