NC State recruiter...Curt Cignetti...Academics...Cash has work to do but should qualify

The recruiting scene...Palmer went mostly unnoticed most of his senior year but generated late interest after starring for Byrd, a 4A power in the state of North Carolina.  After an impressive week at the Shrine Bowl, Palmer landed an offer from the Wolfpack and committed.  He chose NC State over ECU and North Carolina.

Scouting report...Palmer is an aggressive interior line prospect who has very good athleticism, much like current NC State defensive tackle "Tank" Tyler.  He has quick feet, a great frame, above-average strength and is explosive.  He needs to work on technique and staying low, but we think Palmer is a steal for NC State.

Guru Comments: "One of the things you want from an interior lineman is an ability to play well in a confined space and an ability to pickup and maintain blocks. Palmer does a great job of doing just that, absorbing long arms and picking up things going on at the second level." -- ACC Recruiting Analyst Miller Safrit
