Hometown: Teachey, NC
High School: Wallace-Rose Hill
Stats: As a senior, Irving leads the Bulldogs with over 125 tackles, four sacks, and two interceptions. He is also a Shrine Bowl selection.
Irving Quote: "A big factor was academics. They have my major, and State has a really good football program. It is also close to home, so my family can come watch me play.
"It was all about education for me. State is one of the top schools around here so I figured where else could I be playing the sport I love and studying the major I love."
Scouting Report: "Aggression, aggresion, aggresion. Nate flies around to the ball, and is constantly in relentless pursuit after a quick read of the play. Does a good job shedding blocks and making the play. Need to see him to a few things better in his form tackling, but there is no question that he has the potential to be a star in the right system." -- Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Miller Safrit
