One day after landing Marietta (GA) DT Jabari Zuniga, NC State received even more good news Wednesday evening when Hillside OL Emanuel McGirt committed to the Wolfpack.
"Yes, sir I committed tonight," McGirt told Pack Pride. "I decided
to go ahead and commit because I know I could help bring some hard
working players to our home state and help our team become better
and contribute. I just thought that was the most powerful thing. The
coaches, you know they're my kind of people. I'm cool with all the
players. I feel at home there. I feel comfortable. That's really
what made me want to commit."
McGirt has initially committed to UNC over the summer but had a
change of heart and reopened his recruiting. The primary players
continued to be NC State, Georgia, Virginia Tech and UNC although
the race had primarily boiled down to State and UGA recently.
McGirt will make his official visit to NC State on Dec 5. He is
rated a four-star prospect and the No. 25 offensive tackle in the
nation by Scout.com. McGirt's recruiting was headed up by Wolfpack
running back's coach Des Kitchings.
Pack Pride will have much more on McGirt's commitment so stay tuned!
