Bo Hines attended his first game at NC State when the Pack defeated Louisiana Tech and the memory of the experience won't go away any time soon.
Not only was it his first game at State but it was a chance for him
to imagine himself running out onto the field and suiting up for the
Pack. Hines committed to NC State earlier this year and has not had
He was happy to witness the start of the Dave Doeren era and thinks
it got off to a good beginning.
"I thought the atmosphere was great especially for the first game of
the year. It seemed like a pretty packed house and the fans were
great. It was exciting that was actually the first one. It was my
first game there because they didn't start recruiting me until the
new staff came in."
Hines was only in town for an unofficial visit so the trip was not
as detailed as his official will be later this year. He plans to
enroll one semester early so the official will have to be during the
season or in December.
While he did not get the full treatment he can expect on an official
visit Hines was able to go down on the field before the game.
"It was pretty fun to walk around and watch the guys warm up and
then be in the student section so we could talk to the students. We
left a little bit early because I came with some guys from school
and we wanted to beat the traffic," he said.
He did not have any complains about the action on the field and was
satisfied with a blowout win to kick off Doeren's career in Raleigh.
"I was very impressed. The coaches were the main reason I chose NC
State and they proved to me that they are what I thought they would
be on gameday. They were very prepared and had the team ready. I
like the style of offense as a receiver. I liked how they motion a
lot and make it tough on defenses. I thought the way they ran their
offense was pretty efficient. Even losing your starting quarterback
and putting up 40 points was great."
Hines is rated a three star prospect and the No. 177 wide receiver
in the nation by Scout.com.
