Updated NC State Scholarship Listing

StateFans updates the players reporting a football scholarship offer from NC State.

The May evaluation period has come and gone and as expected, NC State has rolled out several new offers according to published reports. StateFans breaks down the complete list of prospects currently reporting an offer.

Note- All information in this report has been collected from player interviews and is in no way connected with any actual recruiting list of the NC State coaching staff.

Quarterbacks

1.QB Harrison Beck- High school coach is Pack QB Jay Davis' dad. Has made unofficial trip to NC State but Pack appears to be on the outside looking in. However, the connections are in place for the Pack to move up. Update- Favors Florida State, Nebraska, NC State, Virginia and Iowa. Several other teams in the mix as well. Update-Favors MIA, NEB and NCS. Huskers appear to be the big leader.

2.QB Ryan Perrilloux- State not a major player. Appears to be a major LSU lean.

3. QB Carlton Hill- Listing State as a team under consideration and plans to camp at State.

Running Backs

4.RB Toney Baker- Baker has maintained a top five of NC State, UNC, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Tennessee. Proximity to home will probably be a factor but this is a battle that we really feel State could win.

5.RB Antone Smith- May be tough to get him away from Miami but should the Canes land another RB before Smith commits, the door then swings open quite a bit. Pack appears to be a strong No. 2 choice currently.

6.FB/LB Conredge Collins- Another player that is extremely high on NC State and one the Pack could definitely land. He was scheduled to make an unofficial visit to State this week. The caveat in these battles, as always, are the Big Three in Florida.

7.RB Richie Rich- Favors Maryland, Oklahoma, Duke, NC State and Wake Forest Update-Recent report has Maryland and NC State out front.

8.RB Mike Davis- Currently open but has more than a dozen offers from the likes of Auburn, Alabama, USC, UNC, Wake Forest, NC State and others.

9. RB JC Neal- Currently favors NC State and Virginia Tech. The Pack has a huge chance with Neal. He will camp with State.

Offensive Linemen

10.OL Julian Williams- Pack first and only offer and most feel he's NC State bound. However, he could ride the process out which always could potentially open the door to another team.

11.OL Michael Oher- Mammoth OL prospect that has already visited State. The Pack is currently in his top two and all indications are State has a major chance at landing this big fella. Update- Pack has reportedly fallen outside top five or borderline at best. Some questions about grades.

12.OL Curtis Crouch- Another kid that the Pack was first to offer but they certainly won't be the last. Most reports have NC State leading but this is one we'll have to keep an eye on. Particularly Tennessee.

13.OL Antonio North- Recently visited State and the Pack is very near the top of his favorites list but admittedly, State hasn't had a huge amount of success landing Virginia's top talent. North would go a long ways towards changing that. Update- Favors Virginia Tech and NC State big. Will visit both in the very near future and a decision could come shortly thereafter.

14.OL Christopher Barney- Another Miami-area big-time prospect. NC State is in his early top five but this will be a year long battle. Update- Miami and NC State are tied for the lead.

15.OL Brian Roche- One of the nation's top OL. NC State not currently in Roche's top five.

16. OL Ronnie Wilson- From alma mater of Sterling Hicks and James Martin. Likes NC State, Miami, Florida and Pittsburgh.

17. OL Simon Codrington- Will be a huge Pack target all year. Favors Miami over Florida, NC State and Auburn.

18. OL Eddie Haupt- Pack not currently in Haupt's top 5.

19. OL Jason Kacinko- Wide open at the current time.

 

Wide Receivers

20.WR Josh Briscoe- Probably the consensus No. 2 WR in NC. Has not been very open about recruiting favorites but we feel confident that State is in his top five. Tennessee could be a major threat.

21.WR Mohammed Massaquoi- Many feel the No. 1 WR in NC. Massaquoi has shied away from naming favorites so it will most likely be later in the year before we know where he stands.

22.WR Nyan Boateng - Early mention as one of the nation's top WR's. Pack recently offered and not listed in top five currently.

23.WR Todd Dorcelus- Favors Michigan over Rutgers, Virginia, Maryland and Syracuse.

