Pack, Jackets Lead For Starnes

South Stanly (NC) linebacker Jordan Starnes continues to list State as one of his top schools after visiting last weekend for the spring game.

Jordan Starnes is still listing NC State as one of his two favorites although he continues to wait on an offer from the Wolfpack.

The South Stanly linebacker appears willing to wait and that's a testament to his interest level in the Wolfpack.

Over the weekend Starnes made another trip to Raleigh to watch the Pack's spring game.

"I had been down for a practice and for a basketball game but it was cool to just see the spring game," Starnes said. "It was great to see how the fans came out and supported it. There were a lot of people there so it was real fun."

Starnes recounted a story from his trip that stuck with him.

"I actually talked to a woman whose husband played there previously and she said they love coming back," he said. "They go to all the sporting events. They were actually going to the baseball game after the football game."

The in-state prospect said that kind of school spirit is something he saw from a lot of the NC State fans he encountered and it's a big plus for the Pack as far as he's concerned.

The 6-3, 225-pound linebacker has now been to NC State "numerous" time, he says, so it's not like he learns a lot of new information when he's on campus. His comfort level with the Pack is at an all-time high.

"Me and Coach Bridge have always had a good relationship," he noted. "It's really nice to see him because it's more than a handshake. He sits down and spends time with you. He talks to everybody and that's really cool."

Starnes said the Pack is "definitely high on (his) list" even though they haven't offered yet.

"I really don't have a number one school. I really have two number ones," he laughed. "It's kind of tied between them (NC State) and Georgia Tech."
