Fisher In No Hurry

Elvis Fisher is one of the top offensive line recruits in the Class of 2007 for NC State. While he is showing a lot of interest in the ACC program, the Wolfpack coaches might have to wait a while to find out where he will end up.

The 6-5, 310-pound lineman from St. Petersburg, Florida has several offers. Every school he has heard from is recruiting him as an offensive tackle, though he has the ability to play on both sides of the ball at the high school level.

"Not too much has changed recently," said Fisher on the topic of recruiting developments. "I just got back from a camp at Auburn, and I'm planning on camping at Florida. I had a great time at Auburn, but I'm not sure what my status with them is. They haven't officially offered yet but keep telling me that they'll keep a close watch out for me."

While Fisher does not have any favorites he has said that he is very interested in all the schools that have offered him thus far. That list includes Duke, NC State, Missouri and South Florida. What does he think of the Wolfpack?

"To be honest, I don't know as much about NC State as I should," said Fisher. "I know they have a lot of guys from Florida and I know they had a few first round picks in the draft this year. I think a couple of their coaches have spent some time down here in Florida, and it's an area they focus on a lot. It's a school I'm definitely looking at."

Fisher will have plenty of time to learn about NC State. While he plans on being in contact with coaches throughout the recruiting process, he will not make his decision for a while.

"I don't think I'm going to even start taking my official visits until after my senior season," he said. "I have no problem waiting this out and seeing what happens. The longer I wait and the more I know, the more educated my decision will be."

Fisher is rated a four-star prospect by Scout.com. He is a good student and should have no trouble qualifying to play at the next level.
