Foggie: "He's An Excitable Guy"

High Point (NC) Central wide receiver Juwan Foggie talks about his interest in NC State.

High Point (NC) Central wide receiver Juwan Foggie has yet to land his first scholarship offer but it seems to be a matter of when, not if.

As a junior, Foggie put together a stellar season, finishing 2012 with 65 receptions for 960 yards and seven touchdowns. At 6-2, 195 pounds, the rising senior is a sizable target with reliable hands. For his efforts he was named all-conference, all-area and all-county.

NC State is a school that has taken notice of Foggie's potential and they invited him to raleigh for their recent junior day event.

"The junior day was good," Foggie told Pack Pride recently. "I enjoyed seeing all the facilities, the new coaches and the new staff. They talked to us a lot. The head coach, coach Doeren, he talked to us a lot. They broke us down with our position coaches and they showed us how their offense runs.

"Coach (Clayton)White is recruiting me. He's a laid back guy. He's the type of guy that just wants to get me up to NC State."

While former Wolfpack head coach Tom O'Brien took a more stoic approach to football and recruiting, Foggies said current head coach Dave Doeren is the exact opposite.

"Coach Doeren, he's an excitable guy. He's an outgoing coach. He's up tempo and likes to get after it."

On the recruiting side, Foggie said he's received a ton of attention but still awaits that elusive first offer.

"I'm still waiting for my first offer but I'm hearing from State, UNC, Duke, Virginia, Wake Forest. Those are probably the ones that are closest to offering.

"State says they would like to see me in camp and work out in person."

Foggie added that for now, all of the schools recruiting him are on equal footing.

"Right now, I'm watching everybody so I don't have any favorites."
