"I still did real well, but it wasn't enough to help my team out," Augustine said. "We finished 0-7, and our season was cut short because of the hurricanes down here."
Augustine, a three-star prospect and considered the No. 43 defensive end in the country according to Scout.com, garnered more than twenty offers but has narrowed his list down to five programs.
"NC State of course, South Carolina, Pittsburgh, Oklahoma, and Michigan State," he said. "I have a lot of offers from schools, but those five stick out the most. They have been recruiting me the hardest and are perceived as great football programs. They have good coaches and great facilities."
Augustine was hesitant to name a current leader, but pointed out that one ACC school has caught his attention.
"I don't know about a favorite, but NC State is up there," he said. "I met with the defensive end coach, and he's a great guy. Coach Stroud actually came by this week. I'm going up there January 7th, and it's a great college.
"My family likes NC State. They like the location and how down-to-earth the coaches are."
A relentless defender, Augustine chases everything down from the backside, gets upfield in a hurry, and has a lot of natural pass rushing skills. He is certainly aware of his strengths and weaknesses.
"My speed, relentlessness, and attitude are my strengths," he said. "I need to work on stunts and working with my hands, but my speed and footwork is great."
Although he hopes to have a chance to impact right away, Augustine is willing to do what is asked of him as a true freshman.
"Playing time is not a big factor for me, if the team needs me I'll be willing to do whatever they want me to do."
In addition to his January 6th NC State official visit, Augustine will travel to South Carolina on January 13th and visit the Pittsburgh Panthers on January 20th. He plans to schedule his remaining two visits, but has yet to do so. Don't expect an early decision from Augustine, as he will likely wait until signing day before choosing his college.
"I'm probably going to take all my visits and wait until signing day."
