Vereen Receives N.C. State Offer

Slowly but surely Daryl Vereen is reaping the benefits of the track speed he displayed during his combine stops.

"N.C. State offered Friday when they stopped by," said Vereen. "I was excited about it, because really they were the first school that started talking to me. But, State is stacked at the running back position, but I think they are recruiting me for safety, though. I kind of want to play running back."

The fact that the Wolfpack coaching staff is hoping to move Vereen into the secondary could hurt their changes.

"I'll play safety, but I'm going to try to go somewhere that wants me to play running back first," said Vereen.

With that said, South Carolina still remains as Vereens current leader.

"[The new offer] don't really change anything much, South Carolina is still up there," said Vereen. "I'm still considering State, Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia."

In addition to N.C. State, South Carolina and Duke have extended scholarship offers to Vereen.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete from Huntersville (N.C.) North Mecklenburg ran 40-yard dash times of 4.35 and 4.38 seconds at the Shrine Bowl, and All-American Combines, respectively.

During the summer Vereen's speed will be on display during camps at North Carolina, N.C. State, Clemson, Virginia, and South Carolina.
