NC State is looking to build some depth and prepare for the future at the quarterback position so the staff is hitting the road hard and checking out some of the nation's top passers.
Defensive coordinator Mike Archer was at Jupiter High School in Florida last week and he was there to see Tyler Cameron, a three-star prospect.
At 6-3 and 216-pounds Cameron had already hauled in verbal offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Louisville, Illinois, Rutgers and South Florida as well as some programs from mid-major conferences. On Thursday he learned that another offer would be on the way.
"NC State offered me today," Cameron informed Pack Pride last Thursday. "Coach Archer came in today and he told me they were offering me."
There had been a prior misunderstanding that may have set back Cameron's relationship with NC State. Now the coaches are sure to hope that can be overcome.
"He actually told me they had offered back in December or January but I never found out about that," Cameron continued. "I was real excited to hear about it. It seems like they have an incredible atmosphere there just from the times when I've watched them on T.V."
After Archer's visit the two caught up briefly and the Pack's defensive coordinator explained the quarterback situation in Raleigh.
"He was talking to me about the quarterback issue with (Russell) Wilson and the guy behind him, (Mike) Glennon. He talked about the other guys they have, too. It seems like it could be a good situation to check out."
Cameron has never visited NC State and he said he would strongly consider taking a trip to Raleigh whenever he can fit that into his schedule. His plan is to visit some other schools over the summer and then start to trim his list. For now he remains open to all who might come along.
Last fall Cameron missed a significant amount of action with a torn labrum on his non-throwing arm. In seven games he passed for more than 800 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 600 yards and six scores. An excellent student, he hopes to be an early enrollee.
