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.

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