"Well, State offered on Tuesday," Sweezy said. "The coach was text messaging with me back and forth on Monday and I ended up calling him. He asked what I would do if State offered, and I told him I would be pretty excited because it was a childhood dream. The next day I ended up calling him back and they offered me a scholarship."
Sweezy, who also holds offers from East Carolina and James Madison in addition to interest from Wake Forest, Virginia, and Virginia Tech, does not appear ready to jump on any offer just yet.
"It is probably going to be halfway through the season before I commit. I am going to see who else comes into the game, and I just want to see how everything plays out. Like I said, it has been my childhood dream. My grandfather played there as a fullback, so they're up there, yeah."
Sweezy tallied 115 tackles as a junior playing linebacker for Mooresville but projects to play along the defensive line in college.
