Sources have indicated to StateFans that Hargrave (VA) Military Academy Defensive Lineman Brandon Setzer did not make it to Raleigh for his official visit to NC State.
Brandon will likely re-schedule his visit for next weekend, January 16th, and should have a decision shortly afterwards.
Greenville (NC) Rose RB Andre Brown has completed his final official visit to NC State, and it was a productive trip for the nation's #9 running back.
"Oh, it was fun and everyone was down-to-earth," Brown said. "My hosts were Manny Lawson and AJ Davis. Those guys were cool and showed me everything about the school."
So what separates NC State and Virginia, the other favorite, right now?
"I'd have to say the fact that UVA doesn't have a Running backs coach is big. I really like [NCSU Running Backs] Coach Portee at NC State. Another thing is the facilities at [NC] State... that separates them too."
Sarasota (FL) Booker Running Back/Athlete Terrance Jones took his first official visit to NC State and the Wolfpack impressed the All-State Running Back.
"Yes, it was a good visit and I had fun," Jones told StateFans. "I really liked the facilities, and the people there were nice. It was just weird because it was cold and I'm not too used to that being from Florida."
Did the Wolfpack jump in the lead for his services?
"No, I'm going to wait until after the visits before making a decision or anything like that."
Kane Hannaford completed his official visit to NC State Sunday. In the pre-visit interview by StateFans, the Florida OL said he might commit on his visit. We followed up with Kane to see if that happened.
Did Kane commit while in Raleigh? "I haven't had anytime to sit down with my parents and talk about it. We will probably talk about it this week. Coach Barry and Coach Demarest are coming down this week so we will talk to them."
Camden (NJ) Offensive Lineman Nyere Aumaitre just returned home from his fourth official visit... was it his best?
"That's tough to say, but I know I liked it a lot," Aumaitre told StateFans. "I was going to make a decision this week if I didn't like the visit, but I liked it. So now I want to see if my mom will drive down to NC State this weekend so she can see what it's like and tell me what she thinks."
Aumaitre went into the trip with Iowa as his leader, but is that still the case?
"No, I'm even now and don't have a favorite."
Ell Ash completed his third official visit this past weekend and returned home a little confused by it all.
According to Ash, the trip to NC State went "good" just like his previous visits to Pittsburgh and Clemson. "Yea it was good," said Ash. "I was a little confused when I got back."
