Burlington (NC) Williams offensive lineman Harrison Gee committed to NC State roughly 10 months ago and he's been rock solid with the Pack ever since. A little over a week ago he attended a regional Nike Camp in Charlotte and more than held his own against some of the top defensive linemen from the region.
With his commitment out of the way, Gee has been able to focus exclusively on improving and preparing for his senior season.
"I've just working out really hard every day in the weight room. We're about to start spring practice so I'm really looking forward to that."
Despite the commitment to the Pack, the NC State coaches haven't taken that for granted and continue to recruit him hard.
"I talk to the coaches a lot. Coach Uremovich always reaches out to me over Twitter. Coach Huxtable has stopped by the school and I get mail from them pretty much every day so I still feel like I'm at the top of the list and they still really want me. I've kind of just shut down recruiting so I haven't been hearing from any other schools."
Any chance Gee is working to get others to join him in the class of 2016?
"I've been recruiting some other guys a little bit. I know when I went through the process I wanted to see what every one had to offer but we're working together trying to get some guys in."
Looking back on his decision, Gee said he is completely comfortable with his choice. He had obvious connections to State through his father Mike but beyond that, Gee felt State was simply a perfect fit.
"It just felt like home. I can't really pinpoint one thing. The whole atmosphere, the whole environment, it just felt right. Everytime I went on campus it just felt like I was in the right place. You know, obviously the connections there and being a fan my whole life played into it. I just felt like the players, the coaches, it was just right for me."
According to Gee, he feels the best days lie ahead for the Wolfpack.
"The sky's the limit if you ask me. Going from three wins to eight wins is a huge jump and to just keep recruiting like they are, the depth is just getting better and better. The talent's coming in."
