NC State TE Cary Angeline Eligible to Play vs. Marshall

Published

on

NC State Redshirt Sophomore Tight End Cary Angeline (6’7″/254)  is eligible to play in the Wolfpack’s next game against Marshall on September 22nd on the road.

Angeline played two games for Southern Cal his Redshirt Freshman season last year, but filed an appeal with the NCAA to receive immediate eligibility heading into the 2018 season, and was deemed ineligible for the first 3 games of the season.

Here’s the catch.

Angeline was only ineligible for the first three games of the season because he had to sit out 365 days from the day he left his original 4-year college (Click here to learn more about the 4-2-4 transfer rules).

Technically speaking, I believe that 365 day ticker runs out this Sunday.

As a result of the cancellation of this Saturday’s game vs. #14 West Virginia, Angeline only missed 2 games instead of 3, and is now eligible to play in the Wolfpack’s next game.

This also means, that if NC State and West Virginia can find a way to reschedule the highly anticipated game, Angeline will be a part of NC State’s offensive attack. The likelihood of the two schools finding a way to reschedule aren’t high, but haven’t been ruled out entirely at this point either.

For a full breakdown of what Angeline brings to the table, check out our Preseason Tight End Position Group Preview.

To summarize, Angeline is going to add a new dimension to the Wolfpack air attack. He was the Offensive Scout Team Player of the Year in 2016 at USC. Head Coach Dave Doeren says he’s the most versatile player they have had at NC State during his tenure, and Tight Ends Coach Eddie Faulkner thinks he could be as good as any Tight End he’s seen.

The Wolfpack are adding an All-ACC caliber player one game sooner than expected.

Here’s his Senior Season Highlights.

NC State Picks Up 1st Win at Louisville, Stomping the Cardinals 52-10

Published

on

NC State was a 16-point favorite against Louisville today, and unlike last week, they were more than able to cover such a large spread, stomping the Cardinals 52-10 on their own turf.

The Wolfpack picked up their 1st victory ever at Louisville, and improved to 7-3 on the year.

After going 3-and-out on the opening drive, and allowing Louisville to march down and kick a field goal, NC State managed to score 45 unanswered points thereafter.

For the 5th time in 2018, the Wolfpack put up 500+ yards of total offense, putting 518 on the Cardinals. Redshirt Graduate Senior Quarterback Ryan Finley passed for 316 yards, completing 72.2% of his passes, for a career high 4 touchdowns (0 interceptions). After today’s efforts, he moved into 2nd all-time in school history in career passing yards.

Three Wolfpack receivers had 7 receptions, and each one of them snagged a touchdown. Junior Kelvin Harmon had 7 receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown. Harmon became only the third receiver in school history to have two seasons of over 1,000 yards receiving. Redshirt Junior Jakobi Meyers had 7 receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown, and Sophomore Emeka Emezie had 7 receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown.

Senior Running Back Reggie Gallaspy gave NC State the boost in the rushing game they’ve been needing, carrying the ball 11 times for 73 yards and 2 touchdowns, and also had 2 receptions for 11 yards and a touchdown.

NC State has been wanting to score more touchdowns in the red zone, and today they got it across the goal line 6 out of their 7 trips into the red zone. Freshman Place Kicker Chris Dunn kicked a field goal on the other trip, making the Wolfpack a perfect 7 of 7 on the day.

Redshirt Graduate Senior Linebacker Germaine Pratt and Freshman Nickelback Tanner Ingle led the Pack in tackles, with 7. The Wolfpack had 7 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. While they may have given up 411 yards of total offense, much of it came when the Wolfpack offense was filled with reserves.

NC State finished the day +2 in turnover margin.

The Wolfpack are now 7-3, and will head to Chapel Hill next Saturday, for a 12:20pm kickoff.
