NC State will kick off their summer camps later this month. Hundreds of high school players will be in attendance and their performance will be critical in landing an offer from the Wolfpack. Pack Pride has already taken a look at the quarterbacks hoping to earn an offer from NC State and today we have part two of a two part series breaking down 20 rising seniors that have a legitimate shot at earning a scholarship from State.
6-2, 195 pounds, 4.5-seconds in the 40
Westover High School, Fayetteville, NC
Notes...Williams has seen his stock take off this spring with impressive showings at a couple of combines. Has a good combination of size and speed and is a long, rangy defensive back prospect. The Pack has recruited him consistently and he is another legitimate contender to earn a scholarship from NC State at some point. Duke and Wake Forest have already offered and Virginia, East Carolina, Clemson and South Carolina are also heavily involved.
QB/ATH William Brown
6-3, 205 pounds, 4.51-seconds in the 40
Greene Central High School, Snow Hill, NC
Notes...Brown has some of the best measurables of any prospect in the state. His combination of size and speed will land him some division one offers before all is said and done. If he'll stay open to working out at other positions, he could really see interest in his services take off. Brown is so raw at QB it would appear to be a longshot for most schools to offer him at that position. He would probably make a solid safety or linebacker on the next level. UNC was Brown's childhood favorite growing up.
6-1, 220 pounds, 4.6-seconds in the 40
Northwest High School, Littleton, NC
Notes...Hedgepeth was very productive at running back last year, rushing for over 1,000 yards. That athletic ability should serve him well as he makes a run at earning an NC State offer at linebacker- his likely position in college. Hedgepeth performed well at the Adidas camp in Raleigh and should get a close look from the Pack coaches in June. He currently has NC State out front and is also considering Auburn and Virginia Tech.
DL Kemory Mann
6-2, 265 pounds, 5.0-seconds in the 40
Northwood High School, Pittsboro, NC
Notes..Hard working defensive tackle prospect that plays with a solid base and tenacious attitude. Will probably need a really good showing at NC State's camp to earn a scholarship offer as the Pack appears to be very selective in offered DT's this year. Mann is currently favoring East Carolina, Virginia Tech and UNC.
RB/CB Bobby Morrison
5-8, 185 pounds, 4.4-seconds in the 40
West Iredell High School, Statesville, NC
Notes...Behind the scenes we've heard that Morrison is a kid that State really likes. He has a super personality and while he may not possess ideal height, Morrison makes up for it with legitimate speed. He will likely get a workout with NC State at running back but we think he'll get a long, hard look at cornerback as well. It won't be surprising to see Morrison earn a Wolfpack offer at some point.
LB Jared Seate
6-1, 210 pounds, 4.7-seconds in the 40
Olympic High School, Charlotte, NC
Notes...Seate was a very productive linebacker as a junior. He has a solid build but his speed may be a question mark. Obviously the Wolfpack coaches will be watching that closely at camp. Seate is teammates with OL Andrew Wallace who has already earned a Wolfpack offer. Seate lists NC State as his top school and is also considering Virginia Tech, Virginia and Wake Forest.
DE Baird Godley
6-3, 235 pounds, 4.76-seconds in the 40
NW Guilford High School, Greensboro, NC
Notes...Godley has received a lot of individual recruiting attention this spring from several division one schools including NC State, UNC, East Carolina, Wake Forest, Florida State, Marshall and Tennessee. Godley was sick at the Scout.com combine held earlier this year so Pack Pride has not had a chance to evaluate him. Godley currently likes NC State, Tennessee, East Carolina and UNC.
6-4, 270 pounds, 5.1-seconds in the 40
Independence High School, Charlotte, NC
Notes...Independence head coach Tom Knotts has seen his fair share of division one prospects and he really raved about Thompson during the spring. Thompson moves fairly well for his size but will have to have a great showing at camp to earn an offer from the Wolfpack. Thompson really likes the Pack but he says Ball State is recruiting him the hardest currently.
CB Rahkeem Morgan
6-1, 175 pounds, 4.45-seconds in the 40
Asheville (NC) High School
Notes...Lined up as a quarterback for Asheville last year but projects as a cornerback or safety on the next level. Has good speed and his athleticism will get him serious interest from division one coaches. Morgan already has an offer from Marshall and is also considering NC State, UNC, East Carolina and Duke.
WR TJ Graham
6-0, 180 pounds, 4.4-seconds in the 40
Wakefield High School, Raleigh, NC
Notes...Graham is one of the fastest prospects in North Carolina and may have the best combination of speed and size in the state. Didn't put up huge stats as a junior but has a load of potential. Has solid hands but he could get a look at defensive back as well. NC State was his early favorite but Florida State has made a recent push. It would not be surprising to see him make an early commitment.
