"My family and I went up, and it was a very good visit," said Mr. Nunez. "We arrived on Friday and spent all of Saturday on campus. It was very professional and well-managed, and we had a chance to meet with the academic staff and talk a lot of football with coach Doeren and coach Canada.
"We've done this for a while, visiting schools, and my family was very impressed with the organization and how polished it was. As the young kids like to say, they showed us a lot of love."
According to Mr. Nunez, the family atmosphere at NC State stood out.
"It was all about the relationships," he said. "We were able to spend a couple of hours with the coaches and build a relationship. The coaches had their families there and my wife was able to meet their wives.
"We really didn't know much about NC State. They jumped into the mix a couple of months back so this was a real introduction to the school. We were impressed."
Nunez is one of the nation's top signal-callers. Rated a four-star recruit and the No. 25 quarterback in the country by Scout.com, Nunez is a hot commodity.
"Nunez is a quarterback who is comfortable when working outside the pocket," Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons stated. "He throws well on the move and his feet are a weapon as well. He is a quarterback who can move and who can make big plays with his legs. The ball comes out quickly. He need to improve his consistency as a true passer and continue to work on his mechanics."
Mr. Nunez pointed out that while his son may be labeled a dual-threat quarterback, he isn't high on that label.
"I believe it can have a negative connotation," said Mr. Nunez. "To me, it sounds like a runner who has to pass. Lorenzo can throw the football. He runs a 4.53 and as a last option he can run, but first and foremost he is a pocket passer who can do what he has to do with his legs. It's not a necessity.
"The schools under consideration, he fits all of them schematically. Some more than others... those that prefer to pass more than run the football."
Nunez has accumulated several offers throughout the process but appears to have narrowed his list down to five schools.
"It is down to Ohio State, South Carolina, NC State, Tennessee, and Miami," said Mr. Nunez. "I wouldn't say there is a leader. NC State, we just left so we're really impressed with them, but South Carolina and Ohio State are also high on his list.
"They are all kind of equal. It is just a matter of sitting down and making a decision. I will say that we're very impressed with NC State, and they are definitely contenders."
According to Mr. Nunez, a decision could come in the next couple of weeks.
"I believe he will be making a decision the week of May 5th," he stated. "It will likely be later in the week... Thursday or Friday. There won't be a press conference or anything like that because nothing has been accomplished yet. This is just a stepping stone. He will probably just call the coaches and put it on Twitter."
A dynamic athlete, Nunez checks in at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds and was timed this spring at 4.55 in the 40-yard dash at the Atlanta Nike Camp.
