Chandler, a 6-foot-6, 340-pounder from North Plainfield, New Jersey, started at defensive tackle last season for Fork Union Military Academy but is slated to play offensive line for the Wolfpack. Originally a member of NC State's 2009 recruiting class, Chandler prepped at Fork Union after failing to qualify academically. He is enrolled at NC State as a true freshman.
Like Chandler, Bryan Underwood was also a member of the 2009 recruiting class but failed to qualify academically. He didn't play football in 2009 while squaring away his academics. Underwood caught 56 balls for 729 yards and 11 touchdowns his last two seasons at University Heights (OH) Cleveland Heights High School. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder also has a chance to contribute on special teams and is enrolled as a true freshman.
NC State had four other signees, Mikel Overgaard, David Akinniyi, A.J. Ferguson, and Deion Roberson, enroll in January.
