2004 Outlook

- Andre Maddox arrived at NC State with very little fanfare from analysts that cover recruiting. In fact, most observers believed NC State to be the only team to offer a firm scholarship to Maddox. In three years he has become one of the better Safety's to ever play at NC State. Maddox's production has grown steadily each year at NC State and, in addition to being a team leader in production on the field, will be looked to for leadership off the field from a blossoming Wolfpack defense. Although not considered a player with blazing speed, Maddox simply finds a way to make plays and rarely gets caught out of position.

Recognition potential

- Maddox is a sure-fire candidate for All-ACC preseason honors and should get some all-american mention as well. Exiting high school Maddox was rated the No. 86 S in the nation. Headed into his senior season, it's hard to rate more than a few Safeties ahead of Maddox. If he can continue building on his super junior season, Maddox could become a serious contender for the Thorpe Award.
