Randleman's Juval Mollette has as much potential as almost any player in the state so Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren must've been happy to see him at NC State last week for Junior Day.
More than anything the visit was about getting to know the campus
and what it would be like to live as a student-athlete for the Pack.
There were a lot of other big recruits in attendance, partly because
of Tom Lemming's annual photo shoot which matched up again with the
Junior Day put on by the coaches.
Mollette spent most of his time touring around the school.
"I mostly got to explore the campus and talk to the coaches. I got
to see some things I hadn't seen before so it was really nice. It
was kind of similar to other places. I had been to Carolina, Duke
and a bunch of places. But it was different, too. I talked to Coach
Doeren, Coach White and Coach Jackson and they were telling me they
were glad I was able to make it up there."
One of the things the coaches talked about with all of the recruits
is their vision for the offense and what they want to do to move the
ball and put points on the board. They made the case to Mollette
that they want to spread teams out and distribute the ball to a wide
variety of players.
The 6-4 receiver is capable of making a lot of plays downfield and
Mollette's catching ability has helped establish him as one of the
state's elite player.
"They were talking about getting the ball out and throwing it more
so that was good to hear."
Mollette said he enjoyed getting to know some of the other best
players from North Carolina but he hasn't gotten to know any of the
players already at NCSU yet. He hopes that happens later.
The Randleman product wants to start eliminating some schools by the
middle part of the summer but he wants to take more college visits
before then and for now he said no schools stand out.
Mollette currently holds offers from NC State, UNC, Clemson,
Tennessee, Ohio State and Virginia Tech among others. He is rated a
three-star prospect and the No. 38 wide receiver in the nation by
