NC State has landed a commitment from North Davidson (NC) sophomore kicker Chris Dunn who recently earned an offer after camping at NC State.
"Since day one I've been in love with [NC] State," said Dunn. "It's close to home, it felt like a family, the program is on the upswing, and they have the degree I'm looking for. It's great there... it clicked. I've fallen in love with NC State.
"It's the next step for me to play football and achieve some of my goals and dreams."
Dunn is kicking guru Chris Sailer's No. 1 ranked kicker in the 2018 class. He connected on 14-of-20 field goals as a sophomore for North Davidson, with a long of 48 yards. He also had 30 touchbacks and handled punting duties for the Knights.
Recently he was named the Chris Sailer 2016 Vegas XXVIII Overall Kicking Champion, which included kickers from the 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 classes. Sailer raved about Dunn.
"Chris is an outstanding kicker," said Sailer. "He has a strong leg and kicks with excellent technique and consistency. Field goals are smooth and accurate off the ground. He gets great height on his ball. A fierce competitor that does his best under pressure. Kickoffs are strong and consistent. Also a very capable punter.
"One of the most determined competitors we have every had. Chris kicks with extreme confidence. A great looking athlete with a bright future. Chris is a pleasure to work with. He will be a scholarship pick in this class without a doubt. Big time prospect."
Pack Pride will have more on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
