The biggest recruit to make the list for NC State is Chapel Hill (NC) offensive lineman Rob Crisp. Checking in at 6-foot-8 and 300 pounds, Crisp is rated No. 36 overall and the No. 5 offensive tackle in the country. Regarded as the top rising senior in the state of North Carolina, Crisp is the highest-rated in-state recruit.
Boasting a tremendous frame, quick feet and above average athleticism, Crisp has landed better than 30 scholarship offers from across the nation. He has yet to come out and name a leader, but NC State, South Carolina, Duke, Georgia, North Carolina, and Florida appear to be in the mix.
Crisp has been a fixture at NC State's home games as his guardians are season ticket holders, but he has been quick to point out that he will evaluate all of his options before making a decision.
"I try to give everyone the notice that just because I live with State fans doesn't mean I'm actually going to go to State," Crisp previously told Pack Pride. "They love State and they would love for me to go there but they're not pressuring me to go there. I just want to try to get people to understand that but people are going to think what they want to.
"I've always liked State. They've always impressed me. When I went for junior day it was much like it's been before. The coaches treated me like I was one of the players. They actually care for me. I'm always impressed with State and they always impress me when I go over."
Crisp and teammate Pete Singer visited Georgia over the weekend. Originally Crisp was expected to commit later this year but rumors have been circulating that he could make an earlier decision.
King, a defensive end from Greensboro (NC) recently listed NC State in his top five along with North Carolina (leader), Georgia, California, and Clemson. He also holds offers from Duke, ECU, Maryland, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
McCray, a defensive end/tight end out of Lynchburg (VA), holds a dozen offers from programs such as NC State, LSU, UCLA, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, and North Carolina. He recently stated NC State, LSU, UCLA, and Virginia Tech were pursuing extremely hard.
Allen, a safety from Greensboro (NC), landed an early offer from NC State and attended the Wolfpack's Junior Day but appears to be leaning to Alabama and Clemson.
