Will Means Commit?

Richburg (SC) Lewisville athlete Malcolm Means plans to visit NC State this weekend, and if everything goes well, he could leave Raleigh a Wolfpacker.

NC State has had their eye on Richburg (SC) Lewisville athlete Malcolm Means for quite some time but the Wolfpack's interest took off after the senior's work at the Shrine Bowl a few weeks ago. Although Means already held an offer from Louisiana-Lafayette, NC State became the first major school to offer with UNC following suit just this past week.

At 6-2, 190 pounds, Means starred at both running back and safety for Lewisville. On offense he rushed for 1,043 yards and 10 touchdowns while adding 28 catches for 580 yards and another seven scores. On defense he tallied 28 tackles, five tackles for loss, four sacks and four interceptions while returning two of those for touchdowns.

That production along with a stellar week at the Shrine Bowl were all NC State needed to extend a scholarship offer. Means talked about the offer recently with Pack Pride and his reaction to the news.

"I was very excited. The running back's coach, he let me know I had an offer. We had been talking on the phone and then he called and just let me know I had the offer. They have me listed as an athlete but more than likely I'll play safety."

While not set in stone, Means indicated there's a chance he could commit when he makes an official visit to NC State this coming weekend. He still has an offer from UNC to mull but the Pack appears to be in great shape.

"I'm visiting State on Jan 11. I like what that coaching staff did at Northern Illinois and I think they're going to do some great things this coming year at NC State.

"I would say NC State is my top school right now. I'll probably commit more than likely (when I visit). I'll have to see how I like the campus They're at the top of my list so I just want to make sure I like the campus and if I do, I plan to commit on the visit."

Means hosted his recruiting coach, Wolfpack running back's coach Des Kitchings on an in-home visit this past weekend. He is currently unranked on Scout.com.
