Parham: "I Wanted To Be A Part Of That"

NC State quarterback commitment Dylan Parham talks about 2015 and his future with NC State.

Southeast (NC) Raleigh quarterback Dylan Parham committed to NC State roughly eight months ago which has allowed him to focus solely on preparing for his senior season.

He'll look to improve on a junior campaign that saw him complete 149 of 296 passes for 1,773 yards and 15 touchdowns. Parham added an additional 394 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground. The Bulldogs finished 2014 with a 4-7 record and Parham told Pack Pride recently that he's been hard at work during the off season to hopefully improve on that mark.

"I've been in the weight room trying to put on some weight and mainly just trying to work on accuracy and be more consistent. I had some times last year where I'd make some really great plays and then some okay plays after that. But I want to be more consistent and lead my team- basically just establish a presence as a leader and have a good season."

When he hasn't been in the weight room, Parham has been an active recruiter for the Wolfpack's class of 2016. As the quarterback commitment in that class, he knows that the coaches are looking at him to take a leadership role in helping to get other players on board.

"I've been keeping up with a lot of the internet pages like Pack Pride to see who State has offered," said Parham. "I'll message a lot of the guys on Twitter and see what they're up to and where their head's at. I just try to be real sociable with them when they come on campus and just try to build a connection with them."

So is there anyone in particular he's hoping to join him in 2016?

"Yeah, definitely- Cornell Powell from JH Rose, Diondre Overton from Page. Those are big time receivers."

While he focuses on 2015, Parham can't help but have an eye on the future at NC State and he feels confident in where the Pack is headed.

"I see NC State really being a BCS school in years to come- the class they brought in in 2015 with Nyheim and Roseboro and all of them. But that's one of the reasons I wanted to come here because I saw the direction they were going and I wanted to be a part of that.
