Reagan Solid For the Pack

NC State offensive line commitment Tylar Reagan committed to the Wolfpack and Pack Pride caught up with him this past week for an update.

It's been a month and a half since Tylar Reagan committed to the Wolfpack and Pack Pride caught up with him this past week.

Turns out, Reagan has never once wavered in his commitment to NC State.

"I'm committed 100-percent, definitely," Reagan said when reached by phone this week.

But that doesn't mean other schools have given up so easily. The 6-5, 270-pound guard had received offers from UConn, Arkansas, Tennessee, USF, Kentucky and Iowa State, among others, but ultimately his decision came down to two schools - NC State and Central Florida.

The Knights have continued to recruit Reagan just as though he were an uncommitted prospect but it doesn't look like that persistence has paid off.

"It came down to UCF and NC State," Reagan recalled. "UCF hasn't slowed down a bit since I committed. Since September 1 when coaches were able to call me and talk to me I've gotten a phone call from them every week.

"They call me and talk to me and let me know they're still very interested. If I were to ever choose to change my commitment and go somewhere else that's where it would be, but deep down I'm fully committed to NC State and nothing can change that."

For their part NC State has done a good job of staying in touch with Reagan as well. In fact, the most visible figure in the football program personally contacted him just a few days ago.

"I talked to Coach O'Brien the other night. He just kind of called me to talk and was checking on me," he said. "We talked a little bit about the loss we had against Tennessee. I told him it was a tough loss.

"I said, 'Coach, it just came down to predicaments in our control and we let them get back in the game when they really shouldn't have been. We let it slip out of our hands but we've come back and we're ready to go.'"

Jacksonville (FL) Bartram Trail was 2-1 on the season headed into this past weekend's action.
