School: Lumberton (NC) High School
Position: Left Tackle
Eckerson Notes: The Pack has had mixed results when it's come to landing so called "legacy recruits". High profile prospects Justin London and Jonathan Hannah had Wolfpack roots but opted for UCLA and South Carolina, respectively. Daniel and Andrew Evans are the sons of former Pack QB Johnny Evans and ultimately landed at NC State. The latest Wolfpack legacy to earn an NC State offer is OL Hutch Eckerson from Lumberton (NC) High School and the Pack coaches would like nothing more than for this three-star prospect to blaze his own trail in Raleigh.
Eckerson's father, Todd, was a standout OT for the Pack from 1978-1982 and was ultimately drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. His son is being recruited for the same position and has emerged as one the top line prospects still on the Wolfpack's recruiting board. Eckerson measured in at 6-6, 251 pounds over the summer but has since bulked up to 270 pounds. He runs the 40-yard dash consistently in the 5.0-second range.
Eckerson has reportedly narrowed his list to Virginia, Virginia Tech, South Carolina, and NC State. He is looking to make a signing day decision.
