"So far I've got offers from Rice, Air Force, Toledo, Buffalo, Purdue, and NC State," said Hegedus. "NC State is the only one I'm actually really considering right now though. I like a lot about them."
He attended a camp at NC State in early June and earned the offer from the Wolfpack. Since the trip he has made another unofficial visit and says that he is really developing a strong relationship with the coaches.
"I've been up there three times now, and I love all the coaches," he stated. "The coach recruiting me, coach Tenuta, I love him. He's funny and just fun to be around, pretty much like all the coaches. I've definitely clicked with them.
"There are a lot of positives with NC State. I've met some players and already get along with them, and the atmosphere up there is great. I really like it."
Another factor in NC State's favor is Camden Wentz, a Lassiter alum and the Wolfpack's starting center, is close with Hegedus, and Pack verbal Niles Clark and Hegedus have a strong relationship as well.
"Camden Wentz went to my high school and I know him well... we're good friends," said Hegedus. "Plus, Niles Clark, my teammate, is already committed there and we're like brothers. We've been best friends for a couple of years now and he really wants me to go there with him.
"That's another reason I'm interested in them."
With all that being said, Hegedus isn't rushing to make a decision. He attended camps at Tennessee and Auburn and is waiting to hear back from both schools regarding scholarship offers.
"Tennessee is waiting on all their camps to be over before letting me know about an offer, and Auburn wants me to go through the process and see if they have any scholarships open up," said Hegedus. "Like with all the camps, they both wanted to see me run and see me in one-on-ones first."
NC State appears to be in terrific shape with Hegedus. However, he won't be making any decisions until his family is completely comfortable with his choice.
"Honestly, I almost feel like I'd probably already be committed to NC State if my parents were as comfortable with it as me," he stated. "My parents just want to get up there before I make a decision and right now they don't want me to rush into it... close my options too early. I've been thinking about it... I might also get some offers during the season so you never know."
Hegedus, who checks in at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, ran a 4.45 on grass at NC State's camp. As a junior, he totaled 42 catches for 675 yards and nine touchdowns.
