State Still the Team to Beat for Till

The Pack continues to lead for Upper Marlboro (MD) Wise High School tight end Micah Till.

NC State has one tight end commitment from the 2014 class and it's certainly possible the Wolfpack could add to that total before the start of the fall football season.

One recruit that the Pack appears to be in particular good shape with is Upper Marlboro (MD) Wise TE/OL Micah Till.

Till is a unique football player in that his 6-6, 270 pound frame is more representative of your average offensive tackle. But he says he's being recruited as a tight end and that's one reason NC State is so appealing to him.

"I think it's a good offense there because they balance out their running ability and their passing ability. They've talked to me about how they've got two seniors that are tight ends and a junior. They didn't sign anybody in 2013," Till said.

About a month ago Till attended a junior day at NC State and he had high praise for that trip when he spoke about it afterwards. He was able to watch the spring practice and he shared in a meal that had been prepared for recruits and coaches. Till made that trip with his teammate Marcus Allen and the two of them spoke at length with Dave Doeren at the end of the event.

Since that trip and the offer Till's interest in the Pack has been steadily climbing to the point where it's at now.

"My interest in them is high because out of the schools that have offered they're at the top of my list. There's a few other schools that haven't offered that I'm talking to. That's Maryland, West Virginia, Rutgers and Pittsburgh. They're all showing interest but they haven't offered yet," he said.

Till said another reason for his interest in NC State is the youth of the coaching staff. He likes that they are intense when they're at work but because they are younger they are better able to relate to players, he believes.

"I talk to Coach McNutt all the time and it's a good relationship. It's more like a buddy," Till said.

Till wants to make his decision before the start of his senior season but not until he plans out visits to some of the other schools that are recruiting him.
