One of the most impressive linebackers in the state this year was Wilmington (NC) Laney standout Coult Culler. At 6-5, 230 pounds, Culler is a load and he led the Bucs in 2013 with 119 tackles and nine tackles for loss.
Culler committed to NC State over UNC last May and he has remained
solid ever since. This past weekend he made his official visit to
Raleigh and talked with Pack Pride about the trip.
"The official visit, it was definitely one of the best weekends I've
had- especially going up there and meeting everybody, the coaches,
everything was just awesome. We got there on Friday and on Saturday
toured the campus, ate at the Alumni Club, went to the basketball
game and then went and watched the ACC championship. That was fun."
The Pack will have a hole to fill at middle linebacker in 2014 and
Culler told Pack Pride that he views that as a huge opportunity when
he arrives in Raleigh next summer.
"State likes me at middle linebacker, the same place I've been
playing all through high school. They're graduating the two guys
that played at middle linebacker this year some I'm coming in
competing with the other guys. Coach Huxtable has been real good to
me and he says he's going to try to get me in there and see what
While on his visit this weekend, Culler had a chance to hang out
with his friend and Wolfpack target, Kentavius Street. Culler said
he likes the Pack's chances.
"It was good. I got to talk to Kentavius a little bit. I was just
trying to get him coached up on State and everything and from what I
saw he enjoyed the weekend and he had just as good a time as all the
commits. Coach Kitchings is his recruiting coach and he's mine too
and he said he was real strong about it but he still has to take two
more visits but he said State is at the top of his list right now
which is good."
Culler is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 45 middle
linebacker in the nation by Scout.com.
