Projected Position At NC State: Tight End

Accolades: Till's receiving numbers were down a bit in 2013 as he also saw extensive time on defense. He finished the season with 12 catches for 294 yards and two touchdowns. On defense Till tallied 49 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and nine sacks.

Till was named to the Washington Post all-metro team as a senior and selected to play in the Maryland Crab Bowl, a yearly all-star event attracting the top players from the state of Maryland.

Commit Date: May 2, 2013

Recruiting Scene: Till, who is also a standout hoops player, chose to end his recruitment fairly early by committing to NC State back in May.

"I think it's a good offense there because they balance out their running ability and their passing ability. They've talked to me about how they've got two seniors that are tight ends and a junior. They didn't sign anybody in 2013."

Why NC State? "I really like the school and they have nice facilities. Plus, I like how the depth chart is at tight end right now. Overall, I just think it's the best fit for me."

Picked NC State Over: Duke, Toledo, UCONN, NC State, Temple, Towson, and James Madison among others

Scouting Report: Another jumbo athlete in the Wolfpack's 2014 recruiting class, Till could end up as a defensive end, defensive tackle, or offensive tackle, but is being recruited to play tight end. He has good, not great, top-end speed but can stretch defenses down the seam. A huge target for quarterbacks, Till can catch the ball cleanly with his hands and in traffic. Needs to continue developing as a blocker, but his basketball background is a huge plus for him on the gridiron.
