Wolfpack Offers Mallard Creek Wideout

NC State has offered Charlotte (NC) Mallard Creek wide receiver Jamel Harbison, but the rising senior admits he has a lot to learn about the Wolfpack.

Charlotte (NC) Mallard Creek wide receiver Jamel Harbison recently picked up an offer from NC State.

The 5-11, 181-pound prospect took a bit of a backseat to quarterback Marquise Williams for much of his high school career, but with Williams now in Chapel Hill, Harbison is ready to step into the spotlight.

At one point Harbison was saying his favorite school is Clemson. More recently he has maintained that Minnesota is at the top of his list. That's still holding true.

Harbison is high on the Golden Gophers because they're showing him the most interest right now. If other schools step up the plate they could make up a lot of ground.

What does the future hold in store for Harbison?

"Kentucky recently offered me about a week ago so I'm planning on going up to Kentucky. I want to see what the campus is like up there," he explained. "Also, I'm probably going to Minnesota at the end of June."

NC State offered Harbison about two or three weeks ago and perhaps surprisingly he has never been to the school. That's something he wants to do.

"Yes, without a doubt I want to get out to NC State," he said. "I'm definitely interested in checking them out.

"I've given them a little bit of thought but not a whole lot yet because I haven't been down there to see the campus yet. My recruiting coach has told me he wants me to come down and see the campus. He wants to make sure I'm comfortable with the coaching staff and the area around NC State. He wants me to see how I'd fit in with the offense and see how the offense flows. He also wants to see whether I'd fit in the offense on the outside or at the slot."

Harbison also plays baseball at Mallard Creek. He said the second basemen on his team comes from a family of big NC State fans, so he knows a little bit about the program through them.

He plans on announcing his decision after his senior season.

Harbison claims offers from Clemson, NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
