Mercer Talks Official Visit

NC State verbal commitment Josh Mercer talks about his recent official visit to NC State with Pack Pride.

Josh Mercer was one of the recruits that was in Carter-Finley Stadium when the Wolfpack knocked off Florida State.

It certainly wasn't the first time the Pack has triumphed over the Noles at home. But it was a first for Mercer and a one of a kind experience for his family.

"It was a nice trip," Mercer said. "I went up there on an official visit. We stayed in the Marriott Hotel and they just showed us around the campus. We ate lunch and it was a good game. I knew it was going to be a good game. I knew it was going to be a close game and they just pulled it out. I could tell they wanted to win and they pulled out the 'W'.

"In the locker room they were definitely happy," Mercer laughed. "They had music going. I was talking to some of the coaches."

Mercer and his family were all blown away by the visit and wanted to point out how courteous the coaches were as well as how grateful they are for the opportunity he has been given.

"I felt like I was part of the team already. I didn't want to leave. The coaches were really nice. I think I made a good choice with NC State," he said.

The Guyton native and South Effington senior has rushed for around 600 yards and 15 touchdowns through six games, helping his team to a 4-2 record.
