This weekend NC State hosted 4-star 2016 Inside Linebacker Elysee Mbem-Bosse on an official visit. Mbem-Bosse included the Wolfpack in his Top-5 list back on August 9th. I caught up with Mbem-Bosse last night to get his take on how the official visit in Raleigh went.
“It went great. I had a great time seeing my former teammate Defensive Tackle Quentez Johnson,” said Mbem-Bosse. “I had a great time with the coaches. I had a great time at the diner. I had a great time meeting everybody.”
Mbem-Bosse plans on taking official visits to all of the schools on his Top-5 list (Auburn, Wake Forest, Michigan, USC, NC State), but he chose to take his first one at NC State this weekend.
“They have a great thing going at their program. It can even get better if they recruit the right guys,” said Mbem-Bosse. “One of those guys they are trying to get is me. They told me that I fit great into their style of play, and I would be a great contributor as soon as I got here.”
Auburn is seen as the front runner for Mbem-Bosse, unofficially visiting there more than anywhere else, but the #7 Inside Linebacker thinks highly of the Wolfpack.
“They are high up there. It’s an amazing program. They play a lot of incoming freshman,” said Mbem-Bosse. “Their defense is young, so imagine them a year or two from now. It’s going to be a big obstacle going against that defense in the future.
Mbem-Bosse told me that he will make his decision before December.
