Pack Still in the Mix For Brunson

NC State is scheduled to host four-star linebacker Devaris Brunson on an official visit this weekend. Where does the Wolfpack stand in his recruitment?

Devaris Brunson is still hearing a lot from NC State but so far the ECU commit has resisted the Pack's push to commit.

The Pack first offered Brunson while Tom O'Brien was head coach and current head coach Dave Doeren has continued State's pursuit. For Brunson's part he simply wants to take it all in to make sure he's making the best decision for his future.

Pack Pride caught up with Brunson recently to find out where the Lake City (SC) stands in regards to his recruitment.

"NC State came by and watched me wrestle (last Tuesday night). (Monday) ECU came to the school."

Brunson isn't just a talented linebacker. He's also accomplished on the mats with a perfect 12-0 record. There are two more matches before the team playoffs and then the individual players, where Brunson will really showcase his ability.

What does he think about the new staff at State?

"The new linebacker coach and the defensive coordinator are recruiting me and I've been hearing good things about them," he said. "I think they'll do a good job."

Brunson has visited NC State two times already and he will return for an official visit on January 25. This past weekend he was scheduled to visit East Carolina. The trip later this month will be Brunson's first since Doeren and his new staff took over.

While the Lake City (SC) outside linebacker will likely choose between the Pirates and Wolfpack he added that USC and Syracuse have contacted his coach recently.

Brunson is rated a four-star prospect and the No. 29 OLB in the nation by Scout.com.