24.WR Rendrick Taylor- Favors Clemson and Florida State. The Pack has received some mention but doesn't seem to be a huge player right now.

25.WR James McDonald- NC State has maneuvered its way into McDonald's top 5.

Tight Ends

26.TE/DE Jonathan Hannah- Told StateFans he favors Virginia Tech and NC State. We think State is in great shape here but will have to win him over based on the recruiting job they do with him. Although his dad played at State, we don't think that'll automatically make him a slam dunk for the Pack. Could also play DE or OG. Update- we think NC State, Virginia Tech and Florida State lead although Hannah lists about seven teams that he favors.

Athletes

27.ATH Montario Hardesty- Teammate of OL Julian Williams and we think State's in great here. Pack coaches have a great relationship at New Bern High School and they could play to their favor. Florida State appears to be the main competition. Should he decide to stay in-state- lookout for the Pack.

28.ATH Justin King- Super prospect but State not receiving much mention. Appears Big-10 bound.

29.ATH Michael Ray Garvin- Pack only recently offered Garvin and are playing catchup to numerous other teams.

30. Re'Quan Boyette- No faves yet but grew up fan of UNC. State and Duke have offered. Pack is a major player.

Defensive Tackles

31.DT Jeffrey Owens- State is in his top five and actively recruiting several of his teammates. However, Owens will probably be one of Florida's most highly recruited DT's and State has struggled in the past landing these types of prospects. Convincing him to camp at State could be a huge help. Update- Owens plans to camp at NC State.

32.DT Melvin Alaeze- Pack not currently in top 5.

33.DT Vladimir Richard- Currently favors Miami, Florida, Florida State, Georgia and NC State.

Defensive Ends

34.DE Greg Peterson- Peterson is a DE prospect similar to NC State commit Chad Green and both play together at Hinds Junior College.

35.DE Kyle Newell- teammate of Pack commit John Bedics and one of Pennsylvania's best. Has listed State in his top five previously but it will be a war to land him. He favors Maryland, NC State, Penn State, Syracuse, West Virginia, Nebraska and Pittsburgh.

36.DE Hivera Green- Pack recently offered and Green has made unofficial visit to State but Oklahoma leads with the Pack being in and out of Green's early top five.

37. DE Everette Brown- Stock has soared this spring with State earning a solid spot in Brown's top 5.

38.DE Richard Gordon- Could play TE or DE. Favors FSU, NC State, Ohio State and Nebraska.

Linebacker

39.LB Derek Nicholson- Father played at UNC and brother is at Florida State. At this point we're not overly optimistic.

40.LB Eugene Hayes- One of Florida's fastest rising prospects and has quite a bit of interest in NC State. Should Florida State offer, getting him out of Florida could be next to impossible. If they don't, State has a super chance. Update- Florida State offers but Pack still maintains lead.

41.LB Todd Cox- One of Tennessee's top LB with over a half dozen major offers. He says he's wide open currently.

42.LB Steve Johnson- Listing Pack in top 5. Not 100% sure on offer but he's reporting it so we'll list him for now.

43.LB Dakota Walker- Not currently listing any favorites.

44.LB Ryan Stamper- Stamper currently favors Clemson, USC, Auburn, NC State and UNC. He will camp at State.

45.LB Gerald Williams- Fast rising prospect who lists Miami, Florida State, NC State, Georgia and LSU as his top five. Could also play DE. Will camp at State.

46.LB Elijah Hodge- Earned a Pack offer recently and favors Miami, Iowa, Pittsburgh, NC State and Duke. Good student and has a brother currently at Iowa. State has never landed a player from Dillard High School

Safety

47.S Kenneth Phillips- Another of Florida's elite prospects but the type that State typically has been able to land an official visit with. Most would consider the Pack's chances to be slim as things stand currently.

48.S Demetrice Morley- Another Killian standout which is always a plus for NC State. The Pack was first to offer and have a real shot here. Update- Favors Florida over Michigan, Miami, NC State and Oklahoma.

Cornerbacks

49.CB Chris Chancellor- Favors Florida State, Miami, NC State, Florida and LSU among others.

Kicker

50.PK Justin Sparks- NC State and Ole Miss have offered and those two lead.
