Commit Date: November 18, 2013
Recruiting Scene: Although a standout athlete for Walled
Lake, it was at kicker that schools took the most interest. Air Force offered Bambard in October and then the Wolfpack- intent on
offering a kicker in the 2014 class- followed suit in November.
Bambard, who had camped at State the previous summer, jumped on the
Pack's offer in just a few hours.
Why NC State? "They say that I can compete as a freshman and
be the guy for four straight years. They said one of the deciding
factors in offering me was that I'm an athlete. They don't want the
specialist to just be a kicker, I'm a weapon when they want to go
for it on fourth downs."
Picked NC State Over: Air Force
