Pack Evaluating Charlotte QB

Charlotte (NC) Providence quarterback Price Litton is on the Pack's radar and talks about his interest in State.

NC State's coaches play it safe when it comes to offering scholarships to quarterbacks. Could Price Litton receive an offer from the Pack?

It may be too early to tell what exactly is going to happen with Litton with regard to NC State or any other schools. The 6-2, 203-pound prospect from Charlotte (NC) Providence is still waiting for his first offer to come in but he has created quite the buzz on the recruiting trails.

Offers often come in bunches, so it may just be that schools are waiting for someone to open the floodgates. If NC State were to offer Litton, the talented junior admits he would be interested.

"Actually I went to the last junior day they had," Litton recalled. "That was good. I haven't heard as much from them as some others, but they're definitely one of the newer schools that have been calling my coach. It's another option and something to look into, especially being an in-state school and a good football program.

"It seems like the coaches do a good job of producing good, quality quarterbacks. I'll see if they come by the school during the spring. Maybe I'll take a visit for a game if they do. Come April 15 they (coaches) can start calling me, so we'll see who's really interested. That's when I'll start to narrow it down.

"My visit up there was good. I got to hang out with some of the players. I thought they did a pretty good job (hosting him). The food was great. They've got pretty neat facilities and it's a big stadium. They're definitely headed in the right direction."

The well-spoken quarterback has been hearing from schools all over the country of late. Previously he had been hearing from regional schools in the ACC and SEC, but now he has started receiving interest from the likes of Wisconsin and Notre Dame. He has even spoken with offensive coordinator Norm Chow of UCLA, and formerly of NC State, a couple of times. West Virginia and Northwestern are also interested.

"As of right now I'm really open to everything," he said. "I don't want to narrow my options yet so I'm keeping it open. I'll take all five of my official visits and get a feel for everything. I would like to stay somewhere in the South but I might decide that I want to go north or somewhere else."

As a junior, Litton threw for 1,400 yards and 10 touchdowns while adding close to 500 yards and an additional five scores on the ground.
