One of North Carolina's top football prospects, Charlotte Victory Christian standout defensive end Justin Foxx attended NC State's camp over the weekend. He came away impressed with the Wolfpack.

"I went to NC State on Friday for their camp," said Foxx. "That's the last camp I went to. I was going to do some workouts, but I had a sore hamstring. I was still able to visit with the coaches, check out the facilities, and tour the campus. I liked it at NC State."

Foxx, who has already camped at Duke and Clemson, talked in-depth about his NC State visit.

"The thing I liked was I got to talk a lot with the coaches and get to know them better," he stated. "I talked with the defensive line coach Keith Willis, my main recruiter, Jim Bridge, and head coach Tom O'Brien. It was great getting to meet coach O'Brien... they were all great guys. They told me that they are looking for defensive ends that can come in and play and they think I can come in and help them out."

Up next for Foxx will be a camp at West Virginia on June 29th and a July camp at Virginia Tech. As it stands now, he holds offers from West Virginia, NC State, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Duke, and Virginia Tech. Does he have a leader?

"It's too early to tell," he said. "My top schools are the six that have offered me. I'm not sure when I will make a decision, but I think I want to make it before my senior seaon. I'm not in a rush though. When I know where I want to go, that is when I'll commit."

Foxx has offers from a couple of in-state programs, but distance doesn't appear to be a factor. He's looking closely at the coaches he could end up playing for.

"I would like to stay close to home but distance isn't a factor," said Foxx. "The biggest factor for me will be how I get along with the coaches, how they conduct themselves, and their commitment to winning. You don't have to be a winning program right now, but I want to see that you are striving to get better. I also want to see how they'll use me on defense and how much they really want me."

As a junior, Foxx teamed with Sylvester Crawford to give Victory Christian one of the best pass-rushing duos in the state of North Carolina. In seven games, the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder 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," Victory Christian head coach Frank Crockett previously 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."

Like Foxx, Crawford holds a host of scholarship offers. Is the duo looking to play together on the next level?

"It's a possibility," said Foxx. "We have some of the same offers, so it could happen. We haven't talked a lot about it though."
