PA OL Has Friendly Wolfpack Connection

Lancaster (PA) Catholic offensive lineman Adam DePietro has a friendly connection to NC State. Pack Pride breaks down his recruitment and interest in the Wolfpack.

Lancaster (PA) Catholic offensive lineman Adam DePietro has been picking up a lot of offers lately including one from NC State.

About two or three weeks ago DePietro, a 6-4, 250-pound guard and a three-star prospect according to, learned that NC State was verbally offering him a scholarship. While he has ten offers and picking up new offers doesn't come as a shock anymore, DePietro was pleasantly surprised.

Prior to learning of the offer DePietro hadn't had much contact with the coaches from NC State. However, he's hoping to learn much more about the Wolfpack over the coming weeks and months.

"They came by the school two or three weeks ago and that was when they offered," DePietro recalled. "My recruiting coach, (Jerry Petercuskie) came to the school."

While he's still learning about NC State, DePietro said he already has an interesting connection to the Pack.

"I'm really looking forward to finding out more about the program and what they're all about. I do have a teammate of mine from last year who's up there. Tyler Purvis was a receiver for us and I think he's playing fullback for them. I haven't kept in a lot contact with him but we're pretty good friends," he explained.

Earlier in the recruiting process DePietro made it a point to visit as many schools as he could. More recently his schedule has eased up and he has been spending a lot more time closer to home.

That will change in just a few weeks as he has a couple of road trips lined up.

"I think June 10-14, we'll be going to Chicago to see Northwestern. Then we'll drive to Michigan State, Illinois and Wisconsin," he noted.

"Once I'm done with that trip about a week later I'm going south to see NC State, Duke, Vanderbilt and maybe a couple of other schools."

DePietro maintains he doesn't have any favorites at this stage in the process. He is ranked the No. 18 guard in the nation by
