Suwanee (GA) Collins Hill defensive end Tomon Fox attended camp at NC State on Sunday and left impressed with the experience.

"It was a good camp," said Fox. "It was a lot more than I expected, especially from coach Nielsen. I got to see how he teaches and the kind of stuff he does with his players."

Defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen is recruiting Fox for the Wolfpack, and the two have built a relationship.

"From what he says on the phone I can tell he's a good coach," Fox said. "He knows his stuff. He develops and creates good athletes."

NC State's camp capped a two-camp weekend for Fox, who also worked out at North Carolina. Fox didn't have to camp at either because he already held offers from both schools,but he saw advantages in participating.

"I still wanted to show them what I could do in person and not just on film," he said. "I also wanted to see how the coaches coach."

A hot commodity, Fox already holds offers from North Carolina, NC State, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, UCLA, Penn State, West Virginia, and Kentucky among others.

Fox added that NC State and North Carolina are currently his top two schools with the Tar Heels holding the lead.

"As of right now I could say [UNC is] leading," said Fox. "I've built a relationship, and I know everybody there. I like the team and the school itself."

Next up for Fox is a visit to Notre Dame on June 19th.

"Notre Dame is a great school, so I'm definitely considering them. I just need to go up there and see the coaches... see the facilities."

While he doesn't have a set timeframe for deciding, Fox does have a tentative plan in place for his official visits.

"I want to get my official visits in probably before the season," he said. "If it happens after then that's fine too."

A three-star prospect, Fox is currently rated the No. 103 defensive end in the country by Scout.com.
