Washington (DC) Gonzaga wide receiver Max Fisher committed to NC State back in early August and was able to make subsequent trips back to Raleigh for the Pack’s matchups with Miami and Notre Dame. Fisher made his official visit to State in December, and he talked about it with Pack Pride.
“It was great," said Fisher. "I got a chance to bond and hang with the other commits in my class and I got to hang out with a couple of players like Kelvin Harmon. He was my host and he was just talking to me about what it takes to make it at this level and that really helped me out. After he told me what he did and his routine this season and how long he practiced, I see why he had the season he did.”
In addition to learning the ins and outs with Harmon, Fisher also had a chance to spend time with his future position coach, wide receivers coach George McDonald.
“Coach McDonald is a great coach and he’s a real dude," said Fisher. "He tells you straight up about things and he’s going to help me and this team get better and I think that’s the same with every coach on the staff. They’re there to make us all better. They’re going to tell me what I need to do.”
Once he committed to NC State Fisher told Pack Pride that was the end of his recruitment, and he’s remained solid with the Wolfpack ever since.
“I shut everything down and I let all the schools know I was 100% committed. Maryland tried to talk to me, but I was solid to State.”
NC State finished 7-6 in 2016 but was tantalizingly close to a much better record. Fisher says he feels that’s a clear indication of where the Pack is headed.
“NC State is really about to take off," he said. "This season we missed a couple of games by just a few points. Against Clemson it was a field goal. Florida State was by a touchdown. Boston College was by a touchdown. I mean, we’re right there. If we get those wins we’re in the ACC championship. It’s just the beginning right here. We’re about to take off.”
Fisher is rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com.
