OL Andy Barbee
6-3, 285 pounds, 5.2-seconds in the 40
Crest High School, Shelby, NC
Prospect Ranking...3-star prospect and No. 23 player in NC by Scout.com
Accomplishments...One of the stalwarts on an offensive line that led Crest to the 3A state championship. Named all-state and selected to the Shrine Bowl.
NC State recruiter...Dick Portee...Academics...Projects as an academic qualifier
The recruiting scene...Interestingly, grew up a UNC and NC State fan. Pack offered in October and Barbee chose NC State over UNC, Wake Forest and South Carolina in November. He stayed true to the Wolfpack throughout the year.
Scouting report...Players with Barbee's size rarely play center but he has become a standout at the position. Technically sound, Barbee has a nasty streak and really gets after the opposing DL. Has good feet and the ability to pull. Had a very solid showing at the Shrine Bowl against some of South Carolina's top DL.
