Florida Wideout Has Pack On Top

Lauderdale Lakes (FL) Anderson wide receiver Gregory Jean talks with Pack Pride about his recent visit to NC State.

Gregory Jean isn't trying to keep a poker face. He hasn't made a commitment to any school yet but Jean (6-1, 175) is also willing to share his most candid thoughts on recruiting and what he's thinking about the future.

Lauderdale Lakes (FL) Anderson's soon to be senior wideout has a lot of offers but just one from a program in a major conference. That school is NC State so it shouldn't be too surprising that Jean has the Pack at the top of his list.

It's the intensity of Jean's interest in NC State that stands out though.

"I'd put my interest in NC State right up there at 100%. It's very high. They're very high up there. It's some other schools still coming too, but right now I've got my eyes on NC State."


Jean didn't say what the hold up is when it comes to committing. He says he has an offer from NC State and he was at the school for their Alpha Wolf Showcase, a tour and some time with the coaches. Jean left NC State still uncommitted but based on the tune he's singing he might like to change that soon.

The recent stop at State was Jean's first time on campus. He had heard about what to expect and says the visit itself lived up to his expectations and exceeded them.

"They had showed me some interest before the visit and the coach told me to come up there to see if I liked it or not. The best part about the visit for me was the stadium and seeing that. That and how they've organized their program."

Talking to the coaches was another thing Jean enjoyed.

"I talked to Coach McDonald, I talked to the head coach and I talked to the offensive coordinator. They talked to me about the offense and they said I'd fit in great. They run the exact same offense that my high school runs. They talked about the depth chart and how I could come in and help with the program if I stay there four years."

Jean said he didn't get to see much of Raleigh or the area around the school outside of the normal football area. But what he saw, he liked.
