"Quentin Brown just got to N.C. State five days ago. The towering 18-year-old came from Orlando to play defensive end for the Wolfpack.

He found himself playing defense Friday night in front of his dorm building. Brown was talking on his cell phone when a Nissan Altima with heavily tinted windows rolled up behind him.

The driver stayed put while a man wearing a bandana around his face jumped out.

"He jumped out of the car and was like 'empty out your pockets,'" Brown said.

Brown stood up, and he believes his size startled the suspect. The suspect shot at Brown. Luckily, the bullet only grazed him."


Brown inked with NC State in February and arrived in Raleigh a few days ago for the summer session. The Orlando (Fl.) Edgewater star signed with the Wolfpack after considering offers from Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, and Georgia among others.
