Brosius, Glennon Form Bond

Pack Pride talks with Wolfpack commit Tyler Brosius after his official visit to NC State.

Tyler Brosius, a future quarterback at NC State, took his official visit over the weekend and bonded with one of the signal callers already on the Pack's roster.

The 6-3, 232 pound quarterback from Waynesville (NC) Tuscola passed for 3,500 yards and 39 touchdowns against only 10 interceptions during his senior year in 2009, and led his team to a 12-win season.

What did he think of his official visit over the weekend?

"It was a lot of fun," he recalled. "We were just touring the campus and eating all the time. Man, we ate a lot. It was just real laid back and a lot of fun. It was like a junior day, just a step up. We got to visit everybody and see all the coaches."

In meeting with coach Tom O'Brien and offensive coordinator Dana Bible, Brosius came away impressed but still unsure what his role will be when he arrives in Raleigh for good.

"They tossed a lot of options at me so I don't know if anything's official. They might want me to redshirt, but they want me prepared to come in and win a spot. It's all a guessing game. I'm sure I'll find out more after signing day.

"I had a meeting with coach Bible and we went over some of their big plays from the Florida State game and against Maryland. I got to see a bunch of stuff on their reads and he's slowly working in stuff I should be learning."

One of the highlights of the trip was meeting and being hosted by Mike Glennon, one of the Pack's two talented quarterbacks already on the roster.

"It was a lot of fun. We kept it real," he said of himself and Glennon. "We talked about football, about class and about the social life there. We just had a lot of fun and I guess you could say we became pretty good friends."

Brosius went on to say he remains fully committed to the Wolfpack and will sign his Letter of Intent in February.
