Recruiting Scene: Sculthorpe earned early offers from Charlotte and East Carolina. However an offer from NC State prior to the start of his junior season was all Sculthorpe needed and he committed to the Pack just a few weeks after attending the Wolfpack Warrior event.

Why NC State? ”It’s a good school and the coaches recruited me hard,” said the 6-foot-2, 285-pound Sculthorpe. “I really like the academic side of the school and my brother also goes there and he loves it. So it seemed like a good choice for me.

Picked NC State Over: East Carolina and Charlotte

Scouting Report: ”No. 1, he loves the game. No. 2, he loves to compete. And he’s just a great kid and a great athlete. For a guy his size, he moves extremely well, is good with his hands and very coachable. He’s also very strong and has great feet. I think him being a wrestler helps, too. He’s got a lot going for him.” -Topsail Head Coach Wayne Inman
