Recruiting Scene: NC State's recruiting of Sutton was one of the quickest of any of the recruits in the class of 2014. He camped at State last Jun and wowed the Wolfpack coaches with his workout and his numbers were off the chart. The Pack decided shortly thereafter to offer and Sutton wasted no time committing.
Why NC State? "The coaching staff sold me and how everybody is together. It seemed like everyone there is down to earth. State offered me the day after camp and it made me feel real good."
Picked NC State Over: East Carolina
Scouting Report: Although smallish, Sutton has a skill set that will give him the opportunity to do a multitude of things in college. He is extremely explosive and quicker than fast. Sutton has solid hands and should be a threat at running back and could also get a look in the slot on offense. Because of his quickness and acceleration, Sutton could make his earliest mark on special teams as a returner. He played defensive back in the Shrine Bowl and has the skills to line up at corner but is probably too talented and athletic not to put on offense. - Pack Pride Recruiting Analyst Steve Williams
