Domonique Noble has an impressive offer list but for now just three schools seem to be sticking out.
Pack Pride caught up with the 6-1, 185-pound cornerback from Mount Ulla (NC) West Rowan this week and learned that NC State is in a good position. Noble does plan on listening to what at least a few other schools have to say, but the Pack has to feel good about its chances.
"As of right now without visiting other schools I would say it's Georgia Tech, NC State and then Wake Forest," Noble said, admitting that the Yellow Jackets would be his top option for now. "I don't know how things are going to go when I go visit Penn State and Notre Dame yet."
It would seem that those five schools, then, are in the lead for Noble, with the three schools from the Atlantic Coast Conference holding an advantage because of his familiarity with them.
"I haven't been to NC State recently but I do plan on getting up there real soon," he said. "I've been talking to them a little bit. Me and coach Horton and coach Reed have a real good relationship. We talk and laugh and have a good time when we talk.
"I've been out there before. I went out there for the spring game."
Noble doesn't plan on making his decision anytime soon but he did say he would like to have a decision made by the end of the summer. He left open the possibility of waiting until the fall just so he can be sure of whatever decision he announces.
What is it about Georgia Tech that has caused the Yellow Jackets to top his list?
"The coaches are pretty cool. All the coaches I've been with are cool, really. I like the people down there. There's plenty of stuff to do."
Noble is rated a there-star prospect and the No. 55 safety in the nation by Scout.com although NC State is recruiting him as a cornerback.
Jackets, Pack Battle for Noble
