Recruit Reactions: Clemson

Several recruits give their take on NC State's recent game versus Clemson in Carter-Finley Stadium.

Several NC State commitments and prospects sounded off about the Wolfpack's effort against nationally-ranked Clemson last Thursday.


Kicker Rafael Gaglianone
"It was a great game, State's defense was playing really well and if that touchdown was not taken back, it would have been a completely different game.

"The future is looking good for NC State."

Tight End Garrett Bradbury
"Yeah! I thought they played with a lot of heart and "want to" but the 14-point swing when they called #80 out of bounds on the reverse killed the momentum... great game and atmosphere though!"

Defensive Tackle Deshaywn Middleton
"Yes, I was at the game. It was great. I enjoyed myself and saw a lot of commits. The D-Line was amazing and the best part of the night. I can't wait to join. Coach (Nielsen) is doing work and showed that the NC STATE D-LINE IS THE BEST."

Tight End Cole Cook
"It was upsetting that they lost, but I thought they played really hard and were well prepared. A few mistakes and some big plays made difference."

Wide Receiver Bo Hines
"I enjoyed watching the offense use different sets and motions and the way they use their wide receivers excites me.

"The environment was awesome and the defense played great as well."

Athlete Anthony Rush (2015)
"They played good... they just have to play all four quarters."

Punter A.J. Cole
"I was very proud of the way State played and the effort they gave. It is clear that big things will happen under Coach Doeren."
