Pittsboro (NC) Northwood athlete and NC State commitment Tobias Palmer impressed throughout the day.
Palmer worked with the running backs at the combine, and he looked explosive during one-on-one drills.
He also showed the ability to catch the football flaring out of the backfield.
Although he plays tailback for Northwood High School, Palmer could end up as a defensive back on the next level.
Palmer was NC State's first commitment in the 2008 class, choosing the Wolfpack over interest from Florida State, Miami, North Carolina, and Virginia Tech among others.
He led the area in rushing with 1,500 yards and 31 all-purpose touchdowns, including 24 on the ground. He rushed for 1,543 yards and 22 touchdowns as a sophomore.
