NAME: Nadir Thompson
HIGH SCHOOL: Southern Nash High School
NOTES: NC State landed a commitment on Friday from Bailey (NC) Southern Nash 2018 athlete Nadir Thompson, a player the Pack targeted extremely early because of his ability to impact on both sides of the ball.
"It feels like home," Thompson said of NC State. "I went to some other schools and they were okay, but none of them felt like NC State. I started thinking about it a lot, and I knew I was ready to commit and end my recruitment."
Thompson is one of the top sophomores in the state. Last season he rushed for 394 yards and six touchdowns, and he also caught 13 passes for 234 yards and four more scores. Defensively he totaled 40 tackles, four pass breakups, and two interceptions from his cornerback position.
Where will he play at NC State?
"We haven't figured it out yet," said Thompson. "They basically said we'll figure it out when I get there... if I play offense or defense."
NC State and Charlotte had offered Thompson, who was also hearing from Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Vanderbilt, and Purdue among others.
