If there is a position NC State has the potential to see an increase in production, it is at wide receiver. Two starters have graduated, but the Pack returns a potential star in Donald Bowens and a host of tall, fast wideouts.
One of the headliners from NC State head coach Tom O'Brien's first recruiting class at NC State was WR Steven Howard from Olympic High School in Charlotte, NC. At 6-3, 190 pounds and boasting 4.55-second speed in the 40-yard dash, Howard was rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com and proved to be one of the state's top wideouts in 2006.

NC State will likely add two wide receivers in the class of 2007 and they filled half of those needs when they landed Steven Howard from Olympic High School earlier this year. At 6-2, 185 pounds, Howard is a terrific route runner and technically-sound receiver that hauled in 43 passes for 642 yards and six touchdowns en route to all conference honors as a junior.
