NC State has consistently been one of the top players for Hillgrove (GA) Powder Springs athlete Synjyn Days. After making a visit to State for junior day earlier in the year, Days was back in Raleigh for he Wolfpack’s camp this past Saturday. The rising senior talked with Pack Pride about the experience.
“It was super, just the whole experience of working with coach Bible and coach Reed. They were super and I loved when I had the one on one session with the defensive back’s coach and the defensive coordinator. Most of the coaches came over there and it was very fun."
While at NC State, Days worked out at numerous positions for the Wolfpack coaches. He proved to be a versatile player and felt that he made a strong case for an offer although he’s not quite sure which position State may prefer him at.
“The position is still kind of up in the air. I did well at quarterback and then the one on one session at defensive back, I did well there so they’re not sure. I also worked out at running back and did well there, too.
“I’m open to play any position right now but I would like a chance to play quarterback. But if they say that’s not it then I’d be happy to play defense.”
Another factor in Day’s recruiting will be his brother, Jabari. Just a sophomore currently, the younger Days has a tremendous build and seemed to catch the eye of LB coach Andy McCollum. The two hope to continue their football careers in college.
“My brother is a year below me. He plays linebacker and fullback. They said that they want him and wish he was a 2010 player so they could go ahead and offer him. So, I think he’ll have an offer from them by the end of the season. That’s one of the intangibles for me is picking a school that’s also going to recruit my brother.”
So where does Days stand with his latest visit in the books. For now, it appears a number of schools are still solidly in the running.
"I like State. They were my number one after junior day and right now, since Oklahoma State, Toledo Georgia Tech and Indiana have offered me, all those schools are in the running for my commitment.”
Days added that he hopes to make a decision in the next month.
“I’ll probably commit in July and if not then, then probably a couple of weeks into the football season.”
Rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com, Days plans to attend additional camps this summer at Florida State, Miami and Louisville.
