Pack Looking at Fisher as Tight End?

Brunswick (MD) quarterback Ian Fisher says NC State could offer him as a tight end. Pack Pride runs down the latest on his recruitment.

Brunswick, Maryland quarterback Ian Fisher has been on NC State's radar for a while now and he recently took a trip to Raleigh.

The 6-5, 240-pound quarterback has received an offer from James Madison. Schools like NC State, Maryland and others are taking a more cautious approach and seem to be willing to wait things out for a little while.

Fisher was on the NC State campus not too long ago trying to learn more about the school. He got some good feedback from one of the members of the coaching staff, even if it wasn't necessarily what he wanted to hear.

"I was there probably three or four weeks ago just to see the campus," Fisher told Pack Pride this week. "They gave us a tour. It was probably me and nine other guys that were there. We just went down and got a tour. We watched their first scrimmage and saw the buildings and everything. Me and my mom drove around the campus a little bit."

Assistant coach Keith Willis gave Fisher some insight into what the Pack's staff thinks about him and how he might fit in with the Pack.

"I did talk to coach Willis and he pretty much told me he thinks I can play quarterback, but he thinks I could be an amazing tight end," Fisher explained. "Either way I'll have to go to camp. He doesn't think I would have a problem getting an offer for one (of the two positions)."

While Fisher is interested in NC State and has high regard for the school, right now the Wolfpack is not at the top of his list.

"Now that I have the offer from JMU to play quarterback it's going to be pretty hard for someone to get me to go somewhere else," he said. "It's hard to imagine liking a school more than I like JMU and they're letting me do something I want to do."

Boston College could be another school that gets involved soon. They had a coach that stopped by Brunswick High School on Wednesday to get a quick look at Fisher while the team was working out. Coaches from Towson and Delaware did the same.

It might not be long before Fisher shuts down the entire recruiting process.

"I want to decide before the season and my goal date is about June 1," he said. "I know that's before camps but I feel like after coaches come through the school I'll know what they're about and what my chances are to get an offer. At this point I'm trying to make my decision by June 1."

When asked whether it's safe to say JMU is his current leader Fisher laughed and replied, "That's pretty accurate."
