Player: Kalen McCain
Hometown: Durham, North Carolina
High School: Hillside High School
Position: Safety
Vitals: 6'1/185

NOTES: McCain, rated a three-star safety by, had a terrific senior season for Hillside. He finished the year with 50+ tackles, nine interceptions, seven pass breakups, one sack, and one forced fumble.

Some feel that McCain could play cornerback on the next level due to his length and athleticism. Where does he expect to play for the Wolfpack?

"I got the impression that I might play safety," he said. "But, I'm not sure because they haven't said for sure yet. I just know I'll be in the secondary.

"It really doesn't matter to me. I'll do corner or safety."

McCain originally committed to NC State over offers from Louisville, Georgia Tech, East Carolina, and Virginia Tech among others. He will enroll at NC State in January.

"I'm really excited for it," he said. "It's not that big of a move for me because I'm from Durham, but I'm ready to get a headstart."
