Pack Offers In-State Defensive Ends

According to Charlotte (NC) Victory Christian assistant coach Don Robinson, NC State offered two of his players today.

According to Charlotte (NC) Victory Christian assistant coach Don Robinson, defensive ends Sylvester Crawford and Justin Foxx both received offers from NC State today.

Crawford and Foxx already held offers from West Virginia, and both are expected to land several more after attending camps this summer. North Carolina, Auburn, and South Carolina are expressing heavy interest.

Crawford, who checks in at 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, totaled 18 sacks during his junior campaign.

"He's a great up-field pass rusher," Victory Christian head coach Frank Crockett previously informed Inside Carolina's Don Callahan. "He puts you in the mind of a young man we had here a year and a half ago -- Kourtnei Brown. [He's a] speed rusher, great contain guy, heads up type player -- a player that gets a lot of sacks because of his athleticism.

"He's very smart, very intelligent. Great speed, great hands, great footwork -- those are his best assets as a defensive end."

Playing opposite Crawford was Foxx, who at 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds is a little thicker. During his junior season, Foxx (pictured) posted 11.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles, and his strength is an asset.

"Just like Sylvester [Crawford], he's very sleek, very fast, but Justin is more of a strength guy," coach Frank Crockett stated. "He's the type of guy that will get a lot of tackles – tackling running backs that are coming through his C gap. He can rush the passer, as well, but his strength is his best asset. He can bull rush with his strength, but also has enough speed to get around most offensive tackles."

Both Crawford and Foxx are expected to be in attendance at this weekend's Under Armour Combine, held in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Pack Pride will have more on the talented duo in the near future so stay tuned!
