Wolfpack Impresses Truitt

NC State hosted Monroe (GA) athlete Stanton Truitt this past weekend, and the junior came away with an offer from the Wolfpack.

Monroe (GA) athlete Stanton Truitt already boasted a half dozen offers prior to this past weekend and he added one more to his collection after a junior day visit to NC State.

At 5-10, 180 pounds, Truitt is a versatile prospect that could play cornerback or wide receiver in college. However, the rising senior made his mark at quarterback after being moved there in 2012. All he did was finish up the season with nearly 1,500 yards rushing while adding better than 800 through the air.

Timed at 10.5-seconds in the 100-meter dash, Truitt has earned offers from UNC, South Carolina, West Virginia, Wake Forest, Arizona State and Vanderbilt. NC State made offer number seven on Saturday.

"They (NC State) offered me as an athlete and I was really excited about it because the head coach, I heard that he was offering me at the junior day. But my intentions were to just come and learn about the school, just get to know everything about them. I wasn't looking for an offer but the fact that I got one was good.

"As far as the visit, everything went really well. I got to meet a lot of coaches and just learn about their new philosophies and everything that they're bringing in. It was really good."

Wolfpack wide receiver coach Frisman Jackson is recruiting Truitt and the two hit it off during their time together last weekend.

"Coach Jackson, he showed me that he really cares and that he was going to get the best out of me. Just from being there 20 minutes in a meeting, he was drawing up the plays on a board and was making sure I was remembering everything. Just doing that during a junior day showed me that he cares a lot."

While Truitt says the position he ultimately ends up in college isn't necessarily a big deal, finding the best fit is something he's focused on.

"It really doesn't matter to me which position I play, receiver or corner.

"I'm just going to keep looking at every school that's offered and when I feel like a school is the best one then I will make my decision."

So have any schools made their way to the top of Truitt's recruiting wish list?

"I don't really have any favorites. I'm just doing my research on all the schools as far as the academic side and the football side and making sure they fit me."
