With offers on the table from Mississippi State, Duke, East Carolina, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Iowa, Wake Forest, and West Virginia, Powder Springs (GA) Hillgrove defensive end Bradley Chubb has become one of the more sought-after prospect for the class of 2014.
At 6-4, 235 pounds Chubb is currently rated a three-star prospect and the No. 46 defensive end in the nation by Scout.com.
NC State was not on Chubb's early offer list but has still expressed a ton of interest and that was enough to land a visit this past Thursday from the rising senior. He told Pack Pride that he came away amazed at what the Wolfpack had to offer.
"This was my first visit to State," said Chubb. "They took me on a tour, and I was just blown away by it because on TV, they undersell it so much you would never guess it was this nice. We went to the new library and it was just one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. Everything is just amazing.
"Coach Jackson, the receivers coach is recruiting me but I also got to talk to coach Nielsen a lot too but they're all just great coaches. Coach Nielsen was talking to me about what they're know for as far as pass rushing."
Chubb said he's reached double-digit offers and for now, he's content to research the schools on his list before coming to a decision. That research will continue over the summer as he plans to visit several schools.
"I have a total of 10 offers right now. The latest one was from West Virginia. Right now I'm just riding it along but I should know where I want to go by my season or midseason. But I'm not sure yet.
"We've been to Georgia Tech but we're also going to Duke and Wake Forest and sometime in July we're going to Mississippi State."
So where does NC State fit in?
"If they offered they would definitely be high, high on my, list but I'm going to talk to coach and see if I get an offer. If I don't I'm still going to talk to the coaches and they'll still be high on my list."
On Thursday afternoon NC State did offer Chubb so he'll definitely be a prospect to watch in the coming weeks.
