Prospect Ranking: No. 38 player and two-star prospect according to Scout.com, No. 139 DE in the nation by ESPN
Accomplishments: Sweezy tallied an amazing 195 tackles, six sacks, 14 tackles for loss and four fumble recoveries in 2006. Sweezy earned all-area and all-region honors for his efforts. As a junior, he had 114 tackles.
Academics: Sweezy projects as an academic qualifier.
The Recruiting Scene: East Carolina was the first school to offer Sweezy but NC State wasted no time in joining the Pirates after watching him at the Pack's one day camp last summer. Sweezy mulled the Wolfpack's offer for about a month before committing to NC State in August of last year. He also had an offer from James Madison.
Scouting Report: "Sweezy is a player with a great frame, a terrific motor and good instincts from his linebacker position scraping through to the ball and getting through traffic well. With his added weight he could be a dangerous player in space this year, but with that motor and a quick first step he certainly looks like a future defensive end in college." -– Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Miller Safrit
