Earlier this year Jaylen Samuels noticed he was receiving more interest from North Carolina than any other school that was recruiting him.
All of that changed when Samuels put together a tremendous performance at NC State's camp last week. He measured at 6-0, 225 pounds and had one of the camp's top 40 times of 4.5 seconds.
On Saturday Samuels committed to NC State. He talked about the workout that landed him an offer from the Pack.
"I felt like I did pretty good. I showed my athleticism and did pretty well overall," he said.
NCSU is recruiting the Mallard Creek prospect as a fullback or an h-back.
Samuels talked about what he was able to see while on his trip to NC State.
"I got to see the football facility and I thought that was good. It's nice, real nice," he said.
"I talked to just about all of the coaches. The whole staff. They're kind of experienced. I think they're good coaches."
Ball State, East Carolina, Charlotte and some other FCS programs had also offered the Charlotte prospect.
