Proctor Talks Camp Visit

Hampton (VA) cornerback Rashawn Proctor talks with Pack Pride about his camp experience at NC State.

Hampton (VA) Bethel athlete Rashawn Proctor camped at NC State over the weekend and he told Pack Pride that he felt at home in Raleigh.

Only time will tell if Proctor has the opportunity to call Raleigh his home. After all, NC State hasn't offered yet. Proctor turned in a solid camp performance and interacted with at least a couple of coaches, so his name should be on the mind of Tom O'Brien and other members of his staff.
This much is clear - if NC State offers they should prove formidable for the other schools on his list, because Proctor loved his experience with the Wolfpack.

"I really liked it. It was organized and the coaches were real friendly," Proctor explained. "I felt like I was at home, like I was another family member at a family reunion."

Proctor said he spent a good amount of time talking to Keith Willis and Mike Reed, though he did interact with the other coaches as well.

"I also saw Tom O'Brien for the first time. That was pretty cool," Proctor said.

"The coaches said I did really well. They just told me to work on the little things and stay in touch. I hurt my pinky though. I jammed it while I was there and it's been swollen for a couple of days. I'm just trying to get that back to 100% so I can be back to where I was."

Proctor worked out at wide receiver and defensive back at the camp. Last fall at Bethel he hauled in 20 receptions for about 500 yards, so he's a big-play threat every time he touches the ball. The 5-10, 175-pound prospect might not have great height, but he's a good athlete that can take it to the house. He also has the versatility to get a look at cornerback as well.

Does he think the Pack will offer?

"I don't know," he admitted. "This recruiting thing is a little different to me. It's new. They said if they were going to offer it would be after the camp. I'm pretty patient. I've been talking to a few people and they're just saying to be patient and keep my head up, that first offer will come."

Two weeks ago Proctor camped at Richmond and he has also camped at Virginia Tech. In the future he will be going to Delaware, Old Dominion, Rutgers, Maryland and the National Underclassmen Combine.

Who is showing the most interest so far?

"I really don't know. It's mixed. Everybody's pretty much the same, about even. Virginia Tech will talk to me one week and then NC State will another week. Then it will be JMU, then Richmond. I'm hearing from all of them."
