There was no doubt that West Palm Beach (FL) Palm Beach Lakes WR Stephen Louis enjoyed his official visit to NC State a couple of weeks ago. He was close to pulling the trigger on a commitment to the Pack during his visit but decided to hold off after returning home and speaking to his parents.
Louis decided he could wait no longer and made the call to the NC
State coaches earlier this evening.

plans to enroll at NC State in January.
"Our season is over so I'm just working out with my brothers and
working on my school work so I can get my GPA up as high as I can

between now and then?
"The recruiting process is done. I know where I want to go."
