Lloyd Getting Familiar With NC State

Graham (NC) Southern Alamance athlete Johnathan Lloyd talks about his junior day visit to NC State.

Graham (NC) Southern Alamance quarterback Johnathan Lloyd spent Saturday in Raleigh with NC State's coaches and lots of other recruits.

Lloyd has entertained early recruiting interest from around the southeast and has landed close to 10 offers already. However, this weekend was all about NC State and Lloyd talked with Pack Pride about his visit to Raleigh afterwards.

"It went good just meeting the new staff and going to position meetings with coaches. We ate and hung out with some of the players. It was just a good day," Lloyd said.

Each of the coaches had a brief opportunity to make an impression on the recruits present. Lloyd was one of the bigger names to attend the event so he received more attention than some.

He was happy with the interaction and appreciated the interest.

"They're great. They're great," Lloyd said with emphasis. "I really like them. It was a lot of guys so talking to (the coaches) was pretty brief but from the contact that was made I can tell they're a bunch of good guys."

The recruits broke down into two groups, offense and defense, with Lloyd grouped in with the former.

"I like the offense. It's a lot of different variations of plays that go on. They've got different formations but it's easy concepts and tough for defenses to get a grasp on," he said.

One question Lloyd will want answered is what position the coaches see him at. That's a question not only for NC State but for every school recruiting him.

It still seems to be open-ended but Lloyd is okay with what he has heard.

"The new staff looked at my quarterback tape and they liked me at that. At first they offered me as a receiver so right now it's just a matter of time before I find out," he said.

Lloyd said it's tough to describe his interest in NC State right now because he wants to spend more time with the coaches in a personal setting where he can get more questions answered. He made the trip with his father on Saturday.

The next college visit Lloyd will make is a junior day at Wake Forest.
