Greene Recaps Visit to NC State

Pack Pride talks with Irmo (SC) tailback Mustafa Greene after his official visit to NC State.

NC State’s available slots for the class of 2010 has narrowed to just a few with Irmo (SC) standout Mustafa Greene being one of the top prospect left on the board to fill one of those positions.

Of late, Greene has focused his attention on NC State and Rutgers. With a visit to Rutgers already under his belt, Greene made the tip to Raleigh this past weekend to check out the Wolfpack program.

Pack Pride caught up with Greene following his visit on Sunday. All of the weekend activities were over and Greene was still excited about how things had gone.

"It was a good experience I'd say," said Greene. "We went to the basketball game and then we were just chilling with the coaches and players. We didn't do too much else besides that.

"My host was Curtis Underwood and me and him clicked. Coach (Tom) O'Brien is a very laid back guy. He's trying to get a good class up there. I think he's a good guy.

"Their running backs coach (Jason Swepson) has really good experience. He's good at what he does. He seems like he's a good guy, too. All of them are good guys."

After all was said and done, Greene said he felt his visit to NC State was an excellent experience. He told Pack Pride that Rutgers and NC State are the only schools he is looking at right now, and that they are currently "both equal" in his mind.

"I thought it (NC State) was a nice school. I thought it was what it was supposed to be like. It was a good visit. It's a great school and a great football program. The players were cool. I could see myself there."

Greene, ranked the No. 43 running back in the nation by Scout.com, plans on making his decision on National Signing Day.
