Chris Register visited NC State for the first time on Sunday and the trip exceeded his expectations.
The 2014 linebacker is a player that many seem to believe is among the state's top prospects from his class, so he was one of the more important visitors for the Wolfpack's scrimmage on Sunday.
"It was very fun actually. It was very fun. I liked it," Register told Pack Pride late Sunday evening. "It was better than what I thought it would be."
Register didn't just take in the scrimmage. As it was his first time at NC State he also wanted to see some of the school. He got a chance to do that.
"I got to see mostly the athletics part of NC State. What really caught me was the racquetball court inside the locker room. We had fun in there," he said laughing. "I don't think I was playing it right either. I was just hitting it against the wall."
Register said he spoke with Tom O'Brien and several other coaches on the staff. The Pack's head coach really seemed to impress him.
"Coach O'Brien is a real modest guy. He's just going to tell you things straight up. He's straight to the point," Register said.
"My position coach is straight to the point too. They remind me of my coaches now. I think I could really transfer to college well with that because I'm already used to guys like that."
So how does NC State stack up with some of the other schools that he's been to like North Carolina, Clemson, Alabama, Wake Forest and others?
"They're in the running. They're up there," he said. "I haven't really separated anybody or closed anybody out. I'm pretty much done for the summer with our season starting. I'm just focused on what we're doing at my high school. We got our first win last week."
