When Jordan Delegal committed to NC State in December he said he fell in love with the school and the ‘family atmosphere' he found there.
Six months later he is almost ready to suit up for the Wolfpack and is looking forward to that same environment.
"I committed to NC State because everyone there told me it was one big family," said the alum of Chaminade Madonna College Prep in Hollywood, Florida. "I think if we can get that together and do everything as one we're going to be fine."
Unfortunately, Delegal is still trying to enroll.
"I was planning on getting to NC State the second week of July, but they've put a hold on my ACT scores," he said. "Qualifying won't be an issue. They told me that with everything else I've done academically it shouldn't be a problem.
"They just said that I haven't paid something that needed to be paid yet. I didn't think that would be a problem, because I paid everything I needed to when I took the test. Once we get that over with I should get the grades and move in to school. I'm still shooting for the second week of July, but we'll see."
The Wolfpack coaching staff recruited Delegal as a safety, but he might not end up there.
"I really don't care where I play," he said. "I can play corner, safety or linebacker. I just want to get on the field and make an impact. Whatever the coaches want me to do, I'll do. I just think the team can do big things this year and I want to be able to say that I contributed to that."
Stats: Delegal tallied 75 tackles, five sacks, four forced fumbles, three interceptions, and two fumble recoveries during his senior season. A team captain, Delegal played outside linebacker and strong safety for Chaminade's 2005 state championship team.
Delegal Quote: "The coaches like my drive and toughness. I'm real physical, and I'll hit anybody. I have good natural ability, and they also like my instincts for playing football."
