NC State landed a big commitment today when Columbia (MO) Rock Bridge cornerback Bryce Banks picked the Wolfpack. Banks was previously committed to Missouri before opening back up his recruitment.
He announced his commitment on Twitter.
Banks also confirmed the new with Pack Pride. When asked why NC State, Banks gave a simple answer.
"My whole thing is why not NC State," he replied. "I felt like the atmosphere was good, and the coaching staff was even better. I connected with coach Barlow and they are really detail-oriented. That's where I thought I felt best in defensively... their scheme, and academically I fit in well."
Banks, who will enroll in January, also held offers from Missouri and Illinois among others. Checking in at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, he is being primarily recruited to play cornerback for NC State.
He is regarded as a three-star recruit by Scout.com.
Pack Pride will have more on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
